Totally agree. In its current state, this tower is impressive -- it's clean and imposing, the world's tallest box. The diamond will wreck it.

I'm hoping that the difficulty they're having getting this project over the finish line forces a radical simplification at the top; a clean parapet or square crown would be leagues better than the inelegant "crown jewel."

The funny thing is I think the building would be that much better with the jewel at the top. It would be something unique. There would be more than just sheer height to define the tower. If the crown jewel was done properly so it didn't look cheap it would add character to the otherwise fairly simple design.

I really dig this building. It does remind me a bit of an inverted beer tap; and there's nothing wrong with that.

I totally agree. The foofaraw on the top is the most futile.

LOL this was unexpected and hilarious

But yeah it doesn't need that diamond on top. It would be expected in some place like Uzbekistan or such but not in Tianjin in 2017. I say leave it plain as it is. It will still be a very imposing tower.

Yes, especially closely it reminds us about the early proposals of Akhmat tower in Grozny, Chechnya (temporarily occupied by Russian invasion).

I just said my opinion and I have right to have my opinion. Most people here prefer the diamond version, it really isnīt only me... But many people here like boxes, boxes, and other boxes... Cheaper, smaller and looking one like other... OK, thatīs your opinion and I respect it, but please, protect your family from having sex with pigs

If this tower will turned out like Pingan, all hidden China haters here will celebrate Christmas. But so many project in China were simplifyed, reduced and cheapered, so this pointless building, standing in the middle of nowhere, where "nobody" will travel to see it, is just one building in a sea of others. If you build a project so separated, you should make it really impressive, because tourists will not spend much time for travelling somewhere where they can see high box. The tower will be interesting, but place where it stands and simplifyed design will make the project much leas interesting than it would have to be. If this tower had stand not fare away from CTF Tianjin, with original design, one of the best worldīs skylines would stand. This is true even when you write something else in your strong effort to argue with me. You know this is true, and everyone who will think about it will always know that this is true, you may say it isnīt, but chatting stupidities is all you can do about it, truth is truth and thereīs nothing to be done about it...

The situation is not great admittedly. It won't be a truly outstanding and quality design like Shanghai Tower or CTF Guangzhou. Or even Shenzhen Ping An. Only that there is an opportunity to make it less bad by NOT building that horrendous 'diamond' on top and not making it look like somewhere in Central Asia.

That's a very wrong phrasing in that poll. It's not that "anything else will be worse/better". Pansori was saying that particularly this diamond is making it worse. This detail is unsuitable here because it is architecturally wrong. It's not supposed to be on top of a building like this, because of a number of reasons. That's why it can't even be voted 'pro' or 'contra'.

I must disagree, the diamond will make it much better. If you think that I asked bad questions, than make your pool and ask questions which you want to know. Admins deleted the pool because they want here only their opinions to be shared. So Iīd like to thank to the 6 people who was able to vote before the link was deleted, 4 of them voted that they prefer diamond, I didnīt voted.
The question was - Goldin Finance 117 with or without diamond? And possible answers were - Certainly with the diamond, anything else would be worse. or Certainly without diamond, anything else will be better. Fans of diamond voted diamond, haters of diamond voted against diamond, itīs quite simple. Anyone of you can make his oven pool and ask anything you want. I will be voting!

Well.. I like it as it is too and I am not talking about being half way "cladded" (don't know if this is a word xD).. just a massive straight box. So if they ended up scraping the diamond idea.. it wouldn't be a major blow. But I am also intrigued to see how this thing will look like if they idd end up putting a "stone" on top of that.

I like the diamond, I think it looks too generic and simplistic without that diamond.
