Guangzhou CTF too.

Yeah, I'm not surprised. I don't think this will be built now. It always was a long shot, imo.

Fatal news

I hope it won't be cancelled, but just on hold, because of stock and financial confusion in China

Awesome. And what about the second smaller tower? That will need a separate thread presumably.

The link above has the good news that the project is not shut down and will complete in 2021.

Although I don't understand Chinese, I enjoyed the video that goes with the report - it had a great model of this tower!

Translated from Google for the site (though the video link does have cool models and shows how the lighting may look in the finalized building) .

---------------

"Recently, a message is transmitted uproar, saying that so-called "domestic construction tallest building" in Suzhou CENTRAL center project stopped up. The news came out, a time talking about, this is true?

Or take a look at SOUTH center project. It is located in Su Hui road, height of 729 meters, and the East Gate and Suzhou center form a whole, is the future of the city skyline Jinji Lake side. Here also Kosei CBD core area.

However, these two days to see the field, and around the project started in full swing compared to some here really seemed deserted. Only one site construction site security guard. Nearby workers say CENTRAL center does not start a few days.

Public information, SOUTH Center from January 3, 2014 beginning pile construction, pile foundation construction is almost complete in time, the project was shut down came the news.

Could the rumors are true? Today, SOUTH center developers for the first time made a positive response.

Developers said that in normal construction SOUTH center process, currently under way is ending pile site clean-up, as well as specific node assessment.

It is understood, SOUTH center plans to build the country's tallest building, the height ratio of the East Gate doubled, 137 on the ground floor, 5 floors underground, is set office, top apartments, luxury hotels, sightseeing in one of the modern large-scale complex.

SOUTH center will be completed on the date, the developers have given a new schedule, plan completed in about 2021."

-------

Alright! So 137 floors above, 5 floors below, with the program use being offices, higher income level apartments, then luxury hotel, with a height of 729 meters. Most of this we already know though

It's farther along than this...
Or are you referring to changes in its final height?

From what I've heard, there's uncertainty as to its actual height, since a large portion of the upper floors won't be used.

I'm reffering to chances of it actually getting built to that height.

Nice video! Really looking forward to when this gets built, and I really like the idea of the TMD inside the "Pearl Of the Orient".
