I'll state the obvious and say that 700m is amazing, but the tower itself looks really great.

Is this tower part of a grand master plan?

Qingdao.
Zorg was saying that the developers clearly rehashed a (failed) design for Shanghai Tower.

Chinese projects planning are starting to resemble Dubai in 2008. Many project are proposed without considering the economics behind it, such as One Dubai, Anera Tower, EP-9, or the 2400m Dubai city Tower, which now are all either cancelled or infinitely delayed (stale proposal).
Media hype and a sudden influx of foreign capital make people lost their brains, which will turn out to be devastating.

There's a difference though, China, being one of 2 of the world's most populated regions, has the capital. It's also the main emerging superpower of this century and it NEEDS to build as much space for it's 1 billion plus inhabitants whereas Dubai's situation is entirely different for it's much much smaller population.

True in someway. However, even UAE has only a small population, its nationals are one of the wealthiest in the world, where Chinese per capita income is less than half of the world average.
Also, UAE has economical advantage over its Middle-Eastern neighbours, since it has a freer policy and business atomsphere, where in East Asia, many investor could go to Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore instead. No Chinese cities are business niche, overseas companies enter China for cheap labour 1 or 2 decades ago, and right now China is a huge market (due to large population, not per capita spending power), so those companies enter China to earn money from Chinese people.
Moreover, even China has a large population, its area is also very large, land is not scarce, 10 -15 story mid-rise is enough, there is no need for a 777m tower.

Chinese cities need to build up not outward. Chinese arable lands are scarce...I don't know what you mean by "land is not scarce", unless you mistaken that all of China's land are habitable.

If Qingdao builds four 200m building, i don't think you'll be here complaining.

Qingdao has 3-4 million inhabitants and it's located on a tiny peninsula, with very little space to grow horizontally. Also it has a large colonial district, very unlikely to be redeveloped. It's a very good option for a dense CBD.

Besides, Shandong provice has 95 million inhabitants and the only big cities are Jinan and Qingdao. Obviously in the long term Qingdao will grow a very decent skyline.

A 10-15 story high rise is enough for residential because there needs to be parks and services built for the people also.
So any thing over 20 stories doesn't save any space.(unless there was something like vertical parks lol) But when it
comes to office high rises it doesn't matter how tall you build because no extra people are added to the city anyways.
So might as well build 700+m high rise, no downside except for cost.

crskyline is flat out wrong in saying there is enough space in China to spread out horizontally, he is not taking into account that the vast majority of the Chinese population is squeezed into the east coast area and that the population there is extremely dense. Chinese cities on the east coast have no choice but to grow upwards. Space is at a premium there.
