Design changes this far along would be insane. I don't think that has ever been done this far from topping out. It is probably just stupid rumors.

So as I understand it, after the reinforced/truss belt level that is soon to be built, the outer walls will start to taper towards the spire?

Amazing. What also strikes me is how green this city is.

just curious watching these impressive photos:
what is that strange area of low, flat buildings (??) surrounded by high blocks: direction 5 o'clock from Ping An?

Really impressed by this tower. Whilst other extremely tall buildings going up taper, this one doesn't - just sheer inelegant verticality. It's like an obelisk. I love it.

I don't understand why they didn't continue with silver cladding all the way down. Would have looked better.
