Okay I'm working on a diagram of this building but does anyone know if this building keep the consistent shape to the top like a rectangle or if it tapers towards the top? So like the first one or second one...

I don't know, I think it doesn't taper, but you might want to check on the first page.

The tower is located in Tianjin, China,and will include class-A office spaces, a 6-star hotel and ancillary facilities with a gross floor area of approximately 370,000m2. The architectural height is approximately 597m with 117 stories (total of 126 structural stories).The project is financed by Goldin Properties Holdings Limited.
The mega tower has a square plan which reduces in size throughout the height and follows a tapered shape in elevation. The plan dimension is approximately 65m x 65m at the ground level and gradually reduces to 45m x 45m at the roof level.
Similar like WTC 1 . Looks more wide at the ground level?

And to answer everybody's question, I added my Ping'An diagram for comparison. Ping'An is wider than Goldin 117.
