The structure at the top seems to be crystalline.
That may make it well-known.

They've started to clad the bottom of the tower. I wish I had something positive to say, but I don't. It's a brown/beige colour. It looks pretty bad to be honest.
I'll try and take some pictures of it soon.

I'm not gonna judge it until they've clad a larger part of the building. It might come out OK!

Looks like Willy Wonka is building this. I'll wait till the end to bestow final judgment--if you look closely at the rendering however, this is pretty much the same color that they show us...

I had the impression that it was going to be more of a metallic gray colour applied to the cladding with a yellowish tint on the windows.
I just hate brown/beige. Vancouver made me hate that colour.

This may sound odd, but this tower in particular strikes me as having one of the most Western-looking designs I've seen; it looks like something that could be built in an American city. This is as opposed to Eastern-looking, which is the look of most of the buildings built in Shanghai today, as well as elsewhere in China.

Great shot, bro. That was a wild night weather-wise.
