Excellant!

This is a very fine tower ... modern, sleek, attractive! Congratulations to Nanjing for joining the relatively small "club" of cities with supertall skyscrapers!!!

Thank u for your picture~

It's very nice

But there is a small mistake in your pcture. The core of this tower is getting small now

The no. of floors was changed from 69 to 88, but I have no idea about the height. However, I don't think it should be taller now, after seeing the renders I think they just made the spire much shorter adding floors. In the first renders the spire looked 1/4 of the building or so.

OMG, 93 floors?


Maybe the floors beyond 71st floor will be closed to public. You know Jin Mao officially has 88 floors, but if you include technical floors under the pinacle it has 93.

i dont think uninhabitable floors/levels can be included in count. from 71-90 doesnt look like inhabitable? so i would say this tower has 70 floors. not 90.
just like Burj Dubai. it has 162 inhabitable and another 30 uninhabitable floors above this which are not allowed to be included in overall count.
