Who called this an eyesour? eyesour? Maybe I read that on the ST thread, but I have heard the word eyesore.. And neither ST or Ping An is an eyesour or eyesore. These clusters of Giant's going up, all look damn good to me, Golden Finance without the jewel on top might be considered an "eyesour", I just don't like the 4 dorsal fin look. The jewel will make it a top 5, easily.

Actually for "Shanzhen", "山镇 (means hilly small town)" would be a better Chinese translation.

Nevertheless, great vedio made by comet the cat! thanks for sharing!

I wonder what the cladding is going to be like. I bet it's going to be epic, like the renderings!

But it won't be golden like in some renders. It will be silver.

So why they made renderings with a golden cladding? It would be cool if they build it with the golden cladding

i think the silver cladding looks more modern, yet not as unique. probably like both options about the same amount, so the change wasn't too much of a deal for me

I called the Shanghai Ping'an building an eyesour (yup I effed up . I think that's a universally accepted opinion.

You're alright in my book , just having fun with words, but you're entitled to your opinion.. That's what makes this country great, that and crooked cops to laugh at.

You're right about the golden cladding (cool), but, as I was looking at the very 1st pg of this thread they show both, and with the silver 1 you can see those cross beams or those beams ( that look like an x) they're erecting now, looks like the beams are over the entrance and sides of the silver render. But the golden render, it doesn't show those. I mean, I don't know if that's a telltale sign the bldg will silver, because they can very easily change it to Gold with the same design. Just letting you know what I saw in reference to the color.
