Hmm, I didn't notice. But now I see the cladding go. Rise, my third favorite tower.

I thought the Chinese did not like the number four.

You're right. 4 is pronounced "si", which for some reason sounds like the Chinese word for "die". Not very popular. Megatall twins wouldn't make much of a difference, because it would still be the fourth "group".

And besides, they were supposed to be the past, present, and future, and there is no word for after future, so I guess this is as far as we're getting. Imagine how much the trio would be made fun of in 2097 or something like that.

The tones for the number "four" and the verb "die" in Chinese are different so they don't sound like each other to a native speaker. The pin yin is the same though.

what i think they should do next is building several 300m-350m buildings. they would not be count towards the big 3 and they would fill the area. the density in lujiazui is really low and that is one of the very few things that is not great about the skyline, so i think building filler supertalls would be the next staep instead of thinking about one tall tower again

agree, some 300m+ towers arround the 3 would be quite good
