We're too spoiled by those megatalls. +500m is definetely more than average height.

Very true! This would have been the tallest building in the world 10 years ago.

525m HQ slated for SZ Bay

Han Ximin
[email protected]
CHINA Resources has started construction of a 525-meter-tall headquarters building in the Shenzhen Bay area south of the “Spring Cocoon,” where the opening ceremony of the 2011 Summer Universiade was held, continuing the trend of stratospheric heights in Shenzhen skylines.
The Hong Kong-based conglomerate held a groundbreaking ceremony yesterday to launch construction of its Shenzhen Bay Comprehensive Development Project, which includes its mainland headquarters and an office headquarters for its subsidiary, Vanguard.
The comprehensive project will cover 85,700 square meters with a cluster of office and hotel buildings and a massive shopping center. Total floor space of all the buildings is expected to reach 760,000 square meters.
The project has a projected cost of 20 billion yuan (US$3 billion) and is scheduled for completion in 2016.
The China Resources headquarters building, dubbed “Bamboo Shoot,” likely will be the second-tallest building in Shenzhen when completed. Ping An’s new office building in Futian District will be 646 meters tall upon completion in 2014.
However, the rankings could change as new skyscrapers are built. Caiwuwei Kingkey Center in Luohu District is planned for a height of 666 meters, which would make it the tallest building in the city.
Shenzhen’s tallest building at the moment, the Kingkey 100, is 441.8 meters tall.
Lu Ruifeng, Shenzhen’s executive vice mayor, said the projects would help with the development of a “headquarters economy.”
China Resources is 223rd in the latest Fortune 500 ranking, with revenues of US$43.4 billion in 2012.
The local government is turning the Shenzhen Bay area into a center of the city’s headquarters economy.

In China anything under 550m is a second tier supertall project, like it or not. Excellent design though, one of my favs ever.
