It would be classified as a new city center, but I guess you could also call it a new CBD, its official title will be Goldin Metropolitan, it will be completed in phases, with the majority to be completed in 2015. It is all being designed by the same architectural firm.

The smaller office building, named the Mountain tower along with Goldin 117 are slated for completion in 2015 as well.

@ KillerZavatar, indeed there will be twin towers that will act as the gateway to the new city center. They will rise 223 m each. They are slated for completion in 2014, but that seems a little too close. Is there a thread for them? I've never seen one before.

EDIT: I just found the thread for the twin towers, but from the latest update in May, they are still doing preparation works, piling. So I doubt they will be complete in 2014.

this is moving really fast. I must say, I am impressed with the speed of the construction.
I still can't get my eyes of that diamond at the top

Then it would be 599.6 meters. But it's only semantics.

This shares many structural similarities to Ping-An.

It does llok quite similar to Ping An,, but I just love the hell out of this bldg,, The diamond on top needs to be constructed however,, I think the jewel on top is as necessary as the crown on ST..Cant wait to see how they "handle" construction of the jewel.. The four fins "look" doesnt do this justice.
