If the upper roof is taken into account, it can reach 45.8 meters. At the same time, the upper cover area will also be increased from 60% to 71.9%. The highest plot ratio is 3.38 times, and the overall plot ratio is about 2.34 times. The three proposed new wings are all 5 floors, one storey higher than the current Science Museum and History Museum.
