Hey Guys
Took some pictures a few minutes ago:


They already removed the east outside cargo elevator but did not yet add the glass face where it was.


Behind the scaffolds you can see part of the buildings uppermost glass face, but it's not yet completed on the entire south-front as well as on part of the east- and west-front.
A small spire is already mounted on the top of the building but I guess it's not yet the definitive one.

It reminds me somehow the towers in Philadelphia. I like it.

It has taken two years to complete the spire, almost the same they have spent to build the whole structure. Maybe there was a redesign problem with the crown?

Found this great diagram on gaoloumi.com. Sorry about the extremely large size...

Nice diagram. I think it says the height of the roof is 308 or 309 m. The height to the spire is definitely says 333 m.

Compared to the picture in post 183 (march), it appears only some of the curtain wall has been installed where the external elevator was located. Not much progress for two months...

The crown is finally done! This is a completed skyscraper now. Good for the city of Wenzhou.

Thanks for posting the updates.

Jession, 7-16-10. Kind of a shame this one is not in a more prominent Chinese city. But whatever... one of my favorites. Love the crown!

For some reason this doesn't look like a supertall. Maybe it's because it's wider than most buildings that tall, making it seem shorter.
