Controversy

Like all of the tall structures built in China, this building is also heavily criticized by the general public for being one of the local government's showpiece projects for several reasons:

  • Research has shown that once buildings are taller than 300 meters or more than 100 stories, it would be uneconomical because the income would always be less than the operational cost.[citation needed] The local government of Shenzhen, only allowed such criticism in the initial hearing debate but decided to go ahead with the construction anyway, and just like the way it has constantly refused to publicize the complete information on the construction cost and measures taken to strengthen the building against possible earthquake, the complete information on operational cost and the income of the building is also never publicized despite public demands to do so.
