KUNMING | Huacheng International Plaza | 558m | 1830ft | 108 fl | Pro

Still very little info, but too huge to be ignored. Plus we have gov websites confirming it.

i think it looks a bit like signature tower, afterall amazing design and i think the spire is amazing and not too long because this will be a tower that will be a total standalone like Taipei 101 and these towers look amazing with big spires and a unique and impressive design

there are some other supertall projects in approved and proposed status that may be faster than this one and there is also one under construction that will be the first supertall in the city when finished

Beautiful design. I think a taller spire fits the design, compared to many other examples around.

the spire on the tower and it's whole proportions seem to be quite comparable to 1WTC (before the spire got changed to a slimmer antenna).
