That photo depicts Kwan's design that resulted after people said the building should be more modern and broken up and with a corner entrance. I think Corazon and Juliet may have influenced it as the renderings for those popular buildings may have been around at the time.
Harris Green guidelines recommend staggered setbacks to encourage a terraced look to towers but developers and architects prefer straight-sided buildings for various reasons. De Hoog will propose a straight-sided tower pulled back from the podium that will satisfy the setback requirements.
