Ok, the pics are updated, but you wouldn't see much progress on China's construction sites just cuz of China New Year, so i hope next time these pics will be more informative with BIG PROGRESS.

You are right. But you can see what I mean in the picture in post #127.

The World One core is at about 230 m, so the core is more than half-way up.

The adjacent skyscraper, World Crest, is close to topping out.

Ok, welcome World's 22th, and China's 14th 400m+ roof height supertall, Zhongnan Center in Suzhou, China, it has 729m height (2392ft), and 138 floors, and it is Under Construction now.




In the list i sorted this tower by overall height, and not by roof height, just because like Burj Khalifa and Kingdom Tower this project has the "spire" (i can't even call it spire) which is a logical continuation of the building, and not like detached spire at One World Center in New York. Anyway it's taller then 400m and without any doubt should be in the list.

BTW, it is 4th World's megatall (600m) tower, and 6th of all world's megatalls (u/c and complited).

not exactly sure what you want to consider roof, but spire is 729m, highest floor below tuned mass damper is 598m. 696m is the top of the crown, which you seemed to deem the roof in your definition in the thread itself (post #769). make what you want from it, just giving you the info you need for the first post on the page. the rest is up to you

I really tired to talking about roofs, spires, just let me show you (and others) what is the meaning of this thread in two images:

OK




NOT OK




And how do think why i sorted Zhongnan Center by overall height of 729m (and not 696m or 598, etc.)
