I honestly couldnt care less how much money a person puts into a project. It still doesnt change the fact that this building is nothing more than a form of conspicuous consumption, which is entirely irrational.

Having stayed in Singapore, Malaysia and now China for over 20 years, I attest to this: even places like Shenzhen or Sanya now have real estate values close to major CBDs of Western Europe or Australia, and selected Tier 2s will follow. So, both the values and wages will rise steeply, therefore the costs too. So, yes, saving any massive property meltdown, it is much cheaper to build it now then, say, 3 or 5 years from now.

The long named Fanchenggang city has a unique advantage of being designed as border-city with Vietnam, aimed to be 'Chinese San Diego'. As China and ASEAN have a sort of FTA between them, this place would be a major trading port, so having a couple of landmark towers to house related companies isn't without a reason.

This is getting ridiculous. Random towns? And this isn't becoming some landmark- it's not distinctive.

If this is ridiculous... at least the 528m tower was rejected

Irrational to you, but the fact remains that property value is rising quickly all around China and demand for office space, hotel, and high end condos are going up everyday. So it's a smart move to build it while it's cheap to do so, don't wait until property value and construction cost become too high, and office vacancy rate becomes dangerously low like Shanghai. Many Chinese cities are building brand new CBDs away from the traditional city center for the same reason, it may look like overbuilding or even "ghost towns" to uninformed Western journalists, but they will pay off in the long run.

I agree. For all, we love skyscrapers (that's why we're here in the 1st place). Why build small when you can build tall?

Why build tall when you can build logically? A 160m building would still constitute a large building in most municipalities in the world, and two of them would give us all twice as much to watch.

New alleged design. No sources, probably fake.
