Depends on elevation, curvature, etc. That's only if Earth is perfectly spherical, which it clearly isn't. How far is Shenzhen?

~ 32 kilometres (~ 20 miles for you Americans) from that peak.

I doubt it as there are some pretty high mountains in Hong Kong, e.g. the Tai Mo Shan in the New Territories with a height of over 900m!

Two more pics I took this morning. Apologies for the quality as I always take the pics with my crapy phone. It's incredible how tall the tower is already. I am passing by the site at least once a day and it's hard to judge how fast it grows. But if you look through some pics here on SCC you can see how fast it shoots up. It's amazing! Especially those big ass columns and the size of the core.

I'm glad to see they're doing something on the other side. I don't know when it will start construction.

This is going to be a great addition to the Shenzhen CBD This tower could be an icebreaker since almost every superall being U/C or proposed has almost exclusively glass cladding

Wow! Love the design, and it will be a great addition to the Shenzhen skyline! Looking forwards to its completion.
