Only a overview: If I counted right there are 8 supertalls under construction ( If we ignore that pingam IFC is on hold ) And 26 proposed projekts with 1 or more supertalls and of course there are a lot of proposed supertalls who havn't a treat and the boom goes on ! Dubai have 25 supertalls on hold, under construction and proposed and the, there are one 828 meter high tower and two 500 towers on hold. I think shenzhen is on the best way to have much more supertalls then dubai and many of these supertalls are 500+ and 600+ meters high !!!!!!!!Amazing prognisis !!!! How i can make this dancing bananas

Firm admits illegal use of sea sand
2013-March-22 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN Universe (Group) Co. acknowledged publicly Tuesday that one of its subsidiaries has been ordered to stop operations for a year after illegally using sea sand to make concrete, Chinese-language media reported Thursday.

It’s estimated that the company could suffer losses of at least 2 million yuan (US$317,000) because of the penalty. Shenzhen Universe’s stock prices dropped 3.19 percent Wednesday.

As a listed concrete company based in the city, Shenzhen Universe has been under investors’ close attention since China Central Television (CCTV) reported March 14 that potentially erosive sea sand had been used in many construction projects in Shenzhen.

Immediately following the CCTV report, Shenzhen Universe said the raw materials used in its products met national standards and passed quality tests. But that same day, concrete produced by Shenzhen Universe subsidiary Shenzhen Tiandi Concrete Co. failed to meet standards in a citywide inspection led by the Shenzhen Municipal Housing and Construction Bureau.

Not until Tuesday did Shenzhen Universe acknowledge that Tiandi Concrete had illegally used sea sand and been ordered to stop work for a year.

Another Shenzhen Universe subsidiary, Yuandong Co., also is allegedly using sea sand from the Mawan Sand Pit in Nanshan District, according to Chinese-language media reports. CCTV alleged that the Mawan Sand Pit supplies a large quantity of unqualified sea sand to Shenzhen builders.

Shenzhen Universe didn’t mention the Yuandong case in its Tuesday statement.

Shenzhen construction officials checked 165 concrete samples at construction sites across the city and found that 9.7 percent failed to meet standards.

The Ping An Financial Center, an under-construction, 660-meter-tall skyscraper owned by China Ping An Insurance (Group) Co., has been included in allegations of illegal sea sand use. But the Shenzhen-based financial conglomerate released a statement Wednesday that said the building met national standards in quality tests. Ping An also refuted reports that claimed the company could lose billions of yuan if unsafe building materials were found in the skyscraper, which could be the tallest building in China upon completion.

Of course. But that's the point. Even if only 1/3 will be build it's still crazy. And no doubt many new skyscrapers will be announced in the coming months.

Oh holy Spaghetti Monster, that is quite a long list. May deserve its own thread even. I think Heung Kong Tower is not topped out yet though. The core may be, but the floors are still going up at least until they cover the core. For the masterplan towers it is hard to see what we will get. Final designs are always different from what the first designs are off so we may lose a lot of supertalls there or may even gain more over time. Shenzhen looks promising however to have potential to beat records like most supertalls (dubai), most skyscrapers (hong kong) etc, etc. It will have several skylines as big as world cities in just different areas of the city and a lot of filler buildings in between will make it look like an ocean of skylines for sure.
