i am not that impressed with the clading choice...

I believe this building deserves something better. But hey maybe it is just because we still dont get the whole picture yet. But I strongly believe they should do better on that regard.

We should wait till the inner cladding goes up, before we starting to judge the cladding.

The whole point of the clear outer cladding will be the visual impact of seeing another wall of cladding behind it and when we finally see the completed building with it's unusual shape and sleek design I think it's going to be spectacular.

Chinese buildings usually have really beautiful cladding. They've gotten a ton of experience in this field during the last 20 years or so considering the resources and minerals that they're buying from all over the world that are required in the production of these glasses. I'm sure it won't turn into something like the Trump Tower in Chicago, which looks nowhere near on paper.

Great progress on the cladding, I see Oriental Financial Center is progressing pretty fast too.

wow this project has shot up since i last checked how tall is it now? i may be wrong but ive heard that overall the chinese tend to build very low quality buildings but this cluster is certainly an exception. so it being at level 70 more or less has it surpassed the 1000ft mark?

Upon completetion, this will be the most beautiful building in the world,, Just 3 super different, monster skyscrapers, sitting all within a sq mile of each other. I can't wait for this beast to top-out,, too me I'm more impressed with the height of this bldg, than I am of the burj,, Just seems like the final 800ft or so are just useless on the Burj.. This tower will be utilized throughout the whole Structure.. Just Awesome
