The Project is 508m+.

Four designs are from SOM, KPF, Nikken Sekkei and a UK company respectively. The shortest design is 508m.

yes shenzhen really needs a 500+m skyscraper. it should be built at a record building speed of China, which means faster than Shunhing's speed of 2.5days per level.

Well, TV Towers are not skyscrapers And the East Tower... I think that the height increase wasn't approved.

There are other 500m+ proposals in China. The city model of Tianjin's Nanjing Lu shows a 130 floor tower, just a concept prop by the moment. And Wuhan's Wangjiadun CBD is supposed to be planning a 500m tower in a long term too.

For landscapes like this, quality is more important than speed...

Very true, as long as they don't use 10 years on the construction.
