A truly iconic tower! Cladding looks pretty good so far.

Thanks alot.!

They already had one Iconic Tower, the Jin Mao one, then came along a second one, the Financial Center and now this one ... how many more Iconics will be built by 2025 I wonder!

Great, it seems that the cladding is transparent enough that we'll be able to see the internal cladding clearly!

When you look up at the tower the outer glass is half transparent due to reflection of the sky, but when you look down at the tower, the outer facade appears so transparent you almost cannot see them !!!!

I guess it's designed this way so you cannot look up and see under someone's skirt from the outside

I see that the second core setback has been done. We can expect the core to rise more quickly now.

This thread is all about one of the most incredible buildings under construction in the world.
And you still get people arguing the toss over irrelevant crap.

Some skyscrapers are just pinnacles at the top. This one's chunky all the way!
