The look seems ordinary to be called the 'Landmark'.

For now it's gonna be one, but if they keep building like they do, it won't be anything like a landmark fifteen years from now.

I like the design of the building very much, to quote what someone said before its 'simple, but elegant'.
It looks strangely similiar to the Nanjing Centre, and even again the building's height and design could be likened to Q1 in the Gold Coast, AUS.

The design does indeed look like the building that is u/c in Nanjing. Is it from the same architect? I kinda prefer this design over the design in Nanjing. It is slicker.
