Stoked to see that the red scaffolding on the lift well where it steps in has finally been removed

With due respect, I already like this more than Shanghai Tower. The form is so smart and elegant. Facade glazing is a killer!

I concur, as much as I love Shanghai Tower with its twisting 120 degrees, I gotta say I love this one even better, it's just so thoughtful, so delicate, the cladding is a piece of art itself, it's quite sophisticated, because the design is eccentric, but not too much, it's simple and simple is always better in terms of huge towers, and it's not that Shanghai Tower doesn't have all these characteristics, it actually has every each of them, but yeah I love this one even more than I love Shanghai Tower, which by the way is my favorite mega-tall structure worldwide for now, I honestly love it way more than the one in Dubai which to me always appeared generic, it might be because I don't like that city at all. On the other hand Shanghai has so much character with its flashing lights and Chinese futurism.


Wow, do I love those shiny sides, they look like mirrors, or highly polished stainless steal, which is great compared to the concave parts of the tower which have the texture on each floor, this is some magnificent design, one of those that you never even hope it'll get constructed, because they look too good to be true, luckily that's not the case with this modern marvel.

looks like the usable floor space is less than half of the gross floor place

It looks very good. But a bit too early to say what it'll look like compared to Shanghai Tower or other completed/nearly completed towers. Let's wait for the cladding go all the way up. Although I would be skeptical about this looking more impressive than ST.

I suppose our fascination comes from the beautiful cladding, it appears to be one of excellent quality + some of the fascination certainly lays in the shape of the building with the concave sides which have surface that curves inward like the interior of a circle or sphere. All in all, an extremely marvelous building, it really got my attention. I honestly cannot wait to see the crown, it will make the glossy building even sleeker.

I totally love the cladding. But I love it even more because the facade is integral to building form and performance. Smart and stylish!

I agree, also it was probably posted before, so sorry, will the building include an observatory? The top would be amazing for such stuff.

The cladding and triangular shape are what make this building fantastic and the way it slopes inward towards the top. About the usuable floor space... it seems like more usuable space the further up it goes with the core thinning out. there should be a little less than half the floors with more floor space than the bottom half.
