Your right, I does seem kinda skinny...

But that might not be such a bad thing. Usually skinny buildings look even talller then they actually are.

I think this case it is surrounded by some of the tallest buildings on earth Like the shun hing plaza . So that effect won't be realized. Remember this is Shenzhen in China . You need at least 500 mt if you want your building to look tall.

Not far. They are about 300m apart. It takes less than 5min to walk from the base of Diwang to the base of Kingkey.

Tom Green took this picture from the observation deck at Diwang
