The other 3 towers are 42 floors, 178.24m

Details (huge image): http://www.gh.dl.gov.cn/ManagementWe...d%e5%bf%83.jpg

We can guess the height of the second tower anyway. Here are some numbers...

Main tower is 403.9m tall. Excluding the crown, it is 368.8m tall and has 81 floors.

The podium has 5 floors and 42.8m, if we exclude the podium too we have 76 floors and 326m. That is an average of 4.28m per floor.

The main body of the second tower (excluding podium and crown) has 57 floors. We don't know he height, but 57f x 4.28 would be 243m.

243.9m (body) + 43.8m (podium) + 35.1m (crown) = 322.8m. The second tower should be around 320-330m then

If you look at the elevation drawing closely, you will notice that the elevation of the sidewalk level is 15.5 m. on the main tower and ranges from 29 to 31 m. on the other towers. So, the main tower will actually be 388.4 m. and the other towers will be in the 146 m. range.

Wow, you are right, thanks a lot. Why did they start counting below the sidewalk level?

It could be sea level or city datum. This is not uncommon with elevation drawings.

No pics of the hole for 6 weeks. Who knows if they started the foundation works of the main towers already...

How fast they reached the 26th floor! The construction was on 16 floor 1 month ago.
This means 1 floor per 3 days, pretty fast.
