That is one big mofo. Sturdiest looking building ever. Looks like it'll stand for a thousand years.

I will likely never go to China to see their incredible skyscrapers in person, but I've wondered: if I were to see the Shanghai Tower and this tower (both completed) I wonder which would look the biggest? Does anyone know how the two compare in girth?

Stone houses last for a thousand years. This will last for a million!

I would say Ping An would look bigger, because of its more imposing shape, and it is surrounded by relatively short towers that don't distract from its height.

Ping will look bigger only because it has no supertall neighbors. When put near ST, ST will look bigger becuase it is wider and it has no spire. The top of the crown is a lot higher than the roof height of Ping An.

It is disproportionate to its surroundings.

Disproportionate to the surroundings? That's why it's awesome!

Should add this to the list of "worst reason why towers are bad"
Other reasons include:
Pollution
Human rights
Being a blue box

they're building a megatall for that very reason only. because it would be a landmark in that area. if it wasn't 660 meter tall, very few people (including me) would give a crap about it
