i start to like the design, its not overdesigned and "cool" like most other big scrapers beeing built now. it has a "technical" look like hancock or sears and looks as tall as it really is. i hate the diamond on top, tough

It is in Xiqing district, near the Construction University, and a giant restaurant called "Green Era", 绿色时代. In other words, in the middle of nowhere.

From today's news, developer will build a swimming pool in the "Diamond", which makes it the highest swimming pool.

Really hope it gets built asap.

I love this huge building anyway?

Any close ups of that diamond with the swimming pool on the top!? I actually seemed to like the original design better than this one.
