Pretty soon, a lot of other countries will be joining in too, so this will be a hell of thing to watch heavy competition between multiple countries.

Korea and Indonesia are getting pretty close now to compete.

In Cityrain photo you can see on the deck only two winches and something not very big near the jib winch. I have doubt that it is engine.

In anyway we need more detailed photos of ZSL2700...
If you mean the slew ring... I'd doubt that very much. No room..

I prefer a jungle of 300m to 500m buildings over a couple of 700m buildings. Although, we have to be realistic, a jungle of supertalls within a city won't happen even if that city having the best bedrock foundation. Kong Kong is the closest to such a city, but still most buildings are under 300m.

Having a single 700 or 800m per city will result in large chunk of empty spaces surrounding that particular building due to required space for foundation. The building would be good to serve as a monument, but in terms of practicality a jungle of lower height buildings would be better.

There are no arguments to support the construction of a over 800 meters skyscraper, even in the emerging superpower China.

theres really no argument to support the construction of anything much more than 300 meters. the only real reason behind anything bigger is to make up for small dick size.

Yeah I agree. I was just answering someone else's question of proposes taller than Ping'an. I actually don't even think Ping'an is necessary, even though I am a fan of it.

All the 300m+ buildings in this forum don't need your agreement for their construction.

Freudian, lame and liberal. A very tiresome argument.

Not that I support building such a high scraper, but dick sizes has nothing to do with it.
