One of the best design ever... I don´t understand why do chinese build skyscrapers in style of old 1wtc, just boxes. This should be awesome, even if it had 400m for example.

on the map, the plot behind IFC looks now smaller than the construction side of the supertall, no way a 600m monster fits there, unless that infrastructure project in the middle of the plot is a metro line that will be completely underground.
