I am extremely happy that they didn't pick the Gensler design.. I'd rather go for an awesome 400m supertall than a 600m megatall with terrible deisgn.
And by the way, 400m with flat roof is extremely tall, even in China.

It's a bit strange, because if you browse the website it says 400m everywhere
http://www.portmanusa.com/project.ph...&country=China
http://www.portmanusa.com/_uploads/4...4f393f6c03.pdf
http://www.portmanusa.com/projectdes...&country=China
http://www.portmanusa.com/_uploads/3...5767bd2585.pdf

From what point of the website do you reach the pdf claiming it has 508m? It may be just an old version whose link remains available.
