In fact we don't even need 600 meters. Or 400 meters. Realistically how tall a building is practical and rational in the Chinese first tier context? I don't think we're even talking 300 meters. Perhaps 200-250 meters at best? Megatall era is over very shortly after having started. It seems that the supertall era might be coming to an end too.

We realistically don't need a lot of things in life. But we want things like 600+ meter tall buildings because they're freaking cool. That's a good enough reason in my book.

This building is more than likely never going to continue construction, it’s quite unfortunate because now there is only 1 megatall under construction on EARTH

Funny enough almost every single Unesco World Heritage site is a structure that's objectively unnecessary. Never accept that argument for a second.

1 U/C megatall in the world is more than enough for me.
