I would be really surprised if this goes ahead at 655m. I thought the CPP recently set a country-wide height limit of 500m.

I wonder who decides what towers are weird. I think it's a budget thing honestly. If it were up to us enthusiats we'd have megatalls all around the world. But the world we live in is full of greed so the higher the demand the higher the cost.

buildings with holes or large crowns are more expensive to build and provide less floor space as simple boxes. A megatall loses a lot of floor space just because of elevators and the taller it is the higher the price per floor gets. China wants developers to think economically instead of building just because they can and then ending up in financial troubles later. I think this is the main reason behind the cuts lately.

I know I've seen somebody dig up the original source quite recently, but I can't remember where. The problem is that all of the primary sources are in Chinese, so even if I found it it would be hard to recognize.

A CNN article linked to this page as a source, but I have no idea at all what it's saying. It could be exactly what you're looking for, or an abstract poem about fluctuations in the price of eggs. It's all Chinese to me.

The issue was also discussed on this page of a thread about a potential megatall in Shenzhen, and as you can see the top post has embedded a post where the number 500 is seen a few times. Still, no idea how much of a source it is.

We might need some help from members who know Chinese to find the primary source again, and then we should pin it in the Megatalls discussion thread so we can find it easier the next time somebody asks.

The 1st source is about bus stations should be built within 500m of communities

The 2nd source is about a specific project in Shenzhen that has been reduced to 500m.

Actually there is a simple tool you can use that works very well:
