Could it be that they put the top on hold for as long as possible to still try and get the permit for the spire before it's too late and they finished off without it. Looks like to me that they still can go both ways from here on.

Sorry for the poor quality photo. But I was so excited when i saw it when i was in Lantau Island, Hong Kong in this afternoon. At first i couldn't believe that it is indeed Ping An FC...

Wow, it would be the same distance from my home to the side Brussels. I can compare it to seeing the Atomium from my attic window , which is impossible. This only gives me a chilling raw feeling of how big this structure is.

Even more amazingly, you could see this building from a distance of 87 km if the air was clear enough, and assuming nothing is blocking your line of sight.

From far away it is certainly a cyberpunklooking city, but when you look at pictures from streetlevel it isn't really because of too many green space and too less density in my opinion. Never saw pictures of this urban villages through, they could be impressivly cyberpunk. Also they could use a bit more digital or neon advertisment... For me Tokyo and Shanghai are the most cyberpunk cities at the moment. But 178 200m+ skyscrapers in the near future, what an impressive number :O I just hope they are also getting a few more 400m+ skyscrapers under construction in the near future

Such an impressive skyline

But, isn't it a bit dangerous to build all those skyscrapers?
I heard that there is some kind of real estate crisis in China currently...

usually the super tall towers can get easy financing in the lead up to the bubble, but end up getting completed right about the time the bubble pops.

Luckily, shenzheners are too cultured to let themselves get dragged into some kind of gloomy anti-utopia.
