What, are we possibly talking about the world's tallest in Suzhou???
A height increase of an 729m tower!!!

Edit: ...or is 729 already the new height? I'm confused...and excited...

729m before the new information, height increased to something even taller.

it won't finish before Kingdom Tower, so even if the height increase is over 100m (and under 280m) it still won't become the worlds tallest. Yet it will just line up with Sky City and the Qianhai tower as the potential first 800m building for china, and considering Qianhai is longterm and Sky City is visionary, it would have a good chance of making it before them

Not 729 and won't be the world's tallest. Sorry...I wish I could say more, but I got this from someone who has given me section drawings in the past of a few projects, and I don't want to jeopardize our business relationship.

Whatever the final turns out looking like, for that height I'd imagine it'll look phenominal.

Let's sum up:


Proposal 1: They say 750m, no sources, likely fake height.


Proposal 2: They say 780m, no sources, likely fake height.
[/QUOTE]

Proposal 3: Gensler, 729m (preliminary height)



Hmmm, I know vito can't tell anything else, I guess he either got decent stuff about props 1 or 2, got actual height of prop 3 or got a new one
