    “why was it even built? […] A speculative building initiated by a private developer, it only went ahead when the municipal government agreed to rent a substantial chunk of the office space. In doing so, it will vacate two other towers to the west of the city, designed by SOM in the 70s, which it rescued in the same way when the real estate market crashed in 1976. As history repeats itself, so continues the vicious cycle of speculation, developers cheered on and bailed out by the government, thirsty for the next iconic project that will bring the magic fairy-dust of inward investment. Or will it?”
