Shanghai Tower will pass 597m WAY before GF117, so the highest this building could ever be ranked on the world's tallest list is 4th. Even a #4 rank would be short-lived once Ping An passes it.

I am talking about roof height which is the height I go by. According to roof height this tower will be higher than Ping An (1,929 feet) since it is 1,958 feet. So even if Ping An finishes in 2016 and this in 2017 it will be third. Burj Khalifa #1, Shanghai Tower #2, and Goldin Finance 117 #3.
Also I have The Royal Mecca Hotel Clock Tower at a roof height of 1,863 feet in case you are wondering. The only question is whether or not this will finish before Wuhan Greenland Center which has a height of 1,988 feet to the roof.

Wuhan Greenland Center? Does that go by another name? Never heard of it.

Well if it were a serious project, actually going on SSP would have it on their approval status, of bldgs getting ready to break ground,, I think this will get lost just as well as the Miami Megaopolis or whatever their calling it,, Or the Jeddah "Mile High" Just don't think those are for anything but Proposals, and won't go any further than the "dreamer" architects desk?? Just my thought.

the Wuhan greenland Center?? Ive never heard of it, until these fellows were mentioning it.. Not even on SSP visionary projects.. Looks cool on the SSC Projects.. But probably has the liklihood of being built as the Floating Miami mile high tower..

SSP isn't up-to-date, especially for projects outside the United States.

Wuhan Greenland Center just finished preperation works and is U/C now.

SSP is frequently wrong. Trust SSC and Gaoloumi.

Never heard of Gaoloumi,, and really don't understand that Language,, looks like it has the same layout as the skyscraperpages, but nothing else is comprehensible, and seems like this wuhland green center and Miami megalopoplis and Jeddah tower probably have no chance of getting off the architects desk..

Did you not just read this.
Wuhan Greenland Center is already underconstruction, stop comparing it to visions and the Jeddah Mile high tower, which is already in the prep stages.

Just because you have never heard of something does not mean it is a vision.
