Weird?I think the design's innovative and the tower even won some prizes on architecture in China.

Strange, I always thought it was 225m - and that's the height that CTBUH have for it, too:

I also heard some people call it the "Motorola" building

Weird doesn't necessarily have to mean it's ugly. And I was only referring to the upper part which is wider than the part below it, which is weird because most towers don't have this. So you could also interprete weird as original.

The Merchant's Bank Building is, personally, one of my favorite buildings in Shenzhen (two others being the New World Center and 财富大厦). I think many people in Shenzhen would say the same.

This is why even though I like the design of the East Pacific Center, I feel its close distance to the Merchant's Bank Building will dominate the Che Gong Miao Skyline in a bad way. If East Pacific Center was just off of the Shennan Ave axis, or perhaps farther down the road in Zhuzilin, I would be much more excited about this project. Unfortunately, where it stand now, I think Che Gong Miao is getting subtraction by addition.

i guess so from a building perspective, (IMO i think they will complement each other) but from a skyline perspective it better to have a more cohesive skyline which is an issue with Shenzhen. Buildings like the Merchant's Bank Building, Kingkey 100, and Shin Heng Sq dominate the skyline way too much. I think the East Pacific Center and a bunch of other 200m+ buildings will remedy this.
