This building is tremendous! I can't wait to hear them announce what the final height will be. Looks extremely tall, around ~2500ft. imo.

There was another one at the other side of the lake, SHK Project, 300m.
I don't know the progress there, should drive by and have a look at the building site.
Then I also only know about the other tower next to that one, no other
supertalls planned in Suzhou.
The building is slowing down anyway.
Nothing new at the building site so no picture today.

Ah yes, Greenland Center Suzhou, forgot that.
Might get build in Wujiang CBD, a new developed area.
This area is south west of century plaza, about 25km away.

Are all these excessive Chinese supertalls built with market speculation or do they need to sell a certain percentage before starting construction? are there any flats go in this tower?

You have already revealed your stand with the word excessive.

They can build as much skyscrapers as they like, I don't have a problem with that. BTW China has a population of a billion plus, so the excess is justified, cos there is a general saying; build first and they will come later.

My own stand is; build it to be charming, non-repetitive and appealing to reflect the beauty of the surrounding environment.
Key words: Creativity and Non-repetitive.

Weird. When did the groundbreaking take place exactly? Because the area seems to be filled with containers right now.

Amazingly they didn't display any render, right?

Very strange. The ground breaking ceremony took place in the lower left corner of the site visible on the picture zwamborn posted. Both pictures are from the same date and yet on one of them the location is empty and on the other packed with containers. If everything is correct the I'm impressed how quick chinese people are at moving stuff around
