OMG!!!!!!!!! I never thought there would be anything taller than the Shanghai tower in China. Or at least not anytime soon. Both designs are awesome, but Pingan IFC's design is kind of unoriginal. I still like it though.

Today's edition of SZDaily newspaper

(see the 2 latest paragraphs, does it give us hints about PingAn Intl Finance Centre?)
Ping An gets nod for its plan to sell new shares


PING An Insurance (Group) Co. of China Ltd. said Friday its shareholders approved the possible issue of new shares to Newbridge Capital Inc., the Asian arm of U.S.-based private-equity firm TPG Inc., in exchange for its stake in Shenzhen Development Bank Co.

Ping An agreed in June to acquire TPGís 16.76 percent stake in the bank by the end of 2010, as part of the insurerís plan to raise its stake in the Shenzhen-based lender to up to 30 percent from 5 percent.

Ping An said it would pay TPG either 11.45 billion yuan (US$1.68 billion) in cash or 299.1 million new Ping An shares, about 4.1 percent of its existing share capital.

The Shenzhen-based insurer said earlier it hadnít yet decided how to pay TPG. It sought shareholder approval for the share issue in the event it chooses that option.

Ping An will reach its targeted holding in Shenzhen Development Bank by buying 585 million new shares to be issued by the lender at 18.26 yuan a share.

In another development, Ping Anís trust unit plans to invest 10 billion yuan between 2009 and 2011 in real estate projects to be developed by Gemdale Corp.

Ping An said in a statement Friday its trust unit will invest about 3 billion yuan in such projects this year. It didnít specify the projects or their shareholding structure. It said the investments will help Ping An capture growth in the domestic property market. (SD-Agencies

By the way still nothing on the construction site. It's still a car-park for Coco Park.

GREAT NEWS!

At last! I was walking around ZhongXin Cheng (City Center) and saw some cranes around CocoPark. So I went there to see and I was so happy to see that all the cars were gone from the construction site.
This is officially not a parking any more and they are now leveling the construction site, I am guessing to prepare to ground breaking ceremony.
It would make sense as the latest news we got regarding this was that they would organize this on the 1st of september!
So now, if someone has more information regarding the final design, feel free to let us know!
I am really happy to be the one breaking the news!

Sorry for the quality of the pictures I only had my Iphone with me.

It might have been changed, but I too like the original design and height.
