486m according to AEDAS. I trust the arhitect more than the developer. Greenland trolls its own projects displaying fake heights all the time. On the other hand, maybe they misspelt the height at the website.

we'll jus wait and see for the final height. 18m isn't that big of a difference in the end anyways.

I don't think they would prepare anything for the foundation before digging up the basement levels.. Anyway I believe something is going to happen here very soon.. I always very positive about all these projects, I don't think anyone would waste the money for planing and preparation and then just leave it with no reason

Those rebar cages must be for piling. This should be U/C soon.

Nobody goes to this sort of trouble over a scam. If we can infer someone's state of mind from their actions then there is some serious intention behind this. Cheng Du really needs a building like this.

This is way too tall for this area. I hope more supertalls will rise here.

It would be too tall for most areas in fact for the city as a whole. But being a benchmark it could encourage other large scale developments.

It is a great designed unique tower, so it works fine as a standalone. Kind of like taipei 101

Its better this tower stands alone. It reminds me of a giant alien monolith. Total masterpiece!

Quoting and old post, this is one of the coolest designs I've ever seen. This tower needs to be built somewhere. Unique design + flat roof, no spire.

Edit: I guess it's good to know this is the final design?

Hopefully the numbers were mistyped and they really meant 864m.
