This, kingkey and shanghai tower have to be the most pleasing to the eye towers going up in the country. Beautiful designs.

It's underrated in terms of the posts # it received. people these days only pay attention to 500m and 600m s.

Is this building really capable of powering all of its own energy? I find that hard to believe.

There are few buildings that can match its renders after finished. This is one of them.

This is a great piece of architecture. Great tower. When can actual opening date be expected?

No. It powers around 50% (solar and wind). However, it was designed to power more than 100% In the planning they had gas turbines for the remaining energy need. Idea was during the day energy will be used by the building and during the night it would have been sold to the city grid. Guangzhou city didn't have a program like that so they had to cancel it.

Can we have confirmation that it is officially complete? They topped it out a whole year ago, so I don't see what they could be waiting for.
