i thought so too, but ctbuh still being at 606m and a lot of new articles mentioning 606m made me sceptical, i have the feeling the developers figured out there was pingan and just stopped talking about their plan as if nothing happened

They are digging on the left side of the site, and I can still see drilling rigs on the towers location (right side). So there still might left some piles to drill but definitely not too many.

good news concerning the height problem. ctbuh changed its data back to 636m, so it should hopefully be the final height now

On gaoloumi they still have it as 606 meters. A forumer regularly takes pics from other buildings that are a part of the larger development. So I take it he has more insight than we do here on SSC.
