Actually those have been around for a few months already...
Nanjing International Plaza was scaled down from 400m+ if I remember correctly :-/
Thanks for the high res renders for Greenland Zifeng, General Huo, they look great ^ ^

It's sort of confusing, I don't think there is a decisive release now. but current plan is definitely over 400m for spire, maybe upto 450m. I have some Chinese sources in China subforum.

It is becoming a nice panorama skyline now. Interesting thing is that an huge majority of the projects is underground with constrution. Only a few are rising...

It'll be great when they all begin to rise rapidly at the same time. Imagine when all are close to completion. We'll have a new 300m tower finished every week

only a few years back, a 300m skyscraper would create some interest, these days theres one going up every week. now the bldg has to be 400m or higher. seems like Burj Dubai as set a new precident?

I agree.

but I think the ESB height will be the benchmark for supertall status (interest). Or 400m.

p.s. I love those renders! At the very least, it's a quick reference. Could you please add the floor count to the T101 like you did to the other biggies? Thanks

yes bldgs have to be actually uc to be on diagram.

its always mayhem with trying to find recent pix of projects at end of each month and there isnt any.lol
the diagram is only as accurate as the available updates.
cheers
