More coming for Shenzhen anyway. They've just announced a new +100 floor tower in Nanshan, we'll open a thread as soon as they release some images.

Wow, another one Just wondering whether you know if they'll be a 'Megatall' section added to the main page anytime soon?

I really loved the original design, the possible new design (the one that looks like Bionic Tower) looks nice but I really don't think it would suit Shenzhen or its height, that style of building would be better off really standing out, not just being another supertall.

On a lighter note, ZZ-II, your avatar is godly

i did not like the original design at all, i am really happy they changed it towards what we have now, also i think this is in an area where it will stick out, because this is not located directly where all the other monsters rise.
