With some of the cranes blocking the view, I got a feeling that I was in Chicago. From far away blocking the supertall ones like wills and john.

What a great blue sky! I can't wait until china finish cleaning, all of these areas would look much better than some of americas cbds

It IS 10km away from the city center. Expansion is good even in chinese style with highrises. But does it really feel like a good place for a single megatall?

I would have liked it if the diamond blended more with the building or if it was completely scrapped. Don't really like the diamond because it looks like a giant version of King Kong put it there.

Soon we'll need a megatall forum!

supertall : between 300m-599m
megatall : at least 600m

it simply depends on how much 600m+ projects we'll have by then. if all projects can fill several pages, then we'll have a forum for megatalls.

There are not that many at the moment. if the limit was set at 500 meter, there would be quite a few more.

Or....increase the height of supertall status to 400 meter, so that some supertalls move back to highrises

There will be a peak for the number of megatalls. I think we'll reach that point in the next 2-3 years.
We won't see more and more 600m+ projects forever.

Is it just me, or is this a little "thicker" than Ping An?
