A simple way to make Ping An a Megatall again: Tell this guy to pile up some materials just where he stands. Someone call him!

I was a huge fan of this building but the cladding really didn't live up to potential. I think this is worse than the lack of a spire. It is still an impressive building though, from a size and form point of view.

I do like it when you have a high rise city with a few mega 'spires' towering over the rest.

The original plan was so amazing. Cladding looked excellent, design as well. In 2014 I dreamed about visiting Shenzhen. After disappointment with Pingan I donīt want to visit China at all. Shenzhec could be another New York. Pingan looked 100 times better than 1WTC.

No. But from the hills from the New Territories of Hong Kong.

Is there a recent pic of the plot from above, with the base and the mall?

I think the cladding really lacks any bit of shine to it like in the original plans. The building is ofcourse massive and quite impressive but the finish looks like a bit of dissapointment. I honestly have come to believe more than the lack of spire it is the lack of cladding that has let this project down a few notches.

If one thing they change I like, is that they scraped that golden, bling-bling original cladding.
