Have you ever heard of the Crown Las Vegas Tower? Greenland looks very similar to that. It was cancelled unfortunately.

Never heard of it. But no wonder it's similar since it's from SOM when Adrian Smith might still be on board (he left SOM in 2006).

How tall was it going to be?

i remember crown las vegas. it was cancelled because of stupid airport reasons again. it was probably the project in the united states i was most excited about. would have been one heck of an icon for the city. but first the size was decreased and then cancelled altogether

That's the way it should be. This endless digging in the mud of Shenzen was ridiculous at Ping An Finance Center...

Another Super Skyscraper - I think the CTBUH will have to create a new name for Mega Tall Skyscrapers - this is going to look nice when completed. Nowadays a 1000 building is nothing special. The Shard just looks like a tall building - the kudos is now in super tall buildings!

Definitely, i guess this tower will be even wider at the base than Ping An.

this buiolding is shaped inwards a bit though, so it might take more space but the overall area in the bottom floors might be around the same as in pingan.

Megatall is an official CTBUH classification for buildings over 600m, so this is a megatall along with Shanghai Tower, Ping An, Burj Khalifa, and the Abraj Al Bait.
