Because those forums are trollcracies. Normally they don't even post sources for any info, you always have to check in Google. No height for a new project? It doesn't matter, they'll normally invent one.

2 years ago they posted that the Shanghai Tower would top 800m. They claimed they talked to the architects, blablabla, and a lot of people believed it.

They faked a whole article from the People's Dailiy claiming that Shanghai was planning a new 500m+ tower in Puxi, the article was created by a forumer and a lot of people believed it too.

Like 3 years ago West Tower was supposed to be revised upwards to 500m+.

Etc, etc, etc.

Can't you register there and tell them that? It's voor their own's sake. I can understand that it's very annoying.

SOM Chicago wins competition to design the Wujiang Greenland Tower

The Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) has announced their victory in an international competition to design the Greenland Group Suzhou Center in Wujiang, China. The 358-meter tower’s efficient split-core configuration demands a double-take, as the “curved, tapered form unifies the office, hotel and residential uses within a single volume.” More on ArchDaily.
