I just realized how similar this looks to 2IFC at night; both are great designs, unique in certain aspects, yet very similar overall.

I also wonder how it would look if it had a twin; I bet they would look very imposing, along similar lines as that of the original WTC.

Since this thread has been pretty quiet, I thought I would post an update - it's almost completed now:

Only very few buildings look higher than this one. Almost all buildings higher as 442 meters have enormous spires which stretch the height of it. If someone would make a diagram of all completed buildings higher than 440 meters this one would be one of the highest without spires, together with SWFC in Shanghai and ICC in Hong Kong.

Apart from that it of course is one hell of a beatiful building.

Even the announcments on the metro when you get to the nearest stop (Grand Theater / Da JuYuan) refer to "DiWang DaSha".
