A straight building with that height would be a real milestone!
Its highest occupied floor would probably be 100meters higher than the one of Burj Khalifa (which is 588m)

yeah Koops is a genius, he uploaded this building, the Hua's megatall in Wuhan and Baishizhou Towers as well.

he also made it 750m tall, which was my estimate on SSP, hopefully not too far off but then again, i don't think this box is even close to the final design in the end anyways.

Apparently not, since it has seen no activity in two years. If everybody had liked it, one would have thought something would have happened by now.

when this thread gets bumped, we might as well post an update on the current status.

looking on google maps, the mall that has to be demolished is still standing. similar situation for the megatall across the street. no demolition visible yet.

The building appears to be listed as "vision" on SSP. Any chance of this still being built?

If the mall the plot is on gets destroyed and the surrounding skyscrapers, namely Baishizhou area starts, this gets more likely.

It is titled 'Future City Project'. So it is likely meant to be for future use and not seeing it takes off presently is not something to worry about. The planners might just be in the initial stages of coming up with something that works in reality.

For a building that tall requires a tentative planning. I think that boxy concept is not going to be the final one while looking at the floor count and the sheer height.*

How is the actual occupation of buildings this big in Shenzhen and mainland China in general?
