Great job doing the list
Btw, Heung Kong Tower is now completed, so can you mark Heung Kong Tower as built. You can also mark Jingji waterfront tower as Topped out. I think you are missing one supertall in Shenzhen, it's called Changfu Jinmao tower( I guess ) 303m tall, here's it's post in Gaoloumi: http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.p...extra=page%3D1.

Wait what? Wasn't this building first progressing slowly and then on hold for several months without any updates? Is the video you posted for real or is it a hoax by Broad?

I see, I didn't read what was written there the first time I watched the video. I might have mistaken the on hold time for slower construction time too, so yeah, I believe you are right and this is for real. That opens the billion dollar question, if this is real, will the 727 meter Skycity be real one day too?

That's sad, although I think that in the light of this latest development, the megatall Skycity thread should be unlocked again. Is the completition of the mini Skycity proof, that the megatall Skycity will be built? No. Is this proof that the megatall Skycity can be built? No. However it certainly is evidence that suggests that Broad is not a mere hoaxter company and I think that SSC forumers should have a right to discuss this proposal

So with sky city still fighting for permits actively, the dream is still alive, but of course unlikely to happen, the new news made me still happy though. The thread is closed so I post my initial reaction to the news here:

Good news. It might be just trying to get attention, but considering they started preparing the plot before I do believe that they try all they can to fulfill this dream. Whether they manage to get the permits and whether they can actually build it without costs rising beyond their budget is another question. But I do hope that they at least get to try.

Realistically I think it will get delayed again in 2016 and they never get the permits, but maybe build a shorter one of these towers. It remains to be seen.

We'll see. I've still hopes though the chances are not very high they can start construction this or next year. But nevertheless, if they would build it, it would be one of the most awesome projects ever!

But you're right, maybe they should first build something between 300m and 400m first.

it was their plan to build a 350m tower before anyway. But due to the proximity to the airport that tower got cut in half, so they should find a new location and try it again.

Some rich families have everything in Hong Kong and want to keep prices high. This is why poor people live in cage-house.

Hong Kong has one supertall on another. The same Shanghai, the city is filled with supertals, according to the original plan and now we´ll see supertalls mania in other cities in China.

Actually, Shanghai has 'only' 6 supertalls including Oriental Pearl Tower and Shanghai Tower. Hong Kong has only 6 supertalls too even without any Megatall. That may sound like many supertalls, but if you compare it to the three other Mega Skyline cities like Dubai (28 supertalls by 2020 including two Megatalls) and New York (13 supertalls by 2020) and the other chinese city, Shenzhen (15 supertalls by 2020 including one megatall), it suddenly isn't so much. The race must go on and it would be a shame, if Shanghai and Hong Kong is out of the race.

Dubai is and always be world´s No.1 supertall powerty because of the UAE politics, that situates almost all supertals in only one city. NY has a lot of supertalls but no megatalls. And Shenzhen, HK, SH and Guangzhou seems to me cca at the same supertall level 6 supertalls in a city is incredible, HK has over 100 skyscrapers, no megatall. SH has over 50 skyscrapers, 1 megatall. Every city is different...

Found this on CTBUH Nantong Zhongnan Tower, couldn't find a thread on it. Anyone know anything else on this building, it's listed as a vision?
