Wow. MARVELOUS!

And by the way, this thing looks EXACTLY like Ping An did before. Gonna rise fast! Soon, it'll be a wonderful almost-megatall.

Speaking of megtalls, maybe it's time for a megatall forum. That way I can separate the big projects from the random Chinese boxy glass facaded 300 m buildings.

PA also beat ST with the spire. But I'm not really fond of GF 117, so I'm okay with that.

But could you imagine PA without its spire? It'll look awkward. I believe that spires should be counted.

Of course the spire of PA counts.

The core is two mech floors above the steel, the steel should speed up.

The steel looks a little like wood. Why? I'm not sure, but I think it's film and under it is red steel?

I wonder if people can really figure out that there is a diamond crown at the top of the building. It seems it can be only seen from afar.

The spire of Ping An is an integral part of its design, it's not like 1 WTC which added an additional fake spire to increase height. Ping An's spire is legitimate like Chrysler Building and without the spire it would look horrible.

Hey folks, may I take a bit of your time? Today a forumer noticed that the world's top diagram that I recently posted in this thread lacks the names of the people who originaly drawed the diagram's buildings on SSP. These people deserve the credit for their hard work because without them and without their talent, none of my diagrams would exist. I originaly cut most of the information below the buildings out because I wanted to include Burj Khalifa 'til the top within one screenshot. However, I should have noticed this so it was my mistake, I am responsible for it and therefore I would like to deeply apologize.

Thank you for your time
Kanto
