And let me guess... American and Australian skyscrapers have classy cladding? Dont be bias, cladding on many chinese scrapers are just as good as any around the world.

Tower looks great, thanks for all the pics during construction to all who provided them.

Hmm, I don't know....maybe from some angles it looks good but from head-on it looks like it's sporting a buzz-cut. It looks like a block-head. Beautiful cladding though.

I like it the way it turned out.

In a time in which every skycraper tries so hard to be special, and every new buildings seems to have a spire. It sort of starts to become an eyesore. So its good to see some flat roofs again. Does this one have a helipad?
