Looks more Asian like a pagoda??? To me, it looks more like the Washington Monument in D.C., USA.

Yes, that's advertisement for the construction firm and the building itself.

Aesthetically speaking, to me, this tower w/o spire looks better, more integrated as a whole. In mainland China, very few supertalls out-run counterparts in height by spire.

I believe, more Chinese skyscrapers will be on the list of the tallest buildings if roof
elevation is ONLY counted.

That last picture demonstrates it's a perfect finish. Beautiful angles.

It must be a great pleasure to climb onto the top of this supertall to have a panoramic view of the whole city. One day, it will come true.

After watching this video about Ping'An Tower, I change my mind: the tower looks sexier
with the spire for sure.

What is "PAFC" and why does the whole city of Shenzen have to look at it? Surely it's time to remove those tacky advertisements from this tower.

PAFC stands for 'Ping An Financial Center' which is not the ads but the name of the tower.

It looks like the mountain in the background of Shenzhen is much taller than this tower, is that true? Anyone know it's height?
