Damn Kanye, that photo is Gold,, NEW wallpaper..
What a GEM, Pun intended. Best building in progress.
It would be very welcome for Kanto to chart GF, ST and Ping An. He's not very active rite now. Too bad Lotte Tower doesn't climb like the prior.

404m,so approximately 2/3 of the way up. This is going to look absurdly tall because there is next to no other buildings above 200m in the immediate proximity of the tower

Only 2/3 of the way?? It's going to be just so dominant, so "alone" it will look much bigger than Burj compared to it's neighbors..
Cladding is sweet.

The cladding looks good on the shorter tower as well.

I think the shorter tower is the Parking garage for the main attraction. Just kidding obviously. it looks like a parking garage in comparion to massive tower's in the states..
Oh wait,, there is nothing comparable to this in the US.

This thing is just a behemoth. Talk about massive...I know ST and PA edge it out in height but the thick concrete corners and minimal taper/uniform facade give this one a powerful, monolithic feel especially in its surrounding context.

I was never a big fan of the renders and still think in the renderings the top is cheesy...and it lacks the "futuristic" sculptural qualities of ST...but upon actual examination - I think the cladding is terrific...classy and subdued and I prefer it greatly over PA.

And who knows, the top may follow this trend and up being a lot better in reality than in the renders.

I think You're right BKarch,, it's going to look massive,, when compared to it's neighbor's,, as opposed to PA and ST...
It will look like the Eiffel tower, (in comparison), in the early 1900's.
I am just "in love" with this tower,,, it, is incredible,, it's massive, and "it seem's like, well it has no business in this area" Eiffel tower reference again..
