广州市市长张广宁昨日在陪同广西党政代表团参观广州城建时透露,广州目前正规划建造超过500米的华南第一高楼。张广宁说,第一高楼的规划工作已经开始,选址现暂定在珠江新城,建筑高度约为530多米,另外还会有一座高度在400米至500米左右的建筑,预计总投资超过100亿元,现正在寻找投资主体。

The first Tower will be 530 m tall, the second tower is under desicion, it may be between 400m and 500m high.

I love Guangzhou, I was there in January. And I have to agree that I doubt the air quality will ever be very good.

It's still a great city though, 1000 times better than Shenzhen.

bit of classification for me here please, can twin towers really be different heights or do they then just become two buildings of a similar design??? i know one of the world trade centre had a big antennae on top, but they were the same structural height top floor height etc.

point is can two buildings that are different heights really take petronas' crown as the tallest twins??? if so can we then start to say that burj dubai and some of its neighbouring towers can be called twins even though the designs and heights are different, when the average height is still bigger and the locations are as close?
