Skyrise Completing Wind-Tunnel Tests, Releases Rendering Of Observation Decks

A long series of wind tunnel tests for Skyrise was in the home stretch late last month.

The developer has also released new renderings of some of the attractions planned at the tower, including observation decks.

Major construction isn’t underway at the project site as of this week, and a live camera appears to have been removed from the Skyrise website.

According to Arquitectonica, the design of the tower was not inspired by a hairpin. Instead, it should be “interpreted as a giant wave, or a billfish jumping out of the water, a giant fishing net, or even a flowing dress over a sensuous form.”
