All we need is a right vantage point and all the towers (E Pacific, Merchants, Ping'an, Excellence Century, Hon Kwok, SEG, Feng Long, Kingkey, Shun Hing) can all be in one single pano.
And it appears the best vantage points are actually in Hong Kong - on some of the small hills just across the river.



This is from Google street view HK taken from Sham Wan

p.s. late reply I know, I too didn't think it was possible to have them in the same photo.

This tower will be completed in 2015 and it's probably only going to be 588 meters.

Yeah I've zoomed in a bit to focus on the plot. You can see the original quality here

nddaily did this 360 degree aerial photography all over Shenzhen, I'm trying to save as much of it as possible before they take it off.

The unobscured plot right in front is for the 307m side tower. The main tower is on the obscured plot to the right.

Building suspension ?

Here is what I have read on this badly translated article:
http://www.szcpost.com/2010/04/shenz...uspension.html

Quote:
Is the future tallest building in Shenzhen, Ping An International Finance Center facing stop-work? Related to those responsible of Ping An Insurance (Group) Company of China reflected that Ping An headquarters building was currently facing suspension.
Any information anybody ?

Yep! There were news all over Shenzhen's papers on 08 April saying the construction *may possibly be put to a halt* due to unknown reasons.

The article: http://city.sz.net.cn/city/2010-04/0...nt_2327174.htm

深圳未来第一高楼平安大楼建设受阻面临停工

南方日报讯 (记者/潘玉蓉)深圳未来第一高楼、平安国际金融中心面临停工?昨日,广东省委副书记、深圳市委书记刘玉浦率队下基层为企业送服务,在与深圳几家知名企业进行的座谈中,中国平安相关负责人反映,平安总部大楼建设中遭遇到阻力,目前面临停工的状态。

中国平安总部大楼平安国际金融中心位于深圳市福田中心区1号地块,在深圳市福华路与益田路交汇处西南角,占地面积为1.89万平方米,由平安旗下子公司平安人寿保险股份有限公司于2007年11月以16.57亿元拍得。大楼于去年8月29日奠基,根据规划,大楼共115层,高度将达到588米。这个高度将超过目前深圳的最高建筑383.95米的“地王大厦”,以及规划中400米高的“京基大厦”,成为深圳第一高楼。大楼计划于2014年竣工。

就平安总部大楼面临停工的原因,记者昨晚联系平安品牌部门人员处,但并未了解到具体细节。但昨天市政府领导人员下基层中各企业反映的情况,随行的有关部门人员给均出了解决办法和初步思路。

据了解,深圳市历届市委市政府都非常重视和支持平安集团的发展。在去年大楼的奠基仪式上,深圳市领导曾经表示各级各部门将会全力以赴地支持、服务好大楼的建设。

在昨日的下基层活动的座谈会上,研祥智能有关负责人反映了其研发中心建设中遇到的实际困难,迈瑞科技公司则希望深圳市加快人才公寓建设。

记者了解到,深圳市委市政府决定从当前开始到5月份,在全市开展“下基层送服务促转变”活动。刘玉浦要求,全市各级领导干部要拿出更多的时间和精力下企业下基层,听企业反映问题,并现场为基层企业排忧解难。根据下“下基层送服务促转变”活动安排,全市几套班子领导每人将到3—5家企业了解情况,预计总共涉及到140多家企业。

And then one day later on 09 April, Ping'an management were asked about it, they said "we are building as normal". The construction management were also approached and asked, they also said "this is going ahead as normal".

提要:备受关注的深圳未来第一高楼又传来新消息。平安集团品牌管理部的相关人士表示,大楼处于“正常建设中”。”  昨日,记者联系上平安集团品牌部的相关负责人,对于平安国际金融中心面临停工的说法,这位负责人表示大楼“正在正常建设中”。

备受关注的深圳未来第一高楼又传来新消息。昨日,有媒体报道,平安总部大楼建设中遭遇阻力,目前面临停工。经探访工地现场,记者发现该楼仍在施工之中。平安集团品牌管理部的相关人士表示,大楼处于“正常建设中”。

  记者随即前往位于中心区的大楼施工现场进行探访。虽然刚下过一场雨,在深圳会展中心西侧,深圳福华路与益田路交会处西南角的大型建筑工地上,施工人员正热火朝天地工作着。“目前正在有计划、有步骤进行作业。”中建一局平安项目部的一位员工表示。

  记者在施工工地看到,该工地的管理颇为严格,出入必须有相关的证件。这里还吸引来不少跑建筑工地的业务员。深圳一家上市公司的销售经理就在施工现场外围等待:“公司是做建筑项目的光纤骨干网络项目的,目前这座大楼还在基建阶段,我们提前做好准备,看看有没有合作的可能。”不过最终他“无功而返”:“负责人都到工地上去了,电话也联系不上,只好留了一些公司的材料,等到明天再来看看了。”

Unspecialized journalists normally suck when covering skyscraper news anyway.

Like the Pentominium in Dubai, we don't know whether or not this will have a spire, so we go for the lower height until it is clear.
