Don't like the spire - definitely too long for the building of this shape.

Other than that:

a) I seriously don't get how this one is similar to shanghai tower
b) I would really like to see diagram showing this and some other towers (st, pingan, greenland) to have some reference how big it is. With over 130fl it may be much more massive than pingan but we can't be sure. After all lotte with "only" 550 meters have something over 120fl if I remember right.
c) Except the spire the design is quite ok. The best bit about it is that it brings us closer to a straight up tower with square section taller than burj. I guess such milestone will happen in say 5 or 10 years, most likely in china.

hope we see bigger renders soon. but it does look like the crown may feature very high ceilings for some obersavion decks an atrium and things, so it is basically a very long spire (maybe 100m+) on top of a huge crown on top of a 138 floor building. i doubt the building will have much residential space, i expect more of office and maybe hotel on top, similar to most chinese megatalls. so it won't have as low ceilings as seoul i think.

Someone felt that Ping An's spire just wasn't cutting it.

Unlike some I have no problem with spires. I think the spire on the pingan looks great. But here it's too long for the crown. It just looks unbalanced to me.

But remember that this one will have its top floor probably at 630m+

Correct. The almost famous Building With Green Roof is still standing although there seems to be some preparation going on on the plot.

this morning I saw them removing something at the west side wall of the building with the lawn on the roof.
perhaps when I come back it is already gone.
