The angled roof line is definitely in play now, showing up on the west side they are about 3-4 floors into it at this point so you can see how it is starting to angle away from one corner of the building. Having said that I am still now sure how this building will look from various directions.

^I believe that is correct, looks like the residential tower is 360 feet and 439 units which is the largest structure and the hotel appears to be 200 feet. This is a massive change for the area and will be a very busy place once complete. Hope to see additional renderings before long.
