Omg, how did I just find out about this now? This tower is fantastic. The shape looks straight out of star wars. Like one of those huge skyscrapers that you would find on Coruscant.

It's a great and modern design, but i wouldn't call it futuristic.

Does anyone know the actual roof height (not counting the four overlapping parapets at the top)?

It's mainly a jewelry retailer, in fact the largest in the world (larger than e.g. Tiffany & Co.).

Edit: typical CTF Store:

That number is "500" not "600". "世界500强" is refering to Fortune Global 500 companies.
