I just know that there is going to be two very tall skyscrapers next to each other, surrounded by a lot of other, shorter but still great buildings!

The final height was confirmed at 432m several month ago. The source of the 530m article was from an official's saying two years ago, do not be confused by it.

ah...lots of ppl asked this question.

One Guangzhou official told the media last month that "Guangzhou already has enough skyscrapers, according to our plan, the East Tower is not very likely to be taller than the West Tower."

However, as the East Tower is not even designed yet, there is no guarantee on the tower's final height.

The design of the entrance is a bit dissappointing though.

they look ordinary by today's standards, and they will look ordinary for tomorrow's standards.

But what will never change is that they will always look ordinary. Whereas something that may look spectacularly amazing today, may be regarded as downright ugly tomorrow.

These are buildings that are meant to last lifetimes, you would rather have a building that will look ordinarly everlasting, than a building thats on the fab for a week and visually unbearable for the rest of its existence.
