This skyscraper probably will have the most verticality in the world once it's finished. The view from the base must makes it seem so much taller due to the lines.

the tower is also straight up to the top and not slated like goldin finance. from some angles on the ground you will be able to look up the wall up to the top without any setback nor angle.

except for the setbacks. The lines have definitely some similarities.

WHOOOAA!! That is a sick photo OrangeBoy, really shows it's neck and neck with IFC, I thought it was still a good 50meters short, that shot puts it into perspective.

Also somebody had mentioned on another thread, the Canton Tower has the highest obsevatory in the World?

Haha that was me, and yes I believe it does with an open-air observation platform at 488m. Soon to be overtaken by the Shanghai Tower's one though.
