thank you very much for your enthusiasm.
I certainly know that these projects in the picture are not real as of today. I was more wondering whether or not they represent any proposals at all. And i think they don't, which is what I meant with artist impression.

Much better than Ping An, which was ruined by cladding.

Very disappointed about the outcome, it looks cheap on photos. This one seems to become much better.

Ping An Finance Center? If yes, then it is surely a supertall, nearly a megatall. But that one is not even possible to blame for anything, especially for cladding, so I hope you're talking about something different.

Nice photos with context. The cladded lower floors already looking sleek compared to adjacent buildings.

Close-ups of the facade look so advanced. Truly a tower for the 21st century!

I agree. To me it represents a true architectural marvel designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill. I wish they designed something this beautiful and huge for New York, or Chicago.

Both side cranes, must be raised. The core can not be increased from them anymore.

I don't think I understand - does that mean that a new crane will be placed on a wing, and that blue object is part of the new crane?

Hi:
It is a bracket for the shaft of the cranes, which will be
mounted on the side of the core. Each crane will be held by 2 or 3 of the brackets, one at the base of the shaft and the other 2 will be a few floors higher. Hydraulics at the base bracket will be used to jack up the crane. Then the base bracket will be moved up and so on

Massive, but it reminds me a lot of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Thank you for the explanation of how the cranes will be raised. Engineering is definitely a marvel to behold especially on this grand scale of a building

Anyone know the glass specification? The neutral color looks very nice and just the right level of transparency.
