Yeah, they remind me a bit of the wtc as well... but a much more futuristic-looking version! Anyway, I hope 480m is the correct height.... that would be amazing. Yeah, they remind me a bit of the wtc as well... but a much more futuristic-looking version!

Hehe, I really hope the 480m value is the right one, that would be amazing. I'm not sure how accurate the number of floors in the night render is (there are no discerable floors in the day render) since, I don't know if it's just me, but it seems to me that the floors seem more spread out in the night render compared to the day render/photo on the other buildings. This is especially noticeable on the building just to the left of the two main towers. And the floor spacing in the night render on the main towers seem much more spread out than the floor spacing on the building right in front of it.

So.... I'm still going to hope for the best!

By the way, where is the 250m figure from? I guess if it's a credible source, I'd have to believe it.

I'd say that it ranges from 250m- 280 max.

From the render, no way those two are 480 m each.

Yeah, I guess they do look more like ~ 250-300m rather than 480m, don't they?

No shit! Stunning and very ambitious for a city like Ningbo (never heard about it...LOL) must I say. Reminds me a lot to the WTC. It's the best project going on in the World IMO. It also underlines the decline of NYC in terms of skyline....to witness some Ningbo city build from scratch an icon like the WTC whereas NYC is constructing that Ikea table look-alike Freedom Tower turns my stomach upside down.

My drawing of the towers is 480m, so I hope it isn't wrong. No info about the use for the towers, office, residential etc? And are they under construction?
Have you seen it?

You can keep them that way so far, because i haven't seen anything yet which proove them to be 250m-280m.
