But the gold in the original renderings was slick and understated, and complimented the overall design. There was no gaudiness to it at all. It also made the building slightly remind of art deco style. That feeling is seriously lessened with the generic colors in the latest renderings.

I do prefer the new (silver) color too. Gold looks tacky.

If there is a tower that can pull gold color without being tacky, it is this one. I wish it was gold.

No rebar?

Holy crap this will be one sturdy tower--Steel plates incased in concrete. Has any other super tall been built like this?

^Pretty much all the chinese supertalls are being built like this; its just that the form work for the concrete usually covers up the steel.

Always wondered if NY WTC would have collapsed if being built like most recent chinese towers...... btw: Shanghai Tower is being built just like Ping An, Seoul Lotte Tower and many others as well.

Probably doing some destructive testing on the windows. Hitting them with high winds, projectiles, and what not.

I do love that gold but I suppose even if made silver, this building will look superb. Great new renderings! So excited to see this go up.

awesome video, havn't seen it before. so the gold cladding was changed earlier already it seems, but we never noticed until recently . the more i read and see about the project, the more i love it though, i think this will be one of my favorite skyscrapers once finished.
