Agree, gold would have been tacky. This looks great so far. Still fuming about the spire though

I just can't seem to get on board with this building. It's extremely modern but it lacks soul.

Hmm a shame about the height reduction if true. This means the tower won't be the world's second tallest when built but will be the fifth tallest
