Activity in this thread decreased to like 20% of previous levels as soon as the height went below 600m and is now at the same level as the Goldin Finance 117 thread. I think that is very interesting from a psychological perspective. How much of a difference "magic numbers" can make.

-edit- Started a thread about it.

So, for everyone who's still wondering whether this will get a spire or not, don't miss this very helpfull and explaining CTBUH video with magnificent render shots of the structure and projections on the use of this building in the near future! It's dating just a few months back and I haven't seen somebody posting this, so let me do this for you, I just hope I don't waste your time if you already watched and all know about it.

It looks so good ! I wish that it's true...

from the video i would say there's no change from the original plans yet. But nevertheless i don't have much hopes for a spire.

Thanks for that video. The Tower clearly looks better with the Spire but ever without it, it's still a great piece of Architecture.

Nice Video, but surely from an engineering standpoint, there is no way they can add a spire now even if they got permission to. The crane is not big enough for one, and there looks like there is no support structure to hold a 60m high 'spire'.

I'm still really disappointed by how this building has turned out, probably the first time i've said that about a building in years!

Maybe they are waiting for the end of construction for puting an eventual spire, due to height restrictions or something like that ? It reminds me Chrysler Building's spire.

Great video. It would be architectural murder if they leave the spire out.

Yes, I am getting more used to it now without a spire. That last shot surprised me - Shenzhen has some pretty bad traffic jams.
