Why can't they really be putting this up in L.A? (that is the city behind the tower, also SG is to the right) L.A. needs this more than Shenzhen.

Well, it is just a box, but the cladding looks really nice. If it will get a good cladding, it might be interesting in reality too.

pretty boring.... and the cladding is hideous... and why did they have to use Los Angeles as the left background? kind of pathetic....

grade: 2 (it would have been 1 if it wasn't for the height )

This building is gorgeous. Nice, clean and slender. I wish this was being built in Austin instead though.

It looks like the demolished WTCs but this one has a strange top and a better cladding.
