The design was updated and that part will actually be a silvery metal (probably aluminium, judging by the clad sample)

This render makes the Ping An International Finance Center look as tall as the Burj Khalifa. And you can see Ping An International Finance Center South in this render, the shorter building, at the bottom. I'm looking forward to the glass being installed.

That render is also old, this is the newest render of the official design, (the south tower also does not look like the above rendition either)

The building looks AMAZING in that picture... But I've never seen that render. How do you get these renders? Cause you can't get them on google images.

And why do the buildings in the background look like they're from some kind of model or something? Because in renders of American buildings, the artists actually care to photoshop or recreate background buildings.

when i look at the renders i think this has gone from epic to great to ok. sad. but maybe the real thing will look better than theblast render. on the render it looks kinda bland.

I think it looks sleeker and more modern with silver. You can't go wrong with silver.

True. even gold colour can look cheap and dated if not done right.

It's actually an exception with gold if it's looks good.

Seems they installing more steel at the base for the cladding. Looks promising.

Personally, I think the new color, even though it's more bland, is an improvement over the previous renders.

Have to agree with that one guy,, this building is very imposing, but I feel the same with GF117. The construction, the floors, the concrete, just everything on these 2 builds. just seem so massive,, even much more than 1WTC.
