Why not, dude? They are being built by private companies, I don't think they want to waste their money for nothing. If a middle sized city builds 50 office buildings around 8 floors nobody cares, but when they build 8 towers around 50 floors everybody goes crazy


RunHua International Building, 258m, 55 floors.

They added the Poly Plaza to Wuxi diagram at ss.cn, supposed to be 298m, 70 floors, but I couldn't find any info about it :S I can remember that they talked about a huge project in Wuxi by Politec Group composed by many residential towers above 40 floors and one main tower above 250m though.

They said they are about to launch the final version of Jinkui Plaza. They chose this design, but it will have "more floors". Above 300m for sure. This one would be Wuxi's third approved supertall.

Is this underground heavy-rail subway or is it a light rail network?

i heard about this proposal and this ones a beauty! wuxi always exceeds my expectations and the amount of construction work goin on is out of this world! hope this gets approved then built soon also the final version of jinkui plaza is yet again modern and futuristic and hopefully its more then just 300m but still but happy since it'll be considered a supertall

Hang Lung Properties Buys Site In Wuxi City For CNY415 Mln
15 May 2009

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Hang Lung Properties Ltd. (0101.HK) said Friday it acquired a site in China's Wuxi, Jiangsu province, for CNY415 million (US$61.03 million).

Hang Lung Properties said in a statement the 16,700-square-meter site is adjacent to a property it is already developing, Wuxi Hang Lung Plaza, and will be another phase of that development.

The blue-chip company said last week it will spend about CNY4.5 billion developing a newly bought site in China's Dalian, Lioaning province, into a shopping mall.

Hang Lung has acquired prime sites in Tianjin; Shenyang, Liaoning province; Wuxi; and Jinan, Shandong province. The firm also has commercial projects in Shanghai.

So the rumor could be true after all. They said there is a 300-400m tower under planning next to the 220m~ twins they are starting.
