Like how they're mixing old with new... to bad it has strong similarities to another iconic building (like a lot of stuff in china)....

If you're implying the ESB, maybe to a certain extent it looks like this was inspired from. However CCTV Beijing/Jin Mao/SWFC/Shanghai Tower/G TV Tower/West Tower/Pearl River Tower to name a few certainly don't look like they're carbon copies of any 'original' so I dont really see your point about a lot of other 'stuff'.

This seems to have grown a bit from the last update.

This is very likely the final design. Final height unconfirmed, expected around 308m.

Looking at the city on Google Earth definetly gives the impression that your looking at a mini version of Lower Manhattan. In another five years the area is going to look unbelievable.

Design is fine but 308 meters = real bad They already lost Poly.

I sure hope that we start seeing some cladding soon. Right now it looks like a skeleton.

^ I agree!! Alright building but I am not a fan. Most Chinese skyscrapers seem to look like this basic design.
