The fourth one is the main plot of Wangjiadun CBD (where Wuhan Center is being erected). Wangjiadun is basically a supertall cluster, with 4-6 plots reserved for 400m+ towers. Too long term though.

good to hear we have more to come though. Wuhan may have some more surprises in the coming years it looks like.

It doesn't even look near 700 meter in this render. Pretty cool design though.

hope they stay with a design that has only a little crown and no spire which gives us a very tall roof height

Lol I wish there could be a building this tall to the roof that's this fat. But more mergatalls for China, nothing new, but I'm impressed nonetheless.
