IMO it dwarfed the current skyline..... They need another 450m+ in Futian CBD, after that it will fit good, alone it is just too high, and the current skyline can't balance it.

I agree, at least for the neighborhood around Ping An.
Shame that the secundary tower isn't 450 meter.

It is only a few kilometres (or even less) away from it....

Amazing how tall and slender it already is. Still over 100 meter to go though.

I guess when people say Hong Kong they mean HK Island. Yes it would look good there. HK needs a new mega-landmark in Central.

It's already U/C for 3 1/2 years (since ~March 2011 when the piling works started). It went at slow-to-moderate pace until it was several floors above ground.

Yeah, but at least the last 200-250m have risen really quickly

This is the coolest tower so far in this century, no doubt.

I already saw the present situation of this tower from HK and from Luohu (you can see it right along Shennan Boulevard from elevated walkways... What a perspective!). And tomorrow I'll go to have a closeup look at the beast. It looks an absolute monster in the pictures. I know buildings like this tend to look even more monster in reality.
