Wuhan Greenland Center is projected to be completed in 2018. The video shows buildings in 2016.

also put a spire on top of that flat foof, and would be WTC on steroids.

probably I'm the only one that did not liked the spire from the start, and was glad when they got rid of it.

we want taller and taller buildings, then complain that they make the other ones look too small...

good thing they did not finish Pentominium... would had dwarfed all 400m towers in Dubai Marina and look like they are much shorter.

That is not what I mean, I just think a 450m+ building in the near would make Futian CBD's skyline a lot better, because Ping An needs to be balanced out a bit. It is kind of like the same problem Taipei's skyline has with Taipei 101, of course not that dramatic. But of course it is better to have a 600m building and 20 200m+ buildings in the skyline then just the 200m+ buildings, but much better would be the 200m+, the 600m and a few buildings between that heights and this is much more important for the look of Futian CBD than the spire, in my opinion.

Ping An is still getting a 295m side tower and Shenzhen Center is very close as well with 375m. This should help a little

Also there are still 2 supertall plots without a serious proposal in the CBD near Ping An and also the village redevelopment south of the conference center could have two supertalls. this will balance out Ping An quite well.

Also the second half of the GanXia village that failed to get redeveloped in the first round (which lead to Shenzhen Center i.a.) should be finally redeveloped in the future.

With or without the spire, this is a beautiful building.
