That guy is talking out his ass. There is no law stating you cant go over 500m in China. I think companies are just playing it safe for now because the budget for megatalls is mega money. The trade war with America probably has a lot to do with it. Wuhan was a great design but the aviation limits were in place so they had to cap it.

About this project and Wuhan's Greenland Centre's fate with the city having about 36.2% vacancy rate amongst others...

China’s skyscraper boom comes down to earth
Construction of tall buildings hit as slowing economy trims credit supply
Among them is Zhongnan Center in the eastern city of Suzhou. Construction of the 729m skyscraper would make it the second highest in the world if it were ever completed, but building work stalled shortly after construction began in 2015.

“The most rational choice for us is to construct at a slow pace until the market recovers,” said an official at Zhongnan Group, developer of the Suzhou project.

Was there an update claiming that it will be over 800 m.? Cause this is how it is pictured in SkyscraperPage.

If ever build this tower will probably not even reach 600m. Probably just arround 500m as all other projects going on right now.
