Shenzhen was the first Special Economic Zone of China, so it started developing earlier than other cities like Shanghai.

At 666m I'm also very curious about the status of this development.

This silence feels like closing negotiations. No info, just instinct. My hunch is it moves forward soon and that it is 700m+.

of course!

but when the project first came up last year it already started with a height of far over 600m. and it seems it's going to be a bigger project, so a height increase isn't unlikely.
It could be cancelled too or decreased alot, but i don't hope it

well if a city has the capability of pulling out a 700m building right now, it gotta be Shenzhen, so i don't see why not

Even with the current height of over 2,100 feet to roof height this will become one of the most impressive buildings in the world. A higher roof height than Ping An IFC by roughly 200 feet is an incredible feat and would be great to see.

Though the roof isn't that wide, it IS a roof.

2 months since we heard there is a new design, yet it is not released, i have the feeling something even bigger might be coming. A height increase sounds like a good reason to hide a design for a while
