what's with the 606 on the red banner, is that it's roof height and 636 is the crown than?

"606 spirit",just a slogan,perhaps because of its 606m height at beginning,but still using the old slogan although the height was changed.there is no need to changed it to "636 spirit"or something,perhaps the final height may change again,or its not just means height anymore.totally a slogan now.

I've explained it few pages ago.

There is an old diagram that show that the initial height was 606m

This tower is just perfect in every way. And i'm very glad they chose this form of cladding. The contrast beetween the smooth corners and the horizontal (steel?) elements at the front makes it so nice
And the design of the top part is also interesting. Neither a boring flat roof nor a hight cheating spire. I'm sure it will be even more spectacular at night with a light installation.

Regarding general cladding, incontestably one of the most beautiful. However, since the tower is expected to be very tall and as it is pretty complex/loaded (with the kind of stripes), I fear it to be a bit boring.
I hope this skyscraper will be taller than 700m. And it would be great if a documentary was made. It would be pleasant to watch.

The cladding is sheer perfection. Hadn't seen something like this since the Pearl River Tower.

Completion? Maybe the end of 2018 maybe sooner maybe later depends on construction speed, delays etc. We will wait to see the outcome

Totally agree! Look at the perfectly curved glazing. This tower leads the way of megatall complex facade!
