A basic fact and yet a lot of people will ream you on forums like this for saying it. Going over ~800ft has no purpose other than dick-waving and makes no engineering sense. The only reason it makes economic sense in some cases is because the super-rich will pay handsomely for the right to wave their dicks. It's a conspicuous consumption sort of deal.

Update: This building has already exeeded 300 meters in height for nearly 2 months already, thus exceeding supertall status, and it means about half the height of the building is complete. I guess it is around 320-335 meters by now. I hope it can be completed quickly, Because I'm a HUGE fan of skyscrapers and a HUGE, HUGE fan of the Wuhan Greenland Center. I want to go see it, take photos, and even go in its observation deck and stay in it too.

Topping Off: 2017

Estimated completion: 2017-2018

Opening: 2018

Any July/August Photo update? I would love to see them.

lift cores have to be so big for super/megatalls as they now form part of the office space
(as in one part of the office will be concrete enclosed, the other glass). The lifts
themselves are only in the central bit, not the arms.

On Hold

Quote:
A subsidiary of China’s largest construction group has suspended work on one of the nation’s tallest skyscrapers after the developer became the latest in a string of companies to default on a payment. The default highlights the growing challenges faced by China’s construction groups as the slowing economy trims credit supply, putting the once runaway mega-tower building boom under stress.

In an October 30 letter, China Construction Third Engineering Bureau Company (CCTEBC) said it would halt construction on the 476-meter-high Greenland Center in the central city of Wuhan. It said Greenland Group, one of the nation’s largest property companies, had failed to make “a significant” project payment.

“Unfinished supertall skyscrapers, which cost a huge amount of funds to build, are a typical sign of economic recession,” said Yan Yuejin, an analyst at Shanghai-based E-house China Research and Development Institution. “They are financed by credit and will run into trouble when lenders begin to scale back.”

China reported year-on-year economic growth of six percent in the third quarter, its slowest pace in 30 years. Other cash-strapped property developers have also been struggling to keep their tall-building projects afloat. Construction of more than a dozen super tall skyscrapers, defined as buildings higher than 300 meters, have been postponed or are behind schedule.
