@Superlaowai, you've become my favourite forumer of the year. But would you mind resizing your pics before posting to say 800x600 or so? You are killing my smartphone lol

Indeed. But the third one is my favourite by far. It's unique, looks very massive and no spire. Even if it isn't the tallest I'd vote for it. 123 floors to the main roof, 151 structural floors if you count the parapet... Easily 750m+.

i like all of the designs as well. third and fourth are more unique, but i wouldn't say no to a taller version of ping an aswell, so whatever comes out of it, i will be extremely happy i think

Definitely, none of the designs is bad. We'll get a 700m tower and that's just awesome!

Only now I noticed that the first design (the kpf like) is on the wrong site. It's on the site the Century Plaza twin will be located. Could it mean we'll get megatalls twins there It's also the spire design so maybe spire twin megatalls is what we'll see here.

the first and second designs are in the same location, you can see that on the green thing in the middle, one time looking on lakeside, one time looking cityside
