Uruumqi ?

Hmmm...doesn't seem likely.

Northwest China is one of the key areas of China's development plans so if this had government backing I guess it's possible. At the same time , Uruumqi isn't particularly big (only about 2 and a half million people at most) nor exceedingly wealthy. Throw in the social instability of the region and the fact that this is one of the few places in China with room to grow outward in any direction and you've got yourself a pie-in-the-sky project that will probably never be heard of again.

Chiming in on the above. In the current local climate, Urumqi will get a seaport before it gets a megatall.

urumqi may not be the biggest city in china, but it is the biggest in the whole region of china, so a 300m-350m supertall there would not have surprised me that much. a megatall however, that is something we will see if it happens, i really do wish so, if built it will be more dominating than Taipei 101

Isn't this the biggest city in West China? For some reason chinese people really like to go to this city, although sometimes Lhasa beats it. I think its a great idea for china to start developing the west. Its kind like when america started to go west and see, LA and San Fran are great cities!

The Chinese have grand plans to reopen the old silk road to Europe via Russia so expect some movement across the board in all areas.

China seems to have Chinese names in the east and some weird language in the west, unlike most countries

Well they took Tibet and Xinjiang, so you will see a lot of differences between. I guess you could count they like Hong Kong. Its just like people in Tibet have green and blue eyes and red hair while other chinese don't

No, not exponential. It does grow steadily though. The supertall average probably rises 100 to 200 feet per decade so if the supertall average today is 1,200 feet then by 2050 we could be up to a 2,000 foot average (but probably closer to 1,700ft) By then there will probably be a handful of towers topping nearly 4k feet

People in Tibet are also entirely different in roots. Climate is very different and geographic isolation let them create a distinct culture although their language and Mandarin have roots millenia ago. Religion is a key sticking point in that Tibetans are devout Buddhist while Han Chinese are officially atheist with a slight bent towards Confucian and Dao customs (and some Buddhist certainly). The Uyghurs of Urumqi and more numerous around Kashgar are more Central Asiatic/Altaic. They are Muslims and some of these villages look like what you'd find in Afghanistan. They do want to be a part of China. You've even had Urumqi rebels stabbing Han with syringes and killing over 20 in the last outbreak. Western China is definitely the Wild Wild West
