I prefer the new cladding. Simple and sleek!

Awesome. All cladding already on display.
Probably test panels?

Those panels look pretty awesome. If this is how actual cladding will look like then it's really great.

I prefer the old cladding, but the new cladding is still pretty good.
I'm still trying to figure out how the test cladding fits in with the design.

Me too Maybe they just stacked one piece of cladding atop of another which won't meet together on a tower like that. Not sure why would they do that instead of just putting each piece on a separate stand, but that's just all I came up with.

btw the first page is still not updated with a new renders..

If it is crafted well, it could even end up the best in China!

Whats the comparison between this and Shanghai Tower on floor area? And how about building costs between the two buildings?

Is it just me or has this project significantly slowed down?

They could be waiting for concrete to cure. That usually means four weeks of waiting before it has reached its specified strength.

I can see significant progress between the updates of yesterday and 27 May. Nothing to worry about, I'd think.

This project was extremely fast at all previous steps, even the foundation was done in "no time" and they kept this speed until CNY. From then until now we haven't seen even a quarter of the previous pace, IMO.
