Yeah, but the Barwa Tower will surpass this tower as well.

Reminds me of the IDS building in Minneapolis in the early 70s... the middle finger! (except this one is shaped differently, which helps)

A little too "futuristic" for me with so many trapezoidal looking angles... but it still looks cool.
