The new sign on Aurora will definitely make Shanghai look more Chinese.

That AURORA text always did kinda bother me...
It wasn't hideous, but it did stand out a bit too much to be classy and beautiful like the rest of the building with the golden facade... Maybe it'll become fully stylish from now on. I think it's a good and a welcome change.

Pretty sure they will install new text, just in Chinese parts are already up and it certainly will be lit as well

I think that it's some kind of distortion or something because the building in the background also look weird. Maybe it's a panorama and images are not well connected.

Anyway, maybe, in my opinion, one of the best projects out there.

I just find this logo very good and suitable for Lujiazui. I will miss it.

In Hong Kong lots of skyscrapers have AIA or Haier or whatever...

Jin Mao is now the Tyrion Lannister of Shanghai, dwarfed by SWFC and even more by ST
