Yeah, really elegant, but the 4 smaller towers could use some variation in design.

Need more angles of the structure beyond the roof to judge whether i overall like it. The location is superb, i agree.

The tallest building in the picture is spectacular and amazing Almost 700 meters and no setbacks to lessen the soaring effect! This will be one of the greatest buildings ever built.

So the building on the left side is the Kingkey 100, and the tallest one is about 1.5 times taller than that.. at least 660m I think.

Arround 660m seem to be realistic to me, though another 700m tower would be nice

Kingkey looks very small. i hope they really go for a design like that. a pure 660m tower without a spire nor a crown, or if they change the design i hope the roof stays at the same height and we get 700m+. a simple design like this, a box that just turns a bit is just amazing.

Looks like a taller version of the Gherkin in London. Don't really like this design for Shenzhen.
