I really think this should get built. It really puts Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen on the same "level" by each of them having a 2100 footer.

Go China!

That's great news. Any information regarding the final design? Is it still going to be the same one with the ugly boxes?

The Diamond Mansion is officially confirmed and will become the tallest building in Guangzhou (ie. over 600m)

Tallest skyscraper in Guangzhou to be built in Bai'e'tan
2011-March-18 Source: english.gz.gov.cn

On March 15, Spring 2011 Investment Attraction was held in Hong Kong on which Liwan District government introduced 33 projects including the popular Bai'e'tan Economic Circle, regeneration of Enning Lu and Guangzhou-Foshan Creative Park.

During the investment attraction meeting, Tang Hanghao, Chief Executive of Liwan District government, said that the plan of building the world's tallest sightseeing ferries wheel in Bai'e'tan was canceled. Many citizens and experts had objected to the plan as the ferries wheel may not go with the overall view of Shamian. In view of this the city planning department once decided to move it to Pazhou. But after the Guangzhou Tower was set up, the ferries wheel finally found its home at the top of this "tallest tower in Guangzhou".

Tang also said that Bai'e'tan has a plot ratio of 1.2, the lowest among all economic circles in Guangzhou. It is decided that Diamond Mansion, Guangzhou's tallest commercial building of about 600 meters, will be built in Bai'e'tan. This new landmark building will be planned by the municipal department and subject to slight adjustment in height.

Among the 33 projects introduced in Hong Kong, there are 7 regeneration projects involving an area of 64280 m2. Accepting suggestions from the experts of culture and city planning, Liwan government will strengthen the protection of featured buildings, which means another 10000 m2 of buildings around Enning Lu will be preserved including over 100 former residences of famous Canton Opera artists. Residents can preserve and inherit the unique Xiguan culture.

This is great. Now Guangzhou has a 400m+, 500+, AND a 600m+! Congrats to GZ. The skyline will be amazing when this thing's done

I doubt that, because this building will be far away from downtown Canton (ie. 珠江新城), it will be in White Goose Pool district(ie. =Baietan=白鵝潭) in Lai Wan
The new skyline won't be as striking as all the skyscrapers cluster together like Dubai
dunno what the the final design will be yet, but the news reports still use original "rectangular glass box" design, and you know SOM loves that design
The name of this building will be "Diamond Tower"?

^Hmm... Well that's no fun. It would've been really cool to see all of GZ's tallest next to each other. Oh well. All that means is that they'll need a 600m+ downtown

You can add in Shenzhen now right? Guangzhou is kind of the same when Chow Tai Fook is done, it already has GV Tower and GZ IFC quite close together already and what about beijing and their proposed towers, they will be somewhat in the same CBD. HK's Supertalls are across the river from each other and 2IFC is close to the Centre right? or the other tower.

Chongqing will have plenty on that peninsula of theirs

True Baietan is roughly 5km away from Zhujiang Net Town. But unlike Shanghai, Guangzhou will have several nice skylines. Baietan won't just build one of these supertalls. It's supposed to be the second CBD on Guangzhou. I bet others will pop-up around.

There is a 500m planned in Yuancun which is just next to Zhujiang New Town. Skyline will be definitely impressive in that area in the next 10 years.

This is a pretty nice plan the towers okay but it is to many square boxes. But at least it's not like Dubai.

china is amazeing

china is amazing must have around a density of 22000 per km^2.
that is not very high it should have um.70% of land should be residentail.
average hight 35 story. um that means and you could fit 40000 houses * 3=120000 people in every km^2 which means 4 million people and 4 million jobs
but costarring only half is bulit up should only be 2 million each. will apear in simcity 5 as china diamond building.
