Sounds like this is going to be a very awesome project! Not so sure about the tower on the top, maybe it lights up?
Did anyone catch whether there'll be LED lighting features, which was hinted about at one point by the developer? If this thing is lit up with synchronized multi-color LEDs it could very easily be an icon, even at "only" 530 feet.
Yes, LED lighting. When they looked at the sketchup model and rotated around the north side of downtown this building really stood out. It was obvious that it was quite a bit taller than 4Marq even without the spire.
I left feeling more optimistic about the project than before. This new design is far better than what they released earlier, but I wouldn't call it iconic. Still, it's very exciting and it looks a LOT better than the other Four Seasons buildings mentioned earlier in the thread...
