Very nice tower, unique, elegant and modern. Good work Nanjing. I hope we will get something like this in Australia one day.

Beautiful desing
But cladding progress looks very slow...
When is the tower expected to be completed?

I still say it doesn't look 450m, the Sears still looks much taller. An optical illusion? Was 450m verified?

450 m to the spire, that's why greenland doesn't look taller but it is, even if the Sears have more floors. The same way if you compare Chicago Trump tower with HK 2IFC.

LOOKS TALLER??? looks much smaller than 450m to me, because of the width to height ratio.
