Aaannyways when it was first announced I wasn't too excited about Ping An, but I'm loving it now. It absolutely dominates it's surroundings. Hopefully other super talls will be built close by in the future to balance it out a bit though.

The vertical lines on the cladding make this look particularly epic! At this point I'll be fine with no spire but of course would prefer it.

Therefor I'm glad about the Ping An 2 proposal, that will balance the skyline a little bit out.

Maybe a little, but since Pingan 2 isn't even planned to be a supertall, I don't think it will do much to balance Pingan IFC's dominance.
