topped out, as in, it's reached its full height and no more floors or feet will be added to the structure.

Height & Size

While it is a tall building at over 1600ft - it hides its height very well - this is because of the width of the building - which hides its dimensions vey well. as an example, the World Trade centre was 1362ft tall by 209ft wide and it looked more imposing and the height was more apparent. Never the less this building is very good and will be in my Top 20 Skyscrapers in the world!

This building needs to be featured in a movie and it will definately become popular and iconic. looks like Shangai & Guanzou in China will take the centre stage with their awesome buildings as construction of current and future buildings will show how strong China is as a fture leader in commerce!

Those lights coming off the building kind of remind me of the lights that would come of the original World Trade Center before September 11th.

This thing is gorgeous. How did I not notice any mention of it until just now?

I remember visiting Hong Kong as a kid years and years ago. When I was there, the Bank of China Tower absolutely dominated the skyline.

This one was off the radar for a while, but is certainly one of the better additions. I really don't know much about it, but if its completed we can move it so someone can create the new thread.
