I think this is true but the hight decreasing isn't officially yet. But everything seems that 600m will be the final hight.

That is an impressive skyline for a lesser known city.

How many occupied and/or mechanical floors will be lost?

It looks pretty clear that it is more than just the spire being shortened or cut off.

Honestly, in that above render it looks identical to the CTBUH sketch just manually squished down out of proportion.

This picture doesn't make sense. Someone must have made it, who heard about the height decrease, but not about the spire being cut. What that diagram claims is impossible, since the buildings roof is already built to 588m, so please disregard that diagram as such.

Indeed, the diagram is definitely wrong. The core already topped out at 555m, more than 1WTC.

I think it just looks tall without any real character as the cladding is bit bland. Its like having a Ferrari 458 which is off-white and missing the ferrari logo. It might be a good engineering marvel and fantastic piece of machinery still somehow does not have the same charm or attraction

I won't judge before this tower is complete. I like it, but as some people said something is missing. The faccade is unique but a little bit 80 years style imo. So wait till it's finished.

Thank you very much for the reply. Then if so the antenna will have "only" 12 meters right? Might be "too" small ......That's what many say until it is finished will not be if it is good or not. With or without antenna, the truth is spectacular

Hey guys,

I just made a April update on the Ping An Finance Center and would like to specifically thank all the photographers from this thread for their incredible shots. Also would anyone know when we find out if Ping An keeps a spire or not? I promise the video wont disappoint

I post monthly updates

The glass would have never been gold. Just the columns
