If this will look anything like De Rotterdam I will be happy. That building is gorgeous.

Zero progress, completely OnHold. Let's hope they can resume construction ASAP with the CTF deal!

I'm sure it'll resume soon. I assume it just takes a while for the money to clear because you can't just send 1.9 billion with PayPal.

According to CTBUH, this complex has 4 towers.

http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/list...941&search=yes

So the title should be changed to | 300m x 4 | ??

Otherwise, we may forgetting three supertalls in statistics !

I consider this to be one homogenous structure... but this is really up for debatte.
Is it a design question? Or a technical one? Do we need to see it as a whole, or should we count the amount of connected floors and put it in relation to the total amount, and then make a judgement?

Consider this: could the rest of the structure exist without one of the "towers"?

One would need a PhD in engineering to do the necessary maths

I see 4 towers in the pictures being built in the pics, the "roof" will be a connecting building itself. I see nothing to debate about.

So why is Gate of the Orient considered to be one structure then? It's technically 2 individual towers.

with the creativity of architects it becomes a thin line between one and two towers with certain buildings. marina bay sands is also mostly counted as one building, although consists of three.

My point exactly! I find it extremely difficult to judge about this matter...

I guess like the spire/antenna official height debate, it is sort of a matter of opinion. At least in this case, it doesn't affect the height, so it would be a matter of one or four towers near the end of the list of supertalls.

Yup, it's up to your own opinion, regarding the Vietinbank towers most people would say these are two different towers, but structurally are the same as the're bounded by the podium. I see the same case here with the Dubai Pearl, but upside down.



It was some actually cool to discuss about. And sorry mods, no more off-topic.

What amazes me is the fact they spent millions of dollars building something totally different on this site. Than torn down the Towers that were under construction and started this project which ended up on hold for a long time.
