So, this photo of a new tower in Las Vegas is starting to go viral for some strange reason. . .

Apparently, it’s a real project in development. From their website:
Bleutech Park’s mixed-use environment (Live-Learn-Work-Play) features “Sustainable Living”- a cluster of net zero carbon footprint workforce residences. The Park will be home to Ultra-Luxury residential towers, Hotel, Offices (reimagining workspaces of the future), Retail and the tallest Entertainment Tower, redefining the skyline of Las Vegas. Bleutech Park will introduce a new biome to the desert valley as vertical gardens, powered by kinetic energy from footfall, overall contributing to a new sustainable and diversified ecosystem for Las Vegas.
The new tower is being described as “banana-shaped”:

Yeah, that’s not a banana:
I know what this looks like. And it's not a banana. https://t.co/RzopCjpXYQ

It does look like a very happy building:
Is that a new high-rise or is Vegas just happy to see me? https://t.co/QrJksG3sDI

But it’s definitely not a banana:

We would like to meet the designer, however:
It took a lot of balls to propose this design, but I'm pretty sure the architect is gonna get the shaft. https://t.co/NJxA6fmfqT

Because that is one awesome looking. . .boot:
I mean, that’s obviously a silver thigh-high boot, not a banana. https://t.co/oU1thPPBv9

And, yes, if does need a fountain on the top, than you very much:
Can only support this if a fountain is added at the top.
I’ve taken the time to render some mock-ups. Please consider. pic.twitter.com/fiWaXoFmyK
