The progress of the work is remarkable, now begins to isolate in Wuhu skyline.
Eager to see the building standing.

Can't say I don't find it a bit tacky. Kinda casino-like. But China is building so many amazing supertalls so I'll let this one slip.

Reminds me of Macau's Grand Lisboa

(As in the cladding)

A bit kitsch, but not as bad as the Lisboa, imo. It's really hard to avoid the kitsch look with yellow/gold glass, though some towers do pull it off well.

I agree. I'm always a bit sceptical with coloured glass. We'll just have to wait and see here.

The core is topped out, right? Somehow it just seems that it will be taller than 318m once the spire is added, but maybe it just looks taller than it is because it is surrounded by relatively short buildings.

That cladding is quite retro looking. Like something from 70s or 80s.
