THE Shenzhen-based Ping An Insurance (Group) Co. on Wednesday denied media reports that the company is going to spend more than 10 billion yuan (US$1.46 billion) to build China’s tallest skyscraper in Shenzhen.

The company spokesman said Ping An had no intention of building the country’s tallest building, but the new office tower, which will house its head office, will be Shenzhen’s tallest.

So it means they did not have the "we need to have the country's tallest building" notion in mind when they planned it. The building just happens to be the tallest . Or the company is trying to keep a low profile to avoid stimulating some other developer in another city coming up with an even taller building.

yea, he meant the goal wasnt to build the highest of china, so if shanghai center was 650 meters, pingan still would be 646 meters. I hope this is what he means at least.

Considering the height of the taller tower, it'll make Shanghai want to build an 800-meter tower. I don't think China will build a 800-m tower. I should have had the Pingan IFC and the Shanghai Tower switch heights. Why does the tallest building in China have to be in Shenzhen anyway?

why not? shenzhen is the richest large city in china on a per capita basis, and unlike the shanghai centre, which is partly funded by the local government, the pingan tower is entirely financed by the firm itself; and lastly, don't forget that shenzhen's shunhing building was the tallest building in china when it completed.

As PingAn direct main competitor in China, "China Insurance Group", has approved the design of a beautiful "4 towers in 1" building in Shenzhen as its headquarter, PingAn won't have any other options to make something big to compete architecturly speaking!
http://www.fastcompany.com/blog/kit-...-power-station

Can someone start a thread about this new "4 towers in 1" building for "China Insurance group"?

I'm not crazy about the color. But I love the design!

Shenzhen Daily - 24 March

From Today's edition of Shenzhen Daily :
Ping An tower

A DESIGN of the new Ping An headquarters tower in Futian District CBD has passed an official environmental assessment, according to Sheng Ruisheng, public relations manager for the Ping An group. The 588-meter tower, estimated to cost up to 15 billion yuan (US$2.19 billion), will be the tallest building in the city when completed in December 2014. The 393.95-meter Diwang Mansion in Luohu District is currently the tallest building in Shenzhen.
Link: http://paper.sznews.com/szdaily/20090324/ca2910924.htm

So it seems the total height would be "only" 588 meters! Do you think this is without taking into account the spire ?

In fact the link worked but from the notification email I received in my mailbox. It was not working on the website.
Thanks for the link! It makes complete sense! So it will really be the biggest in China and it's still 5 minutes far from my apartment

588meters is the roof of the building excluding the spire, the final height is uncertain due to some reasons. It will not be the biggest building in China in terms of total floor space, but it will probably be the tallest.

Isn't Hong Kong the richest?

Hong Kong's status as part of China is still sketchy considering from the time of handover it was granted "50 years of relative autonomy."

So if we're counting Hong Kong then it is the richest city per capita in China ~40k usd/year.

If not though, Shenzhen takes the prize. ~20k usd/year.

I haven't looked into it but I am inclined to believe that in terms of PPP Shenzhen beats Hong Kong. Any answers to this would be much appreciated.

The design they had before was perfect.

In 2007, Shenzhen's GDP per capita was US$10,628, making it the richest of all Chinese cities.
Quote:
1. Hong Kong US$41,614 (2007)
2. Macau US$28,853 (2007)
I doubt in terms of PPP is much difference, because all cities have high standard of living. (the big diference betwen China's GDP and PPP is made in the rural and not so developed areas, where 100$ is like 1000$ in USA)
