Wow can that urban plan be more spread out? Looks like Moscow.

Not too difficult. I have completed the main structure inside the cladding, so I basically have to adjust the structure to the correct height, and add any extra completed floors to update it. I have no idea how often I will update it, maybe every couple of months or so? I will probably start Shanghai Tower today, the structure will be fairly easy, but the cladding will be horrible to do! At least it has some consistency (the cladding rotates the same amount each time, and just gets a bit smaller)

Gf's little brother building seems to be taller than the main attraction at this particular time. That should change quite soon, want to see this pass Ping An, probably not a chance in hell at this point..

Ping An is already 246m tall, and will most probably touch 300m by the end of december. How will this one catch up with Ping An?

I like this tower. Minus the diamond, that was unnecessary.

It won't, just wishing, I love this bldg, My opinion, it beats Ping An in every way, except maybe the vintage aspect. Looks similar to the design of ESB and Chrysler. And roof height will be 2nd in world depending on the crown of ST. I can't say anything bad about ST, it's my #1, followed closley by this and then Lotte. Can't really say anything bad of Ping An either, just personal opinion.

By the way is the sister tower higher at this point? Barbaric would definitely know.

i like ping an most of the ones you mentioned, but all these buildings are so damn amazing naming any building a favorite kind of doesn't do other buildings justice, because they are all so amazing. it is nice to be a skyscraperlover in these days

Just hard to fathom, so many incredible bldgs taking shape in this Country. Just makes me want to visit this country, probably would take a year to tour and appreciate it all, gotta say, I, as an American, wish we could have just a 1/4 of these super talls, and perhaps, just a planned Mega-tall, " hell even in Billings, Montana", just to say we have a Megatall, in the "often used title,,, "greatest" country in the World."
