i loved this old design it was so damn awesome.

at least the skybridge is still there...


it looks a little bit like chelsea tower in the first render..


ah...how disappointing..

So the bottle opener design is basically final now? How sad. This went from being one of my favorite supertalls to meh.

I think it makes the tower look really fat in those renders. :S

And if that is the reason they changed it then that is really really pathetic. Come one China, you're supposed to have gotten over this sort of thing and be getting ready to become the new world super power. Make it a circle then claim the japenesse copied it .

To be honest, I think it's more likly to have been done for financial reasons. It's cheaper to do a square and gives more usuable space.

yeah, "M" is free advertising for BP, and letter "M" for McDonald's.

I'm calling a Spade, a spade. The new design is ugly.
Remember when someone photoshopped the tower with a square-like shape and everyone had a good laugh? Well, it came true. This is sad. I much rather have the half circle than this. I'm not going to follow the building of this tower anymore.
