This has been discussed often here before, basically it comes down that the Chinese thought the hole resembled the Japanese flag. With the ongoing row between the two countries, The design has been changed in order to prevent more tensions between the two countries.

^er you made that yourself, or found it on an earlier page, it was never a real design either way we're getting the one with the square hole

She's looking really tall now. The desing without the hole would never fly. The wind would sway the building too much.

Aren't pleasant surprises, well... pleasant?

I'm sure many thought the glass would simply be blue, but now we know better.
