It's photoshopped because those tall towers in the back don't exist (yet).

Oh dang, 608 meters? That sucks. I loved the design and height. On the other hand, Nexus is 760 meters and has 169 floors... that's going to be an impressive tower.

I dont think the height for this one is final since the design is rather concept. We'll see... In any case, this cluster is going to be peerless for a long time China-wide.

architect claiming 700m again. Again, it is a "structural concept".

Something tells me we haven't seen everything about this one yet, not even the final design. Several developers (Evergrande, China Resources) are on the verge of launching 600m+ projects in town, therefore they are likely to have a height race within the next few years. Hopefully more developers will join this madness, and Shenzhen will ulimately grow a good collection of megatalls spread out all across its endless skyocean.

this seems to confirm 760m (for Caiwuwei Center)! China Gate might still be 608m as well. Certainly above 550m.

Should be. Many of us long for Kingkey to announce a height revision in order to hit back at China Resources. As much as we lust after this height race to go insane we better keep in mind that China Resources is unbeatable as its project is further away from the airport. But there's still some hope Caiwuwei will give it a try.
