Everything, except CITIC Plaza (Shenzhen), Shimao International Plaza (Shanghai) and Minsheng Bank Building (Wuhan). My favourites are ICC (Hong Kong), IFC (Hong Kong), SWFC (Shanghai) and Dongguan TBA.

Nanjing Greenland. It may change when Ping'An is completed though, but for now the one in Nanjing is the most gorgeous for me. It is one of the few buildings where a spire looks simply amazing and the whole building looks so futuristic and the cladding is perfect on it aswel, there is nothing i would change to the building, i think they did everything right there. China has a lot of high class buildings, but none can compete to it as of now for me. GZIFC and SWFC come rather close though.

My top 3 favorite currently existing Chinese skyscrapers:

1) International Commerce Center
2) Pearl River Tower
3) The Center

My top 3 favorite under construction:

1) Ping An Finance Center
2) Chow Tai Fook Guangzhou
3) Goldin Finance 117

Also, I think this would be a really cool one-on-one competition! Has there been a purely Chinese skyscraper tournament yet? Because there really should! How about it, YF?

Also, we could probably find 10x more beautiful pictures of each of these magnificent structures (except central plaza, it's ugly) right here on SSC! Wikipedia's the lazy man's way out...nevertheless, thanks for creating the thread, Highcliff, I bookmarked it so I can quickly refer back to some of my favorite buildings

This One In Hong Kong but since it's not a Skyscraper (it's 185m), I voted Nina Tower with Kingkey and BoChina close behind

Jin Mao by far the ugliest

difficult to say which is the best. but at the top would definitely be: ICC in Hongkong, SWFC in Shanghai, IFC in Guangzhou and the Bank of China in Hongkong!

SWFC is easily the best imo, and probably the best supertall built in the 21st century.
