Its steady fast progress. It would be interesting to see how they apply the clads at the wind turbine tunnels area. Are they mode the clads according to the curve? I hope so.
Happy holidays!

Having passed the second turbine, pearl river tower is rising at a incredible verticle speed

Around the 60th floor I think. Should top out by spring.

I love the design of this building. Although I'm doubtful of the efficiency of the wind turbines, every expert I've ever talked to has serious reservations about how much energy such turbines provide and how the maintenance will be handled.

I'm sure SOM took into account the future density of the area. But I wonder as well how much power is really going to be generated. With The Pinnacle going up very close by, and other future tall buildings and high rises, it's going to effect the wind patterns. I have my doubts as well.

The Bank of America tower in NYC also had plans for wind turbines at the top but abandoned the idea when they discovered it wasn't practical due to the wind patterns.

The tower is placed in such a way that there is wind flowing in.

what if they plant really tall flowers? lol Just joking. Hopefully this building can inspire more developers in China to choose an even more energy efficient way of building towers.
