According to Gaoloumi, it looks like this plot is a joint of 2 plots, very interesting. There should be 3 buildings in this "plot"

Most likely not but only ground works are in that plot. The height is a big mystery just like with J2-2's name. It is developed by 粤海。 Not exactly sure the translation. I wouldn't
be surprised if its going to supertall.

Why is it such a mystery? The plot diagram you posted obviously says a 226 tower is planned for the plot opposite of leatop plaza.

I wonder if this luxurious giant would succeed against 1WTC in "one on one" section

I wish the pinnacle tower were in a more prominent position, that is a beautiful building!

This city has a sort of corridor or vista effect with a narrow green space in the middle, quite unlike any other city I know of with such tall buildings. It is attractive.

It might be a little early to ask, but has anyone seen any renders for the lighting concept? Or have any info about what this tower might look like when it's lit up?

Looks like we have new information on plot B1-1. No source, from gaoloumi. Possibly fake



Height looks like to have changed to 300m?
