Yup, all the proposals in the first post suggest the tower is to have around 120 floors or so.

Ummm... I'm not a fan of any of these (except maybe the 3d but only partly) so I'll vote for... the tallest one.

I like 1-4. 5 looks like some type of mega computer. :whacko:

Only thing I suggest is wrapping the base around the tower in #1

I say build them all as well, in shanghai, but not all of them next to each other like they did with SWFC and Jin Mao (and one of these).

But i think 5 is the best. The top reminds me of Renzo Piano's cultural center in New Caledonia.

no 4 for me no doubt at all, 1 and 2 look too big, 3 is a little bland, and 5's just a bit all over the place. 4 is beautiful
