Im a bit unsure if this is the same project or a very similar one.
This project seems to be somewhat alive, "only" 500 m according to gaoloumi

I can't understand Chinese but... There is a 500m tall tower, a 400m tall one and 300m tall one? Isn't it?

Just rumours afaik. Official news said that they'd build a 650m tower. Not sure if they have released further details though.

If this is official/the same project, I'm quite sure the above render is a placeholder.

Are you really paying attention to the aspect of the towers? Lol. SOM just designed the masterplan, that means you have to pay attention to the distribution and heights only

Pretty much what I said. You can tell just by looking at it that it isn't an actual design.

(Though I know a few cities in the world where something like that would be built. )

Thanks! Concerning the main tower the rumour becomes a fact for us now. Then what are those 400m, 300m, 290m towers you mention? Are they real as well? They say nathing about them in those links.

the names are "diamond tower"(500m) as it was before, "gold tower"(400m) and "silver tower"(300m). they also mention that the diamond tower will not be taller than chow tai fook (530m).

the piano tower (300m) is together with a 110m one that is already under construction called Liby Tower, the name seems to come from a company for food perhabs.
