I'd rather like to see the cladding finish (granite?) of that bottom part which is still not done.

Yes,, (me as well alheaine),, I wish it was to be taller too, right now PA's , well it's core is at the tip of 1WTC's Spear, or whatever that is on the top. I love rooftop's and I know this will eventually stop at it's roof, then will surpass ST with a spire. I just really wanted this to go higher than ST, then put the needle on it.

We will never have anything like this in the US,, just pencil thin's with tall spire's,,, 1WTC is the most expensive fortress on the planet,, but it had to be done, to deter the evil!

Unique?

Hi everyone - I'm new here and love this forum.

I just wanted to ask you, what's especially unique about this skyscraper?

Technology/build-wise, is it really that special other than height?

Thanks and good day to you all!

Lindsay

It's just the height. The concstruction method isn't new, Shanghai Tower for example also used it. When i remember right Taipei 101 was one of the first supertalls with megacolumns.

Welcome to the forum. I am quite new here myself too... Been here for little over one year now and loving it !

What's unique about Ping An ?... I would say that every tower of this magnitude is unique !

The sheer size of that thing ! And it's a quite unique and good looking design too. A classic to be.
