I had no idea this was so far along. Shame that those diamonds are making it into the actual project; I can't be the only one who finds them amazingly tacky.

These diamonds are really kitsch! Because of that, I don't like the crown of this tower... Truly a shame.

Diamonds on top a tower. Is there anything more kitsch?

The original design was so much better, modern, and elegant without the diamond on top.

Towers in Tianjin do not seem to hurry with the cladding.

I'm guessing that this enormous thing must have been assembled on the spot. It can not possible have been transported (Manchurian?)

If this is revealed because the top bosses want to see the thing and take it in for more than a year before it is installed. I understand....

Bur could someone please make them look at ThayOneGuy's post before they make up their minds...........

Please.

Fact is that a lot of Chinese people love this kind of kitch. I bet a lot of people want to take a selfie with this tower.

It's not a diamond. It's a transparent flying saucer. Happy now?

Diamond looks Very good on top! the previous design on top "That 1 guy" looks like 4 shark fins.
