How big is the tower's footprint? Looks to be about 75x200ft. Is this correct?

And I wonder if they're gonna change that sign that says "Eighth Tallest Building in the World" every time something taller is complete. I'm sure that'd be a pain in the ass with all these constructions going on in the world.

i think they let it like that for quite a while, since "24th tallest building in the world" wouldn't sound impressive anyway and they have a date under it, so its legit to let the sign like that.

I hope there will be at least an observation area to go with the restaurant.

It will take time. Especilly since we're not talking just of Shenzhen but perhaps another dozen or so Chinese cities which literally have their world-class skylines with some of the most amazing supertall skyscrapers U/C as we speak. I bet even in China not everyone is aware what is happening, say in Tianjin (Binhai CBD) or Shenzhen (Qianhai) which are building projects unprecedented in world history by their scale and ambition.

I was very impressed when I visited Guangzhou and Shenzhen last year. Their subway systems are far superior than what I've seen in New York and Chicago and the bus systems were superb. I loved the electric buses powered by overhead wires and their airports were beautiful, clean and efficient. Love for CAN and SZX.

What a fantastic tower! The entrance is awesome. I can't wait for some pictures of the interior at the top.

I hope time will give this tower the fully deserved status of a landmark.

One of the most underrated buildings in the world. A true gem.

What? Do you mean from T/O? Because if so, I don't think this building is entirely externally complete yet. Plus, there is still an advertisement on the side, and I doubt they'd "complete" the building with that on the side.
