I love the base. Are both sides similar at the bottom?

The base looks great! It's almost like the building walked over a vent in the street and had it's "dress" blown upward.

Like that?


I agree, the base is quite an interesting sight. But the sides of the building seem so dull/hazy in some way, like they aren't able to reflect at all. Is it just the photos or did they use some other glass there?

No, the skirt is only on one side (main entrance).

Looks pretty close to Shun Hing Square, however. Although Shenzhen's biggies certainly aren't clustered, as this is a very linear CBD. Somewhat like Dubai in a superficial sense.

It seems like they're testing some LEDs on the building.

I agree with that! You'll have to go behind the front building to get to the entrance.

Nice! the surrounding buildings look like dwarfs beside the tower... perhaps they stood out only a few years ago...
