Wait so Ordos is not dead yet? Does that mean there's still hope for Ordos100?!

Looking at those photos, I just can't see how these two buildings are over 800 feet tall. They clearly have less than 50 floors each and frankly look to be 600 some feet tall.

Indeed, and it doesn't look like they have tall floors either.

CTBUH lists the two highest as 189 m, the two mid-towers as 140 m and doesn't mention the two lowest:

Yes, but judging from above images I've a hard time believing the tallest towers are 249 m.
The images shows two 41-44 fl buildings. Assuming a standard 4 m floor-to-floor height and adding a few metres for the lower floors and the roof-thingie, 189 m seems realistic.

Other sources already states the mid-towers to be 140 m.

Here's another, quite new but almost unreadable, source:

http://www.bootyshow.tv/action/blogc.../?blog_id=2410

Which states the podium building to be 32 m, and the towers sems like 5-6 times taller.
