I thought that those two towers aren't 480m. It certainly doesn't look like they're that tall from the render, more like 480m between the two

Which is the official design of Ningbo WTC... the firstpic or the secondpic? Also it can be 480m? floor count doesn't seem to match with it.

Ningbo city is quite spectacular. thanx for sharing these pics. I know for a fact, Ningbo is in Zhejiang province (coastal) and one of the richest provinces after Guangdong province. ningbo is a economically important because is a port city and a major export centre.

It's all looking great. Twin towers are not mesmerising but I still like them!

Ningbo is another Chinese city to look out for.

I have to say this is probably the most lackluster city, design wise, to me. Compared to a Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing or many others that is. The twin towers are bland and uninteresting, and thus look somewhat like a 70s american skyscraper. None of the other designs excite me either.
