Looks like they've been very faithful to the original rendering.

It's just an ad for an online payment service.

I wasn't too excited when I heard about this tower. I was just like "oh another tall building in Shenzhen" But now that it is getting close to being topped out I love it. I actually like it without the spire, it looks like a rocketship.

I'm no engineer, so I'd like to hear from one - aren't those eight double beams excessive if they're not intended to support a spire of some kind? Wouldn't single beams (with girders connecting them at the top) be enough if they were just to support a roof? Yeah, I know, "wait and see". But where's the fun then?

You should look at the KK 100 topping out:

To see what might or might not be considered excessive.

One man's guess, here...

Assuming the engineers for the project haven't already made accomodations for the redesigned top, my guess is the structural aspect of the beams has to with literally capping off the structure below. In other words it plays a part in retaining the rigidity of the whole form , especially against wind sheer, and isn't merely there to support the roofing. The connections made by these beams might likely aid in balancing the distribution of the forces involved, not unlike how roof trusses or tension lines must be overly taut so as not to disrupt the performance of the vertical components.

Which is all a way of saying "Trust the designers."

I trust them totally. I'd just like to anticipate their final plans.

Nice shot - in the earliest pictures of the construction, that building on the right was where someone was taking pictures, looking down into the circular hole, with the Coco Park mall just beyond it. So the building on the right towered over the Ping An 3 years ago or so, and now Ping An towers over it by about the same margin, I'd say.

I have a terrible feeling that the building will not come to a point and just have a flat roof... Let's hope that doesn't happen.

Nice documentary, the original plan was perfect, I couldn´t believe that Chinese company is able to build as cool skyscraper as Gensler. Pity it failed.
