Just imagining shanghai centre standing next to these two towers is unimaginable.

I like that the 600m news is coming from Gensler and not some wacky newspaper.

the final height is ablove 600, lower than 700,

from the hint the final height should be about 670m or 680m

this is a very reliable source from one of the guy involved in the construction

i highly doubt that, but i could be wrong. 600m is just perfect height. but we just have to hear it from Gensler or some other reliable source.

I think according to the renders it will dwarf SWFC al least with 100m i think more with 150m.


Its likely that the final height according to the render is something like 650-690m (current hight of Burj Dubai).

I like this style of skyline where the lower big towers have more character and the tallest one goes with a simpler design, works really well in Hong Kong at the moment.

I think the diffirents with SWFC and Shanghai Center will be at least 100m...(+/-150m)!
