CULWULLA,
Actually it seems like the final design yet has to bee decided. Two of the proposed towers have a 400m roof height, while the other ("Freedom Tower design") has a spire which makes the total height reach 400m.

Construction updates will be up later today.

The whole site is massive.
These cranes are where the smaller towers will be located.





The plot where the main tower (400m) will be located is still occupied by these small buildings that hasn't been torn down yet. They are doing it as we speak though.


There's not a single rendering at the site yet - all I could find was this billboard. Can't understand much of it.

Cheers Staff!

Dont go much on the design of the supertall - all looks very random.
We shall wait and see.

This is the construction billborad for the Xujiahui station of new subway (or railway if you need a more literal translation) line 9 segment 6 (what the heck is segment 6? ). Based on the pictures you took, I can't tell what's the exact location of this site. Although they could be constructing the subway line and the station instead of this Xujiahui Centre.

^The site is too big for just a subway station alone--I'm thinking a station will be below the high-rise project, a la GangHui (which is right next door). Unfortunately that sign doesn't tell us anything else besides the subway construction--unless there are other details listed in the print too small to read in the photo--but I doubt it.
