Alleged design, 161 floors, 707m. They didn't credit the source.

By the way, I'm trying to open a thread for a new 501m tower in Wuhan. Huge pity I can't find sources, hope it's not fake lol

the design is like the one we had for the erqi tower one, but with the flaws deleted. it is not towering into a pinnacle with a lot of unusable space, it looks like it doesn't taper much at all and has floors up to mostly the roof with a crown that features mostlikely a great observation deck and then it ends with a nice, not over the top spire. the design is really really good, although i am not a big fan of the cladding, but that is a matter of the render and might change in reality.

161 fl and 707 m + It's design is quite cool for being +700m high.

Alleged downwards revision to 501m. No sources, probably fake.

Good design, wouldn't really mind it being true though. I am just happy if something tall rises and it doesn't stay a never built proposal in the end

With that very last render i kind of have a deja vu to an old 400m+ chongqing never built.

The design is indeed nice but 707m would be better

of course, a 501m tower is more likely than a 707m tower. But lets see what comes out in the end.

I think the height is not a matter at all (in China), it's all about the developer

I liked the original design, this one's a bit too 80s. But 500m is still huge!
Wuhan's skyline is really progressing.

707m to 501m? Why put it at 700+m when you will reduce the height??????
