I like that there is so much discussion going on since I posted the pictures this week.
Awesome that you guys are so interested in Suzhou.
It is worth talking about it because it is a great city although I liked it better several years ago when it was more native without cars and crazy traffic.
No picture today because not much changed but work is going on.

Well those latest renders shows again something around 750m, so that's my closest bet.

Hope really that they would give a clear new height and proposal soon. But being in prep now is making me happen because its going to start.

Yes. :\

It confused me because that render is not on the first page. So I though it was just an alternate design... Not to mention the cancelled design has more dtailed renders.

It wasn't canceled because it always was just a concept master plan design. The tall needle one is likely the final proposal. The first page is still not updated most likely because we are still not sure for 100% whether it's final, but still - it's very likely it is.

Actually based on this render it's quite clear the tower goes on the opposed side of the plot. Quite weird, but maybe test piles don't need to be in the direct tower's location. After all they are only making couple test piles out of tens or hundreds piles to be installed under the tower so they can't test everything anyway.

There's one across the lake, a 450 meter Suzhou super tower, there's probably a super tall next to this, but we have not renders yet, last but not least there's a couple high rises and skyscrapers in front of this tower
