I think the spire could be replaced by a very good nice crown....

I think if they do a "transparent" glass crown would do the trick.



Last portion of the building is "transparent" already, so I only edited the top "filled" part where spire begin.

Great work!
That's my kind of style!
Perhaps they do it so!?

Without the spire the tower signifies nothing for me.
Its not just the strucutre even the vertical lines on the facade all converge to a point to a spire.

Infact i am not a big fan of spires and frankly this was the only tower which was designed for a spire with perfection. Now all the converging vertical threads on the facade diminish in what feels like a strange manner

They should build this tower to its full height - higher than Shanghai Tower, then Shanghai will have the motivation to build a new taller building.

Seriously, there is nothing to watch in Shanghai construction anymore after the Shanghai tower is done, while the rest of the world (NYC, Beijing, Thailand) continues to have exciting projects to watch. Shanghai really needs a new Super tall.

All the discussion is valid IF height restriction to 600m will be imposed.

At 600m they only have 2 options, remove the spire or keep the spire and make the main tower 60m shorter. (or something like -50m from main tower and -10m from spire)

That spireless design doesn't look good at all. I don't really like it.

Is it me or are the vertical lines on the facade just at one side of the tower on the picture. The right side doesn't have them...

It may be too late for that latter option already, fortunately.

Suzhou have one under construction yes.

But by "under way" I mean Pro-Prep-UC not only UC. (and that they have also in Shenzen and other cities)

So for me anyway, the "I need to have it bigger than yours" pissing contest mentality don't fly. I just don't buy the "conspiracy" that they might impose some height limitations so this tower won't be higher than Shanghai Tower, especially since in Suzhou in under construction a much higher building, plus many other proposals (including in Shenzen) higher than Shanghai Tower.

But everyone have the right to believe what they please.

No, you are totally right... how can I not see that...

Is a clear decision by Communist Party from China, so No tower will be higher than Shanghai Tower for the next 5 years...
