I am hosting a build contest that will begin later this week. You should check it out if you are interested

This is one of my oldest skyscraper designs. I began drawing something similar to this back in 2008, and since then have been developing it over the past six years in drawings, Sketchup (where it's actual height exceeds 500m, and floor count is 93), and now in Minecraft. Like the Spires project, this has been in every minecraft city since Alpha 1.2.6. The initial design is loosly based off of the Shanghai World Financial Centre, but reverses the tapering. The original tower is located in the center of the Mainland's west district.

In an updated version of this, similar to how i updated another one of my old designs for Murata City, this tower's height was increased from 184m to 223m, and to keep the proportions relatively similar, the base of the tower was expanded to 32 x 32. In the World Save, both towers are placed next to each other so you can see the difference in size. The schematic also has both of these towers as well in a .zip file.

I am always open to name suggestions for this tower, so feel free to leave them in the comments below

Original Dimensions
Dimensions: 25x25x185

New Dimensions
Dimensions 32 x 32 x 225 (2m below grade for fountain in lobby)

Using the High Rossferry City texture pack and LB Photo Realism Pack
Thank you Darkone55, and Scuttles

I have recreated the tower by increasing it proportionally to 223m with a base of 32 x 32. This is to fit within the skyline of Murata City. Everything was recreated from scratch while referencing the original design

Murata Finance Tower (MFC). The tower is like the Shanghai World Finace Centre so i think a name similar to that would be good.

I have no idea for a name but,
I can see that your renders have improved in the past year.
And think about using the second picture as first one because on the current first one it is unclear which skyscraper you mean.

I took your advice. I agree, it does make it more clear. And yeah, the renders improved, the original images were screenshots from MCEdit, and then edited in photoshop. it was before i knew about Chunky

lol, i know, it's quite insightful. But i am open to suggestions for a name. It's just in the years that this design has been floating around, it never got a name
