Very amazing and entertaining. But a little gaudy/tacky/touristy at the same time.

That is so awesome. Although how were they able to do that? Isn't there some kind of danger of the fireworks shooting into the building?

That can work because the building stands alone. If a cluster of tall buildings ends up being built around it, then it won't be so easy to do that kind of thing.

Great building should have more views for a building that was once the worlds tallest.

I guess it gets overlooked since it's not the tallest anymore. Height aside, I think the overall aesthetics of this one are very nice (It's certainly a much nicer building than the previous record holder the Petronas Towers). I really like that the design has some cultural context and symbolism, and the segmented look is pretty unique. I can see how some might find it a bit tacky though.
