Demand is different in different places. In Beijing for example, demand for office space is so high that A grade office rent there is now more expensive than midtown Manhattan. I think for places like Nanjing, these developments are more speculative and are aimed to lure large companies to set up headquarters there. This makes sense to me, since they wouldn't come if these towers weren't there to accommodate them. It's called investment. Replying to your point about being located in the city center, there could be a number of factors for building away from there. Development space, land acquisition cost, the plan to build new CBDs for the purpose of better urban planning and to alleviate traffic congestion. I'm sure the developers are smart enough to think of what you are saying since they're investing millions of dollars into this.

But yes, I would also prefer it being part of a more centralised skyline. I guess it's just how it is...

You have completely missed the point and bought into the "ghost city" fairy tale. The city center is so congested that it's a good idea to build a dedicated CBD to divert the traffic a bit. They are not building them for show, but rather taking advantage of the cheaper land acquisition and construction cost. Several of Suning's supertall attempts in downtown Nanjing had to be abandoned or postponed due to difficulty with land acquisitions. A lot of new middle class professionals who live on the edge of the city are not willing to sit through the traffic to get to downtown, but won't have any problem getting to Hexi where traffic is much lighter and optimized for public transportation.

Looks like the two red cranes are FAVCO M440D, what about the blue pair? M1280D?
