It seems like Wuhan has quite a few of these proposals.

They've also got a metro that's newly opened with more lines coming into service in the near future.

My cousin goes to university in Wuhan, I have to make a note to myself to pay him a visit when I've got the time and money to do so xD

in the first render the top of the tallest building reminds me of the IFC in Guangzhou.

Wuhan has good chances to be the first city with 2 megatalls.

only if Burj 2020 does not start next year. And Shenzhen could also be a danger for this title. 4 years ago the first megatall in the world was finished and now there are quite a few possible candidates to have two, it's crazy

Shenzhen has quite a few possible megatalls in the pipeline though.

Lets not get carried away yet. Shanghai Tower has just been topped out so at this point there are only two Mega Tall Buildings on the planet. To add the second this you must have the first one built. For that reason my money is on Dubai.

Don't forget the Royal Clock Tower in Mecca with 601m. Of course, Mecca will not get a 2nd one in the near future.

It's a very long-term project - don't expect a start of construction soon.
