i only like the right tower... alot. but what is it with china and towers with holes on top? i think the left one is ugly and just a height *****. it also doesnt fit at all imo. and the pool is just stupid
what i also dont get about these modern all glass towers: why the hell has every part of the tower be clad in the excact same cladding, even if glass cladding has no use at certain places? it just looks bland and sterile.

Well you know there're +700m+ proposals for Changsha, Wuhan and Qingdao. But they are still too concept to be seen as reliable +700m stuff.

I hope that it will not be a height *****. It looks like there is plenty of room to fit a good restaurant/observation deck up there with small offices going up the sides of the hole. I'd even like to see a bar/nightclub up there.

Yeah. IMO Qingdao 777 Tower is a vision project and it wont be built. About Wuhan Erqi Tower (707m) I don't know what to say.

As far as everything is planned, I will soon move to Qingdao. I will look for more information about this project once I live there....

I don't think his post was a reply to yours. He means Suzhou Century Center is increasing its height every page. Hopefully we'll confirm it's 750m+ soon, lol! China tallest!
