SHANGHAI | Huamin Imperial Tower | 258m | 63 fl | Com

Location: 北京西路960号 / Beijing West Road 960th. Two blocks away from Plaza 66.

According to some sources it has 258m, 63 floors. According to others it is 230m, 60 floors. It depends on whether they include the crown or not I guess.





Height comparison

I went past the plot yesterday and I can confirm that it is.

What's going on in Shanghai? Normally they have to announce major projects several years ahead, cancel them a few times, change the design, change it back again, make it shorter and then cancel/restart again a few more times before they even shovel any dirt. This one has snuck right up on us!

We've known about if for almost 2 years or so, still.
But I don't think there have been any complications with this one. The renderings have shown some differences on the crown, that's all.

The night render looks like SimCity 4.

Anyway, it is quite OK, crown is interesting. Anyone knows what's going to be inside the crown?
