looks amazing, the tallest tower screams for a longer spire though. normally i am against large spires, but for such a design it looks a bit like there is a spire missing. and is that a clock at the top of the building?

Nice! But risky. This could turn out to be very kitch or NY Art-deco style (which would be awesome).

The taller looks like a fat Chrysler with a clock. The smaller ones look like stubbier versions of Liberty Place in Philly. But I like it, art deco towers are rarely built in China.
For the tallest they're probably planning a pyramidal spire like the one on Morgan Stanley's HQ in NYC (one of the most prominent buildings in the skyline)

It is very kitsch, however it turns out.

interesting, still looks art-deco ish. Although now the masterplan looks like some sort of post modern palace. The crown looks good. Hopefully it won't end up being kitschy.

I predict another masterpiece like this.



It does look more like One Liberty Place than Chrysler though.
