Ar those fish ponds or rice fields?
I included the entire pearl river delta. Shenzhen daily estimated that there were 15 million people in Shenzhen in 2012. 15million+ more in Guangzhou and 8-10 million in Donguan,7million+ in Foshan and we get almost a 50million contiguous urban area,much more if we include urban parts of Huizhou and Hong kong. 60 million is the lowest estimate

Taken from me last Sunday. I had not access to photobucket, nor Google Plus nor even this forum, so I have to wait to come back home to publish.

Some more pictures from this building. All of them are mine, taken on Sunday 14th.

All were taken with a Nexus 5 mobile. The fisheye ones were made using the panorama maker app built in the device.

The "edge" is cladded with black glass, the supercolums with aluminium and some black gridded panels.
It looks exactly like in the render to me. Expect for that it's a nighttime render vs a daylight picture.

Probably the minor holes in the black grid cladding will be closed in the future.

edit: The render was not official, so my statement here is moot

So the crown will still surprise us, whatever it'll look like

I think I wrote before that is a product of my imagination and NOT an official render.

I made that version after they announced they removed the spire, how I hoped to turn out in the end. so is not the developers version, is just mine. of course it does not match the actual crown, just hope it will be close.

Of course in my "fantasy version" the tip of the crown is almost all glass, like a glass pyramid, but I doubt it will be like this.

Spire or no spire, that's the question...
I think with both variants it will be an outstanding supertall with a unique shape and faccade and an also good location. In a few weeks we will see the design of the top and if they will add a spire.
