How many floors has it gained since the first picture? I'd be interested to see how it compares to 432 Park's schedule.

It'll probably be like he Chrysler build is in NY. Tallest for a short period of time, but a favorite among locals and tourists.

What I also like is that this design matches the height. It doesn't look disproportional.

The angles are perfect too. It slopes at just the right rate every time. Couldn't have been done better in my opinion.

yeah the design is amazing. if a taller tower wants to be more iconic they really need to pull of an amazing design. but we still have greenland wanting to have a building in shenzhen in the future, so we will see what other designs we will get after this first megatall

and before kingkey it had Shun Hing Square, so i get the feeling if Caiwuwei gets constructed it will steal the title of being iconic from Ping An again, simple because it is in the perfect location and has a kind of Pudong feel attached to it, since two former tallest join the skyline there.

I also hope thet ther will be other tall buildings in Futian District in the 450m-550m range to balance the building a bit. Sometimes I heard that they plan another 600m tall building in the Futian CBD, how true is that?

aswell as Shun Hing Square
