I used to work in Taiwan and personally it doesn't worry me if their buildings are listed on the PRC list or not.

But I made of couple of interesting obervations while I was there

1. The official name for Taiwan is not the Republic of Taiwan but the Republic of China, they still retain the original flag from its founding in 1911 and recognized the great patriot Sun Zhong Shan as its first President and founder of the KMT its ruling party for most of its existence.

2. Still lays claims to soverignity over the Mainland and its terrorities at its closest point lies well within the 12 mile limit off the coast of Fujian.

3 Has Mandarin as its official language

4. A significant number of taiwanese residents trace their ancestry directly back to China esp the 1949 exodus.

That is not to say that the the ROC should be considered part and parcel of the PRC.

I find it odd to see people claiming that the PRC has no valid claim over the island due to the fact it was either indepedent or part of Japan is not was not aligned in anyway to the Mainland culturally, lingusitically etc.

If such a claim were true then how do you expalin all the above? he irony of which was not lost on me .

From an infrastructure point of view the buildings in question are insignificant in terms of their quantity .

If there was such a thing as a Greater China I can't thing of a better candidate than Taiwan better than HK and Macau even at least their spoken dialect is closer and most of them are descended from NE part of China so culturally closer than the southerners.

Apart from their use of traditional characters and lower density housing in urban areas I would have a hard job telling their neigborhoods apart it's only when they open their mouths that you realize you are not in the PRC.

A new 600m+ for Nanjing? It is Jiangbei Area so most likely Pukou?

Taiwan should be separate state after referendum. As well as Novorossia or Transnistria for example

Opps, missed the Kingkey tower near Xiasha. And there's one more secret tower that is possibly a super tall in Luohu, Huaxun tower(don't remember the official name for it)

There seem to be a fair number of smaller buildings in the picture situated in the WKCD area there are curently no plans for such buildings to be constructed in those locations.
