It's mind-blowingly huge and it's not even past the tapering part!

Corner cladding, probably.

Does anyone know what happened with the plan for the second (hotel) tower, the one that was originally to be 307 m tall, but then supposedly redesigned to 450+ m? I've walked next to CoCo park the other day, no activity on that plot, but the next one supposedly got approvals for twin 300 m buildings now...

The test cladding is still packed in plastic. Hard to judge this way.

Looks like average glass to me. Not mirror glass, so it should be possible to look inside.

Rise you Glorius lady Ping An !

And what a beauty she is indeed. This building will simply be the most beautiful ever built. It has already replaced the ICC hong kong as my fave. Many here prefer the Shanghai tower as the best in China but I think that building looks too much like a burrito in my opinion.
