I really like the render of this new skyscraper very futuristic design and the area will look less crowded than other ones I have seen on these pages; also I would like to those informed what is the tall building right behind the one similar to a bridge that is almost finished, thanks

Century Plaza North Tower, this thread you are in is south tower. since it is still concept it doesn't have a thread yet. the height is given as ~400m, but keep in mind this tower had a height given as ~500m so it might be taller to fit next to this monster in a balanced way.

that is just a massing model not the design. this project had the same model before it started, you can see it on the first page.

This seems to show that the Zhongnan Center won't be over 700 m after all... ("only" 658 m)

How do you know it's without the spire? The other figures seem to be the actual height of the buildings...
