NINGBO (China): Twin Towers, 480m!!

I don't know if this was already posted, I looked back a few pages and couldn't find a thread. Anyway, I can't believe these went so unnoticed. I'd bet there are 10s of supertalls either planned or U/C in China that we don't know about

Nanjing has a 510m skyscraper under planning stage. I believe many Chinese cities have similiar ambitious plan to build some high-rises. (except Beijing where there's a height limitation)

Yes, for some reason the day picture reminds me of the wtc too.
But this is a great project, and incredibly tall! The skyline looks great on the render, let's hope it all goes well

I think they are actually building a Shangri La hotel tower there. They are still doing the fundation and the site is pretty large.

Yeh, 250m seems a lot more likely to me. I counted the floors of the left tower in the night shot and it seems to have about 67 floors. And 67s into 480m is 7.1m floor height - WAY to much. If there are 67s into 250m that makes it a 3.7m floor height - much more likely.

I havn't been able to find any sources at all for this. If anyone has any articles or websites that would be a big help.

What?


I hope that isn't true but the renders look kinda small for a 1575 ft tower.

250m is correct. Especially since the towers surrounding the twins are obviously not 300m tall.

Can't you see the title of this thread? It sais Ningbo, China.

Anyway, i found this article in some chinese page, probably Ningbo's own development and project section, where they claim they are 480m tall. Im trying to find more, but as usual its impossible to find anything about china searching google or yahoo.
