This building definitely does NOT have 89 floors though. . .

Ah, didn't notice you changed it. Thanks.

I'm not sure about the floor height though. Should be investigated further. z0rg at SSC should be consulted, as he is our only Western "know it all" guy on Chinese projects.

Right on. . . the floor count isn't super important, but in this case I suspect it's somewhere between 66 and 88 floors. . .

Great design!
It's unbeliveable how projects as this are growing up in China without me even knowing about them.

Wow. Thanks for the update, malec.
It's totally what the Trump Chicago would have wanted to be.

Yeah, this building is great. Awesome cladding btw. They need something like this in Europe. Great spire too, looks better than what I've seen of Trump Chicago.

Sick spire!
This building turned out way better than I thought. I'll have to take the two hour trip to check it out one of these days.

Like muppet said, it reminds me of scales like you would find on a Dragon (if Dragons existed).
