If it did they'd have to ask astronomical rents for it to be profitable.

I don't think so, the 300m and the 400m tower really started, but they have their own threads. The reason why the rest of the plots are also looking like they started likely is, that they first have to build Shenwan Station, which is a subway station, before they can start building the towers.

Site is cleared, but no drilling or digging. Not prep yet IMO.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the plot with the huge circular structure a part of this?

Edit: Nevermind, it's part of the Metro Vanke Mangrove project.

Phase 1 is about to start. Two 300m towers, one 400m tower and one 480m tower are all in preparation. Just look at the photo above your post, if that's not news, i don't know what is.

Are there any chosen plans yet, or just the design student masturbation posted upthread?

Well they are working on some plots, more plots will be worked on when the time's right economically, probably within 2-3 years. Most likely will be a cluster of "normal" looking skyscrapers.
