^ Some aesthetic variety at the SW corner would be nice, and so easy to do. Picture stepped color shades, instead of one bland color, to mimic the spiraling setbacks on the main tower.

I think the upper part of it will have aluminum fins, these show in pretty much all the renderings.

These will probably be clipped on later... remember how boring Gr333n looked for months until they got the black fins up? Now it looks awesome.
