Suburban sprawl is worse in my opinion. At least here everything seems to be together.

I don't know about you guys, but the parapets in those renderings look more than 15 metres high to me.

Roof height is measured up to the bases of the antennae I guess.

I can't believe how China raises these bldgs., quickly, this is moving quick, makes me wonder why they didn't try to surpass the old twins,, clearly they can.. Itlooks like it's over 50 floors,, just so impressive.

I share your opinion.
But the problem is specific in China (too) many people try to find a living in the booming citys.
That's why they often destroy the most ancient parts of the city to have ground for those buildings.
But perhaps the interior is more liveable.
