With 9 supertalls and beautiful 660m building, Shenzhen would be more attractive than SH or NY, we all expected that Shenzhen will be Chinaīs No.1 skyscrapercity. OK, Iīll put up with it - shittower stands...

Also the recent rule of law push and anti-corruption campaign, which force the civil aviation bureau to play by book and strictly interpreted the 300 meter air safety zone. Had this been five years ago, an exception would have being made either by the prestige of the project itself or the deep pockets of the developers. They would then either cross-fingers that 230m is enough for safety or reroute air traffic control in area to accommodate the violation.

I feel a bit ashamed that I do not love this tower....maybe it's because I had expectations. Hopefully one day I'll love it.

Nothing is lost Shenzhen still has more supertalls UC, prep or proposed than any other city in China (counting proposals also in the world if I'm not mistaken). Shenzhen Bay Supercity, Baishizhou redevelopment, Future City tower all could end up with 600m hight (even with the airport) and Platinum Hotel in Luhou would really be outside the flight paths and could be much higher. So I'm still very optimistic about Shenzhens skyscraper future

Lol, yeah, because they cancelled the spire of a tower obviously Shenzhen's skyscraper future is totally lost.

Spire is one thing, but the cladding sucks as much. Platinum hotel is just proposed and it will probably never be build, maybe in 2040. Itīs design is mush much worse than Pinganīs Incomparable with SH tower. They should build Pingan rather on the moon, with original design

They should save the project, with something very impressive on the top of the building. Someting like in case of Zhongan center. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...hp?p=118720101
The "golden ball" looks rather impressive - Zhongan doesnīt need any spire, because when you look at Zhongan, the first thing that interests you will be probably the golden ball, not the spire. If Zhongan will have in the end 450m, I wonīt care... Zhongan would look majestic and maybe better without spire, but it isnīt case of Pingan.

Yes... is a world wide conspiracy... Illuminati... HELP !

Agreed.. gold and purple? Wtf? I was so glad it was changed to something much classier.

As for the spire, I never liked it because to me looked like an effortless way to boost the height of the building. It looked too simple.

Imo, putting a spire on pingan would make the tower, in a distant view, look like a copy version of empire state building or jinmao. And that might be one of the reasons why the investors dont want the spire.

the spire was removed because the government didn't allow it to happen. It's in an airport path and with anti-corruption laws being inforced intensely it was the wrong time to ask for exceptions, so it had to be changed last minute.

The design of that tower doesn't have sense without the spire!

But with a spire, pingan would somehow look like a copycat and an iconic tower should not be so

Just because of a spire a tower isn't a copy of another tower. I miss the spire!

I dont think that the investors/ owners have zero control on the final design of the building.

Usually the design of a building must be approved by relevent authorities before the the construction is started. If the owners really want their baby to have a spire when the air regulations put a 600m limit, they would ask the architect to make a 540 m tower design plus a 60m spire at the beginning. The spire plan was just recently cancelled it mean that it was optional to the owners, not a commitment

Well, spireless pingan seems to be an unhappy ending to many fans but imo it is not the end of the world. it may look like a simple monument but it is impressive.

A simple and powerful obelisk make place de la concorde in paris twice more beautiful. In this case, lets say pingan is a powerful obelisk to shengzen city

Seems like some corruption in the relevant government departments would be welcomed by many forumers here

Just like many don't have problems with the abuse of workers in Dubai.
