Actually, they are 6.5km apart in very different areas of the city. This 600m tower was proposed on a plot with a 300m height limit. The developer scaled it down to ~430m after the 600m tower was roundly rejected. And we haven't heard much from it since.



Also this 430m one in Nanjing, 3 years now and still no update?

Its something awesome and crazy! Its The Superstar project!

Beijing-based architects MAD have designed a conceptual, star-shaped, mobile Chinatown. Moving around the world, the mobile town would produce all it’s own energy and recycle all its own waste, requiring no resources from its host city. The town would be home to 15,000 people and include health resorts, sports facilities, drinking-water lakes and a digital cemetery.

That design did not replace the first one. Foster just won the competition between several proposals for the site.
