the foundation of J220 is scheduled to be laid in November according to this article in the Telegraph [URL="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/9577080/Worlds-tallest-skyscraper-to-be-built-like-Meccano-in-seven-months.html"]

I heard J220 will be finished in 7 months including offsite assembly. So If India tower never stops after it starts this December, it will still be the third tallest. But still, I'm not disappointed because I'm not too worried about the height, the design is unique and No one has ever seen this being implemented on a megatall. So I'm good.

it was more about a joke, no way J220 can keep up with their own schedule as much as i wish they would, because it would revolutionize building tall structures.

Wow, I thought this was dead. And I agree that both this and Russia Tower should be built, though iirc Russia Tower is already cancelled while this is only on hold

I was really hoping Russia tower to be built since both of these towers are designed by Foster+Partners....These guys are unlucky as they deserve recognition (based on their designs for both) in the megatall sector yet both of their projects are not currently under construction while one is unfortunately canceled.

2WTC in NYC is from Foster too, though it is on hold as well. AT least it isn't in danger of being cancelled like the India Tower. I really hope India Tower will get built at the end

2WTC is not a megatall though. But It is the most gorgeous out all the new buildings at WTC site. As far as I know, only India tower and Russia tower are the only megatalls proposed by Foster + Partners. Or am I missing something? Any other proposed megatalls by them?

Also I think both 2WTC and India Tower have the same chances of survival. 2WTC is on hold because of the lack of its (economic) need and India Tower because of money. More or less the same thing.

And I agree dunefreezer. Foster is my favorite architect and I'd love to see some of his work in megatall section. But I guess his designs are very expensive to build since they often include lots of details and extreme shapes.

I'm fairly sure there was some news on Russia Tower a few months back regarding an extension of the construction permit until 2015 a think, so it's more On Hold (albeit for a lengthy time) rather than Cancelled.
