Wow, this project is coming right along! It's a shame though, that the two towers aren't being built simultaneously.

I'm confused. The title says this will be 532m. The intro says it's 432m. Which figure is correct?

^ Ok I have read the thread. It looks like they will be 432m. Very impressive nonetheless.

Shouldn't someone correct the typo error and change it back to 432m? I was cnfused at first too. I initially thought they cancelled the other tower and decided to make this exceed 500m if I hadn't bothered reading the first page of the thread.

First, the height is at least 450M, not 432M.
Second, the final height of west tower has not been decided yet. I think Guangzhou wants to hold the title of tallest skyscrapers in Great China area as well, although it will have the world's tallest TV tower.

The whole of Guangzhou is one big f**king building site.

Best views are from the top of BaiYun Shan ('Mountain').

Can someone fix the thread title? I got all excited when I saw the height, and then I was a little disappointed to find the the actual height is 100 meters shorter. Still, great tower(s).
