I like the building fine. I think though they could have done a better job for the top of that mall. Why not utilize the space somehow as a public space. Running track, places to sit and eat. All that piping and vents etc are ugly.

That building is in Bossier City, across the river. It was my old hometown.
Either way I actually think that the Mercury City Tower is a nice design, and I like the Copper color facade.

This is a great looking building.
And I'm glad to see them use a different colour for the glass, rather than the standard blue/green that seems to be going up on virtually every other new construction around the world.

This building looks awesome! The only reasons I dislike it is because it's taller than anything Australia could produce

It is the most iconic tower in the group period. Haha, I love the copper cladding, it lives to its name.

Hey, I just won some money in that building a couple days ago, 400 bucks and my first time in a casino and last probably.

On another note, the cladding of this supertall is so tacky and gaudy, yuck.

Thumbs down Powerful Ugly

Wow, this is perhaps the tackiest new tower in the world after the Mecca Clock Tower Hotel. Just putrid all around - the structure itself and especially the glass cladding. Yuck.

Somehow, this is very fitting of all of the negative things the new Moscow has come to symbolize and represent.

I don't know. I sort of have a thing for gold glass. I would bet it looks great in the setting sunlight.

I personally love it, and the fact it rises fast compared to the other towers.
