Wuhan Greenland Center will also be taller than Shanghai Tower.

I'm not sure if I buy this "not to be higher than Shanghai Tower" thing. It's been pretty clear for many years how tall this tower is supposed to be. If any higher-ups wanted to curb the height of Ping An IFC as not to steal the glory from Shanghai, they could have done so in the concept phase. Why wait until now?

Then again, that is also true for many other explanations. I guess the routines at the airport could have changed, or stricter laws could be put into place, which means the conditions have changed during this tower's construction to such a degree that the shortening of the tower would have had to happen now.

This is strong reason, why they have to build the spire!

It's also interesting how great the difference in floor space is.
Shanghai Tower has almost 120.000m2 more space, thats a huge difference to Ping An.

If they take out the spire it won't be taller than the Shanghai Tower. I don't think they will go for that.

I'm not a spire fan either, as Highcliff suggests a nice crown could be built, and in instances of "perfect spires" only 2 come to mind Jin Mao, and Chrysler
But my biggest concern is,, shouldn't everybody have been on the same page before actually starting this project? That's where I don't understand how this could happen.
The city is just realizing this was supposed to be 600+? Help me understand how this could happen. I'm not saying NY is better, but this would never happen in NY.

Interesting to see the supercolumns have dwindled to almost nothing at the top now.
