Almost nothing happens since nearly half year. Would this tower have the same faith as the golden buildings from Luowhu ? or those two high-rises from Dongmen ?

I just viewed an elevation drawing for this project:

Top of screens - 281.3m
Penthouse roof - 240.8m
Top floor (52) - 232.8m

Around 36m taller than we had before.

Nice!
Do you maybe know why there wasn't any construction progress the last few months?

No, I wish I could visit the construction site and find out what is going on, but that would involve a long trip.

If I remember right, 281.3m was the old height BEFORE it was scaled down to 245.20m with a penthouse roof height of 220.8m

Seeing it in person, 245.2m seems to be the correct height indeed. There's no way that those screens are 40.5 m tall which would be equal to roughly 9 to 10 floors. 24.4m however sounds just about right.

A new tower crane rised between those two billboards on top of the building. Does not make sense, nearly one year after was topped out and the main construction cranes were dismantled. Did they changed the height and now will rise more or did they forgot to install something big, for which they need to reattach a crane ?

You know...I think you are right. I took another look at the drawing I saw, and it doesn't compare with the recent construction images. I will investigate this issue further.

Thank you!

There are quite a few skyscrapers in China that end up being built not according to the original drawings but are still listed with original heights. Grand Gateway in Shanghai for instance is still listed at 262m even though that was supposed to be the total height including spires that were cancelled in the end.

You're both right and wrong. The spires were cancelled, but they were then replaced by the "domes". It is listed at 262 m and that's the correct height.

this is the height of the three big brothers in singapore, only that it is quite massive because its very wide. i really love it nice addition to the evergrowing skyline of shenzhen

edit: oh it was shortened. but 262m is still amazing

Ok, I have found out that the drawing I had looked at (281m), was indeed an older version. I have changed the title back to 245m. Sorry...my bad.
