So the picture up there depicts the construction below ground level? Wow, so thats a whole shopping mall below the park?

If only Pudong had that, then there area would have been so much more pleasant

Pudong should turn the Lujiazui park into a supertall cluster

Gosh Guangzhou is becoming nuts. That underground mall will be huge. I have heard about it but didn't expect it to be that big, and not on two floors.

My girlfriend told me today they are about to open a similar one ( underground on 2 floors) called Fashion Mall just under the Tiyu Zhongxin, the sports stadium in Tianhe. This one will go from Tiyu Xi Lu and Tiyu Dong Lu. To let you imagine how huge it will be, they have a project for a cinema down there.

My question is: How are they gonna fill those two monster underground mall?
This is really a mystery. Are they over estimating the needs for shopping space or just in line with the future needs?

Well there are loads of very large underground malls in GZ allready, it might be due to the hot and humid climate that they are loved by shoppers, its always crowded in thoose malls. So I dont think its gonna create an oversupply. Consumer spending is also increasing very fast in China.

Thats what i think

Awesome shot!

I love the Pinnacle's cladding. I wish they'd hurry up with the spire though. Been waiting awhile for this to top out.

The cladding is fantastic! It provides an elegant change of pace to the glass clad towers that surround it. I just love it!

Agreed. Too many new skylines are overly dominated by glass, gets monotonous. This breaks it up and makes the entire skyline look fantastic!

Well seems like I belong to a minority of people not liking the cladding. No problem with the old school look, it's just that the colour is too orange imo. There is another building in Tiyu Dong Lu a couple of blocks away from the centre of Zhujiang New Town that has a very similar cladding but with better colours.

They are also gradually installing the night illuminations, and it is like on most of the other buildings nearby, changing bounty colours. Not the best match with the style of the cladding. I would have liked a classic white lightning way better.
