Learning that Shimao may be behind the project leaves me distraught though. Likely another tongue-in-cheek proposal by Shimao, who has swindled us with fake heights for ages.

Shimao is a good developer though. If this gets build, but is only half as tall, that would STILL be good news as we didn't even know this project existed yesterday

Another project for the booming Shenzhen, this kinda looks like an environmentally friendly building based on the render, this will be fun to see it rise if it gets built

This is a bad location in my opinion because in this area it would be a standalone building and wouldn't improve Shenzhen's skyline at all. So to build a megatall there would be kind of a waste.

the most eastern as well as most northern supertall of the city. While it is really far away from other sizable skyscrapers, it helps in the whole megalopolis kind of sense. With supertalls spreading out the pearl river delta will basically have tall buildings everywhere. In terms of 250m buildings Dongguan and Huizhou already have projects that are closer to Shenzhen than their core cities.

It's along a metro line, not directly in the center of town but hardly "nowhere"

Supertalls in Shenzhen have always been spread all the way across the city, that this one is in yet another new area really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone...?

I prefer it when they use simple boxes as placeholders for concept images rather than randomly taking another tower from a different city.
