On some of the notes above, nobody builds a 700m building because they need room for people. 100-200m buildings are suffiecient for this. None the less, I really hope they build this.

I agree with previous posters; I can simply not understand why they are planning to build something over 700 meters in Qingdao.

It wouldnt ruin the skyline though, because there is no skyline in Qingdao. :P

Current Qingdao "skyline"

According to Gaoloumi, this building is in Tangdao Bay on the other side of the Qingdao Bay in Huangdao. When I find a ferry to the other side there I will have look. Its soon gonna be National Holiday and I am now 4 days in Qingdao and havent explored much. So I will have plenty of time to go there and have a closer look.

Plenty of Space there to develop stuff....

Lots of these megatall proposals won't be build but it's interesting to see how many proposals came up over the last years.
