I hope they put some kind of provision for a future spire if Ping An could negotiate a deal to get rid of this ridiculous height limit. No plan will be flying within 60 meters of this building unless they're trying to get a really close look. It's almost like a beautiful large chested girl getting a boob reduction....sad.

right... because that's how it works...

anyway, if they lift the limit, the can let this one be, and do a version with a spire on ping-an phase 2.

i would rather them finishing of the top in a nice way. i wouldn't want it to have a weird crown for a decade just for a possibility of regulation changes.

That┤s what I said years ago, Pingan would look fantastic as a twin towers, but I prefer 2 spires or no spires and different cladding

Now it becomes exciting how the changed top will look like.

I'd say make the spire out of something easily breakable (popsicle sticks+glue, newspaper, cardboard...etc) so if a plane hits the spire, spire breaks apart, no damage to plane. Paint it chrome/grey/silver to look match rest of the building.

Every storm would break the spire as well then

2:00 into the video they unlock a chain to get through the hatch to the crane.

If they actually did this, then someone must have given them the combination to the lock.

That makes it smells like a smart marketing ploy to get people outside SSC to take an interest in an unfinished building....

Anyway: God bless GoPro and balls of steel.
