Are those bamboo sticks? They are probably used on highest building yet.

No it's steel pipes. Still pretty flimsy looking for 2000 feet up...

They should install 3m spire Or 2m spire Or 3cm spire Has anyone an idea how much money they saved by cutting the spire? Did they really saved the money? With 660m building would had been Shenzhen as strong skyscraper power as NY. Second tallest building would be interesting promotion for the city... By cutting the spire they lost height but also beautiful design. So the question is - did they really saved some money??

The problem is not money, it's aviation*. The entire deal is quite complicated, different government agencies fighting each other (It dragged from 2009 to 2014), developers try to push their luck (during that entire time, they aimed for 667m) etc. Essentially now the entire region is capped at 600m (which is the reduced height of Canton tower, in that case additional 10 million RMB was spent for the height reduction).


There is a excellent article about it in Chinese.
http://china.caixin.com/2015-01-15/100774923_all.html


* The current flight path in the area is ~900 meter, and if the tower is built more than 600 meter it will render the 600m-900m air space unusable, per regulation it needs to be increased 1200 meter would made the approach too steep for emergency type landings. The developer and the city government argues that a spire 67 meters that pierce into 600m-900m airspace is minimal, and aircraft can easily to be routed to avoid it. However civil aviation did not budge, and 600m limit held.

And what about Greenland centre in Wuhan? They re´s no airport near the construction? And why did the company also reduced the second tower next to Pingan (295m)? Also because of some airport? And the tower is really 599? Some sources say that it is just 589, so there should be 10m spire...

PAFC wanted 667m but cut to down....??!!
SZ government so stupid!!
The current flight from the city to Bao'an airport 25~27km so far!!
from Qianhai Bay to Bao'an airport 12~14km so near
But
The current flight why from BK Dubai to airport Dubai 11~12km??

Jeddah 1000m and Dubai 828m can built more than 600 meter
I'm jealous..... Arabian!!

Thanks for the information - could you be more specific about the insides? We never seem to see the pictures from inside.

No spire, no party. The result is just a coitus interruptus.
