Will this tower be the second tallest in the world once complete ?

It will be the second tallest. After 828m Burj Khalifa.
But not for a long time. Around 2020 Jeddah Tower 1000m+ will be the first one, than the Burj and the Suzhou Zhongnan Center with 729m (as far as they really start construction, it's still on hold).
And don't forget the Iconic Tower... that likely will be the highest man made structure ever by 2020.

I really didn't like the design of this building at first, but I gotta say, it's really grown on me.

In all honesty, I think the rounded corners make the tower look rather clumsy. The beautiful cladding does make up for a lot though. In any circumstance I love the height.

I love this building. With its rounded corners. I think it's not only a design element. I don't know how strong the winds could be in Wuhan, but i can imagine they round the corners to minimal the wind pressure and make it more stable. Anyway i have nothing to critize, the hight is breathtaking, the shape is awesome, and the cladding looks fantastic.

They definitely added strength in the corners with the cross braces going all the way up, instead of just at the truss belts.

here is an idea. looks like you could reach up and touch the flat middle part.

It looks like they left out some of the horizontal shades(?) on the cladding. I hope they will be added later.

Look at the metal borders, there are more shades attached to it

I'm very curious how it looks later when the bathroom is going installed there; refer to the drawing :O

I think those floors are at a higher level where they dont need the bracing. I dont know what they have in store for these. No one wants to provide floorplans, they would rather call one a hater.

Maybe. But the whole discussion about it becomes strange...
We know they planed to use this space for bathrooms, and from the pictures we can see it's enough room to make a comfortable place for...well...what ever people are doing in a bathroom

With a nice interior design this rooms could turn out great, with a breathtaking view for free.

But what's the point to belabor permanently on this as if these bathrooms were the whole tower? I don't call you a hater but i don't understand why this small part is so important for you?
If someone would release exact floorplans with every detail, would you be satisfied then?
