Ok this is sandwiched between the Guangzhou Convention Center and Canton Tower in Pazhou district. This is part of an absolutely MASSIVE project to build a new CBD for Guangzhou and will have over 60 new buildings between 100-380m in height (by my count). You can see the area here:



Possible heights:








I sometimes visit this very area when I go to Canton Fair and the hotel I stay in is right next to the SW corner of the construction area. Last time I was there in March there were a couple new buildings up like this one:



But for the most part the entire area has either been razed or undergoing piling construction as you can see in google maps. This is (apparently) the site of the 380m tower in April:



I think the obvious reason for this new CBD is to support the exhibition center and Canton Fair, but I have no idea when it will be completed! I'm guessing at least 2022.

What information do you have about that? Are you referring to the other 300+m buildings in the diagrams I posted? Because those photos are several years old and I don't know if all those heights are final.

By the way here's another good view of the site from Canton Tower:

This one doesn't have the cutout sections, but there is definitely a resemblance between them.
