Still no spire and apparently the crane is gone. Will they assemble it via helicopters or was it cancelled in the end?

Pretty sure it won't be, in the renders in the first post the spire looks about 7-8 regular floors tall.

Looks like a lengthened version of those porcelain coffee jars old people collect without the spire. Bad idea.

yeah, the top looks unbalanced without the spire. too bad they cheaped out, always thought about this building like an alternative version to Changzhou Modern Media Center. Very similar, yet different in many aspects, but both the tallest by far in their respective city. both have similar dimensions overall, but one is rounded, one very straight, one symmetrical, one not. one cladding is modern glass, one is traditionally and golden.

I have my doubts that it's over 300m. Looks about 250m to me.

Since it is very likely no longer a supertall, it should be moved out of the supertall forums, and probably moved to completed as well.

It doesn´t look bad, pity we have so few professional pictures with finished building. Some nice pictures on gaoloumi: http://www.gaoloumi.com/forum.php?mo...e%3D1&page=730

The first picture worths to be uploaded here. Would anyone recommend me some 100% free uploader? Since tinipic was fired from skyscrapercity, I´m posting no pictures. http://www.gaoloumi.com/forum.php?mo...isplay&fid=112
