maybe because this the main tower connects to the smaller one over the street.

See the render again.

Maybe it's for construction work on the GZ-SZ-HK high speed rail, it is directly underneath that road.


10 May, circle for the main tower starts!

They are SO fast! That's incredible!
End of the week the rebar circle will probably be completed and next week the concrete will be poured and dry.

More from Thornton Tomasetti. Again they use the 648m height.


Ping An International
Finance Center
Shenzhen, PRC
Our engineering team, led by Managing Principal
Dennis Poon, is using Performance Based Design
(PBD) methodologies to design this new office
tower, set to be the tallest in China at 648 meters.
Because supertall structures behave differently
than the shorter buildings that are the basis for
standard building codes, PBD – where advanced
analysis technology allows engineers to design a
structure according to how it reacts to various
conditions – allows our designers to create
buildings that maximize both safety and efficiency.
The selected structural system consists of a
concrete core with steel outriggers connecting to
eight super-columns. The project also includes an
11-story steel-framed podium with high-end
shopping arcades, restaurants and rooftop cafés.
Owner: Ping An Life Insurance Company of China, Ltd.
Client/Architect: Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates
Completion Date: 2014

Heh i thought just the opposite! I often like when a building can disguise that it's made up of small pieces.

This will be great. The middle section is straight but in all renders it gives the illusion of tapering outwards, due to the base and top's inward tapering. I really hope this will effect will happen in reality too, beautiful
