Well...
This is not going to happen.


If they still want such crown, they have to demolish at least 50 m of the concrete core....


We will see what will happen next.

Thats old and fake news.
Dont worry guys, this has already been clarified in gaoloumi by whhb123 and RickyBlaine 1 month ago. The project continues with 636m and 120 floors.

Its not going to be 500m this far along. If anything they might cut to the original 606m plan. I think Shanghai has a mafia that makes sure no one surpasses Shanghai Tower nod nod wink Ping'an.

Thanks for explaining the superskyscraper equivalent of tall poppy syndrome. AS+GG's design is intact!

They wouldn't have put up that new tower crane on top if they were getting ready to top out shortly at 500m...

I've been wondering about that final height but the height stays the same as far as I can tell from gaoloumi the only thing changed is floor count from 125 to 120

To Wuchang District Urban Management Committee:

On 20 July 2017, Wuhan Urban Planning Department carried out field survey on the Greenland Center project on 750 Heping Ave. The project's height exceeded the limit that was set on the construction halt order on 14 Jan 2017. Specifics are as follow: the building's core structure is currently at 469.7m above sea level (445.3m above ground level), formwork platform at 494.7m above sea (470.3m above ground), tower crane when resting at 510.6m above sea (486.2m above ground), tower crane when highest jib at 530.6m above sea (506.2m above ground). According to CAAC CSB and Hubei Province Supervision Department, the height of everything in the Greenland Center project must not exceed 500m from sea level (this includes spires, antennas, tower cranes, etc).

As per the memorandum of understanding with the Wuhan City Government on 16 Jan 2017, we ask that you take this matter seriously, that you take a hands on approach to properly enforce these rules, that you strengthen oversight and complete these following tasks:
1. Immediately order Greenland Holdings Corp's Wuhan Greenland Binjiang Property subsidiary to stop construction on the project, and have them carry out adjustments to the tower cranes according to the findings from the flight path risk assessment report, that their height do not exceed 500m.

.........
This would bump the building down to Supertall from Megatall.

Perhaps the tower form evolved from re-imaging Lake Point as a 21st century megatall. That'd be a cool Chicago-Chinese fusion.

And I'm also suprised and glad to see so wide and long strip of well-arranged green along the river in the neighborhood of the tower - I love such a beautiful megatall buildings, but their sorrounding areas are very important - not only concrete, glass and steel

Ps. Is the Wuhan Sub-Provincial Urban Management Committee joking with the maximally 500 m above sea level !? It can't be real !! Maybe except the tower !?

Definitely no shortening of the building if they're adding the third crane! :-)
