URUMQI | Baoneng Financial Center | 300m x 3 | 984ft x 3 | 230m x 2 | 787ft x 2 | U/C

I'm sorry, no renders. But I thought it's too tall to ignore it in SSC.

Urumqi first supertall announced, and yet another monster by Baoneng. Looks like Baoneng aims to rival Greenland in the aspect

There's also a 300m residential tower coming in Urumqi btw.

If true, it would mean that 600+ towers become more and more normal faster than expected. I wonder if technology in construction also follows the exponential growth theory.

I guess before 2020 we will have to create a section that is ultra tall.

China is going crazy with skyscrapers

Ridiculous how every Regional capital in china needs a 600m building, or wants one. I bet they don't even need such a tower over there at all, its just for stupid prestige and keeping up with the joneses. A city is more than the size of your biggest tower, I guess china doesn't understand that. The kingdom tower is also ridiculous. Follies. They are silly indeed. Real estate bubble time in china waiting for the fall? They said that they overbuilt the hsr system too fast and too soon, it could be the same with their tower fascination.

They overbuilt their system too fast and too soon???

Who they hell are "They"? More precisely what are "They" doing right now? Now if they want a tower let me build one its their time, capital, resources and labour what issue do "They" have with that. This is case of a bunch of people pulling themselves up by their bootlaces, they may or maynot go overboard at times but at least they're not sitting on the fences throwing barbs at others hoping that failure strikes sooner rather than later to help explain away their inaction or ineptitude.

What is your issue with people working hard to improve their lot on lifeI mean you're not paying for it?

My definition of ridiculous is small people laughing at other people with big dreams.

It will be a landmark, with unobscured views 360°C around and visible from far away.
The idea is not so different from the church towers in our villages.

Ok that sounds awesome, but has that Baoneng developer build anything big already? What are theirs credentials?

Complete lie regarding the HSR system. Now you have a point which I agree with somewhat but when you throw in that utter nonsense regarding HSR it makes it hard to believe any of the post.

I think this project will be quietly forgotten. Urumqi is in a "sensitive" area which means its not really the best place economically. For example they shut down Internet and SMS completely for several years after the riots in 2009, lowering economic growth. Anything's possible in China but I'm just not feeling this one.

I really love china's development right now but i do think that in the case of Urumqi it's a leap too high. I guess they tried to boost their city image by building a show stopper scraper but to me a 600m scraper would no one enough to garner enough attention to the city. The huge opportunity cost put into it has kind of outweigh the benfits of it. I'd rather hope they clean up the old cityscapes and build a small cluster of high rises and skyscrapers, in the case of Urumqi

Very high altitude: 3,500 [Lhasa] to 5,500 metres (11,500 to 18,000 ft) - Maximum SaO2 falls below 90% as the arterial PO2 falls below 60mmHg. Extreme hypoxemia may occur during exercise, during sleep, and in the presence of high altitude pulmonary edema or other acute lung conditions. Severe altitude illness occurs most commonly in this range.[9]
