Height is impressive for the rest it looks like any other project in China. Yet another boring CBD, with a shopping mall, wide avenues and too much open space. Can't they just be a bit more creative, every city will be exactly the same.

or you can build a one-story building that looks like shoe. That's creative enough for you?

Maybe if it is an exciting building, yes. But if you have been in a Chinese CBD you know what I am talking about. Those areas maybe look impressive, but on streetlevel its horrible. Dead areas.

Of course the plots are usually way too big, but you also have to see that those Chinese CBDs are all pretty new districts (even Shanghai's Lujiazui) compared to North American CBDs: I'm sure with time those CBD's will get livelier.

I think the cost savings of the blue roof buildings is about U$50 million per year !

Love the design of this megatall and cant'wait to see it to begin raising to the sky.
Unfortunately, the excavation work seems to be in an early stage still, I guess we'll have to wait almost an year before seeing something coming out from the ground level.
