Does anybody know the name of the building with the ICBC logo on top, in that last picture?

Also, I think the tapering will end at the level with the mech floor(?) looking thing in the core.

That is the "Time Square Excellence" tower, 218m.

And yes, the floor tapering should go vertical after the large mech floor. But the super columns will continue to taper until the smaller mech floor some 9 floor above this upcoming one.

just a curious question. how do they dismantle the cranes once it is already at the highest floor?

My best guess is that one crane will remove the other three, and then a derrick will remove the last one. That's how most buildings are done.

the spire makes sense in the building. it doubles as artwork and lightning arrester.

Btw if we compare it to the Chrysler one of "other" similarities is that the spire of ping an will also be build inside the tower and jacked up as the one of Chrysler has been.

Still I think the crown of chrysler is in the league of it's own but I will hold my final opinion until I actually see pingans crown finished.
