SUZHOU | Gate of the Orient | 302m | 990ft | 68 fl | T/O





I'm surprised there's no thread on this tower yet I couldn't find any update.

So I post those renderings (from skyscraper.cn) under the assumption that it is under construction now.

Not much to complain about on that design. A landmarkdevelopement should stand out and this design does so in a good way.

Construction hasn't start yet I think...

This is a concept model of the coming Suzhou CBD

I like the design alot, it's very unique, and somewhat futuristic.
It will be a great tower(s) when finished I'm sure of it.

^ Once the area is built up it will truly live up to its moniker. Very unique indeed

SSP diagram has had this up for two years (completed 2007). Little did I know it's still a hole in the ground. What a gorgeous building...eventually.

I hope James Bond will be running on the top of this building in his next 007 movie!
