I don't think they painted anything. At least it doesn't look like it to me.

We are reading on gaoloumi.com some persistent rumors about the height being cut down. Do anybody know more about that? Is it based on rumors only or is there more to it?

That'd be nearly tragic, for the proportions of this skyscraper are just perfect.

Very unlikely.
Most probably all parts are already manufactured and the structure is designed for this specific height. Height cut would mean zero savings on construction cost and loss on usable sqf.

You're probably right. I was also thinking about your latest argument that I find the most pertinent.

Maybe you missed understood. Building is already passed the 500m mark with 107 floors built in the core. Shenzhen needs a landmark tower and I doubt the authorities will let a height reduction happen.

It's CrazyboyXY who told me this on QQ saying that there is a high possibility. But so far no tangible proof.

The core is over 500m already and not far away feom topping out at arround 580m - 590m. I really can't imagine they reduced anything here. The only thing i can imagine is a cut at the Spire. But that would look stupid and i also don't see a reason why they should do this.
I hope this is just a false rumor.
