Exactly this.

I would not worry about the towers looking all alike. The developers themselves said this buildout will take at least 10 years, so the chances that each of the 4 phases has a different design is pretty high. The original LSE renders had all (fairly ugly) towers looking like mirror images of each other, with varying heights. We ended up getting a very diverse collection of towers after 15-20 years.
