1st of all - the height should've been updated to 398m, that's the official number. 2nd -- it's definitely into the construction phase, which started in late 2011.

check out another supertall from ningbo -- 450m City Light (if that's the official translation). Construction officially started today - 6/7/2012 (local time).

Don't expect us to believe it if you don't bother to post any source.

Yes, I really like the daytime render. I hope they don't change it.

Lol, buddy, I don't surf online for a living, just like to check out this site on occasions...so I won't bother having to dig through ningbo's local forum in order to find the articles that proclaim the 398m official height.

Believe or not, none of my business at the end.

But I'm sure you are literate in Chinese, go search around yourself, 380m was the original estimate by a forumer on ningbo's nbuc discussion board, and gaoloumi's info/images are grossly outdated.

You know who took those photo of the construction site you just posted? Me...lol, without my consent, I might add. But anyways, thanks for forwarding all the info, keep it up!

For anyone interested, the other supertall from ningbo -- City Lights, has had its official unveiling party on 6/8/2012. An article from a local source:

随着许家印的出场,关于恒大是否进入宁波市场的猜测终于尘埃落定。

  6月8日,位于东部新城的城市之光综合体终于开工,并举办相应仪式。本次仪式的一大亮点是:城市之光新股东——恒大地产高调亮相,与爱家网此前的预测完全吻合(详见爱家网6月6日相关报道),其掌门人许家印与宁波市市长刘奇、副市长王仁洲、江东区区委书记胡军、区长孙黎明等,以及城市之光的另一股东,三立控股的董事长郁国祥先生一起列于主席台上。甚而有著名资深电视节目主持人杨澜,以及范冰冰、刘嘉玲、王学圻、李亚鹏等娱乐圈名流共同出席,据不少旁观业内人士评价,仅从场面之大,就为宁波房地产市场近来年所仅见。

  开工典礼上,宁波市有关领导对此次恒大集团和三立控股的强强联手充满了信心。



据了解,恒大集团是在香港联交所主板上市,以住宅产业为主,集商业物业、旅游综合体、体育及文化产业于一体的特大型企业集团。其品牌特征以民生地产为理念,致力打造中国老百姓买得起的精品住宅,是中国规模最大、销售面积最多的龙头房地产企业。此次进军宁波被业内誉为其对华东板块的深度布局。恒大的作品不仅将出现在东部新城,在镇海九龙湖以及江北湾头或许都将立即有重要作品问世。而6月8日的这次出现,也意味着恒大地产集团正式进军宁波,或将凭借其雄厚的开发实力,以城市运营商的高姿态联合三立控股推出宁波城市之光商业综合体项目。

据悉,宁波城市之光商业综合体将建成为455米的高楼,也将成为宁波又一地标性建筑。

Relevant info: the final height for City Lights = 455m

I didn't post any construction picture. Feel free to dennounce uncredited pic by you in this forum, as a mod I'll edit those posts immediately Problem is, we often quote updates from Gaoloumi, a forum full of trolls. They copy the pics from elsewhere and they rarely credit the original authors, so it's hard for us to credit the actual author properly.

We have a thread for City Light tower. Feel free to post info about that project in its own thread. Don't forget the links for the info you post! Unlike other forums, we care about reliability here in SSC

lol, buddy, no worries, i was just kidding anyways...yes i took those in early May, but you can forward/upload those pix anyway you like.

now of course any info posted here should be appropriately sourced. but with china, im sure you know, as well as I, that reliable info are typically not gathered up through the most straightforward methods, so with a topic like ningbo center's total height, it's almost impossible to verify until the developer or the architect has posted the project on their websites. (ningbo center was noted by the developer to be designed by SOM, yet there's no trace of it on the SOM's project listing online; but purely based on my experience with china, these developers are generally correct at the end, so you just have to take their words for it at this point.)
