well i like the design already, although it is just concept. the height is great. do youknow where it is located at? i see it is directly on the coastline so my guess would be qianhai or houhai?

well nevermind, just found out that shekou is an area in shenzhen close to Houhai, so that explains whereabout the tower will be. so the closest 500m tower will be china resources with <5km distance

Actually it may be 600m~ if the renders are reliable. In the first image, you can count around 75-80 floors for the twins on the right. Te main tower seem to have 125 floors plus a tall structure on its top. Then the shortest tower has around 56 floors, so the other twins next to it must be around 65 floors.
So we have:
1x125~
2x78~
2x63~
1x56~

Shenzhen builds as if there were no tomorrow. I mean 2,3 megatalls may be ok, but >10? Doesn't make sense economically; this is not healthy anymore.
And before someone judges and accuses me of jealousy, be aware that Ping An is my favourite building under construction. ;)
I think there are 4 main courses why there are so much projekts in shenzhen:
1.The booming economy in the city
2.The fast groth of the cities population
3.The space shortage (I think shenzhen is 9 times minor then Beijin or something like that)
4.I am not sure but I think the city is the richest in whole china
And before you judges Shenzhen that its projects doesn't makes sence anymore look at Jeddah and its 1000m+ tower, Jeddah has 3 million population and 2000 citizen per square km while shenzhen have approximately 5000 citizens per square km and a population of 10 million ! Futhermore Shenzhen can't expend much while Jeddah is sourunded by desert.

More coming anyway. We still have no thread for Shenzhen Construction Group Tower. They expect ~400-500m in Gaoloumi.

Also 建设集团+Evergrande is preparing a 600m+ tower very close to Kingkey, and we haven't a thread for this one either since there's still too little info and no images.

And then a 108 floor tower announced in Nanshan, no images.

Several unclear 300m~ proposals too...

Well, it's just incredible :lol:

Huge pity Shenzhen gov is so protectionist concerning land development, too bad non local developers aren't given a chance lately. Poor Greenland :D

^^ yeah greenland is building the tallest in so many cities :D

edit:
Wow, this is so far away from the other towers, madness. Almost rural.;)
it won't be ;) Shekou is really close to Houhai. the Shekou metro line even goes thru houhai just a few stations from Shekou itself. just expending the skyline south a bit

I was going to say it's not too far away from China Resources Center, but it is, lol. Houhai CBD is huge too.

But once again we have the airport problem, hum?
