WUXI | Shimao Railway Station Project | 358m | 1175ft | 308m | 1010ft | Prep

Expected height: 2x300m~, will move to supertall subforum when we confirm it. According to unsourced rumors it'll be 2x368m. Shimao is an incredibly unreliable developer concerning skyscrapers. They normally release fake heights and build shorter towers later (Fuzhou, Shenyang, Shaoxing, etc), so I wouldn't expect too much from this.

Though Shimao is a total liar concerning heights, and the towers are likely to be shorter than 350m imho, at least I don't think they'll build a project under 300m if they are announcing it as taller than 350m.

Holy mother of God, those towers are really beautiful. And they may even become REAL... Wuxi never fails to surprise me.

I wish they would build more supertalls in Shanghai though, rather than Wuxi, Changzhou, Suzhou and Hangzhou.

Concerning heights Shimao = Troll developer. They lie all the time, so don't be too optimistic.
