So are the spires antennas?

China isn't only the world's leader in skyscraper construction, it's also by far the biggest when it comes to disappointing height cuts.

Let's see if they in the end actually reach 300m.

Well; I guess it just goes to show what a landmark it is whenever a building actually does end up as a completed supertall...

I am one of the designers of the project, from LWK & Partners. I'm sad to say that currently the spires are indeed canceled.

The towers have already passed the 300M mark. The core and facade overrun will extend to a final height of 335M.

Cheers

I can live with that. 335m is a good height to say the least and the spires were not an integral part of the design anyway. Would have prefered having them, but it's not a really big deal to me.

They should cancel only one spire. As a "tribute" to old WTC it would be much more popular in the west. China is really week at promotion. They are building billion of towers but nobody will see them. They won´t save 0.1 yuan by reducing both towers. They´ll have plain, ordinary project like any other. Please tall anybody to the owners that they are idiots

if they cancel only one spire, people would call it a copy of the old WTC, i rather have both or neither, it also makes it real twins, if they are exactly the same.

I for myself prefer look on towers that are a bit different to towers that are 100% the same. Maybe in some other countries it´s different, but in CZ nobody knows about GUIYANG, maybe 1% of population. "Copy" of WTC would be interesting for many people, especially western media. When I watched TV spot about Shanghai Tower, 40% of the spot was about some other skyscrapers in the west, especially Burj Khalifa. Our media from some reason very rarely inform about something from East (some success of East) that has nothing to do with West. But the other thing is the esthetic side of the projects. I don´t know how to explain it... People in Guiyang would like to look at buildings that are a bit different more than buildings that look the same, wouldn´t they? I think it takes more interest to watch 2 similar things, that aren´t the same, just a bit different. Glance at 2 same things is the same glance like on 1 thing. Now it will be just 2 boxes, nothing special. The height of 406 m was also impressive.

I don't consider huaguoyang project as a WTC copy, because wuhan has the real copied ones
