Well, that is something of a disappointment.
However, it could still end up looking fairly decent, so I won't pass judgement on it until they have finished the execution of the top.

Whether this breaks the 600m barrier or not, its height, in comparison with its surroundings, will vault Shenzhen into the top three skylines in China, imo.

Looks like Shanghai is still king! I smell sabotage...

But seriously, completely fine with no spire. Give it time folks, it will all grow on you.

Are you serious. It is the worst of all possible options. Even a simple pyramid had been better. This thing on top is a spire holder without a spire to hold, taunting us spire lovers even more.

Time will make me care less, until the memory of what could've been will fade out. But in no way will this disgrace ever grow on me.

This supertall is fantastic. The way some on here are whinging because they aren't putting on a glorified Car Aerial is most amusing.

Let's take something you love and take away an important part of it. Got a car? Let's remove a door. Got a flat? Let's remove a window. How amusing would that be to you?

Exactly. For some strange reason, many think the spire was (is?) an unnecessary appendix. If it had no meaning in the general design, they would not have bothered adding it in the first place, methinks. We are not talking amateur architects here.

Hope we'll get some official news soon about the final height.

Weird and potentially dangerous - I think it would have needed to be lit up by lights from the bottom of the spire, or else some bright lights every so often up the spire, with a bright one at the very top.

I think with the new design, they could improve the look of the top with some kind of unusual lighting of that little pyramid that will now cap it off.

The original design now looks to me like some vision, not relevant proposed project. From the pictures I really canīt see any way how to light up the spire, or how to put up some light on the very top. From pictures weīve ever seen we canīt see any way how to solve night performance. But if you take a look at 1WTC or Empire, these buildings have very impressive spires at night, so if Pingan with spire wouldnīt be just a big crap, it must be comparable. The original project was just a ill-conceived vision, letīs hope night performance of the top will save it all...

Beautiful skyscraper. However, the original gold and spire version was better, much bold and smt everyone who have seen it would remember...

Sorry, but the crane simulating what a small spire would look like in those pictures above is really awesome. It completes the building, in my opinion.

I love this tower, I remember when I was skeptical of the design but I have grown to love the new design.

It would have been better with the spire, that's for sure.

Here would be a spire, but only in case that the design had been completely different, because with this design thereīs no way how to light up the spire
