on a less serious note, there is surprising amount ot green area all around the building. not something I've expected to see in China. good to see

oh, and the cladding is brilliant, as been said above

If you change your thought process here to:

How should Greenland invest money into the city of Wuhan where the middle class population has risen exponentially, which is increasing demand for professional services and in turn, creating demand for premium office space, apartments and hotels?

You might find this building is suddenly more "useful".

Do you see the advertisement on the fence on the right? It seems to say 606m - was there a height reduction? Anyone?

The core of something it says but theres no way of telling if it says 606m on the sign but even still the old height was 606m before it was increased to 636 no height reduction there's no aviation regulations to inhibit the building no blockage of flight paths so no worries.

It's severely flooding Wuhan lately though (as you can also see in the pictures). Just today a friend shared this: http://www.19lou.com/forum-289-threa...68923-1-1.html
