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.
