GUANGZHOU | Poly Pazhou | 309m | 1015ft | 61 fl | 196m | 643ft | 43 fl | T/O

The Chinese city of Guangzhou could soon be getting another supertall if the winning masterplan by Goettsch Partners for a key development site gets realised.

Their plans tie in three of the main development sites of Poly Real Estate Co, one of the largest publicly owned property companies in China. They are looking at the development of a new city district in Pazhou which lies to the east of the existing Guangzhou city centre.

Anchoring the centre of the sites will be a large multi layered circular plaza with a traffic bridge sweeping over it preserving the existing road layout and channeling the traffic above the pedestrians liberating the site from car use.

Set around this will be a supertall mixed-use tower on Plot 4s north-eastern portion directly overlooking the passing Pearl River along with a serviced apartment tower also in tow. The taller of these two will have concave facades facing towards the centre of the site, whilst Plot 5 will have three commercial office skyscrapers again with concave fronts. Breaking away from these curves Plot 10 will have separate office and hotel towers that respond to the more regularly shaped parcel of land.

Between them they will host a total of 428,000 square metres of space. With Goesttsch Partners having beaten off the other entries of a competition, it should be interesting to see which architects get appointed to actually design the scheme specifics.

Another awesome Guangzhou 'scraper

Simple, but elegant, and powerful.



How far away is it from the IFC?

I guess it is just next to the plot you point on the map. I'm quite sure the area that has been cleaned lately will be residential.

But this is great news for Guangzhou's development. New development areas start to take shape. Let's hope more projects will be revealed in a near future.

It is standing alone today, but Pazhou in the next 5 years will have a similar development to Zhujiang New Town over the last 5 years. Constructions are starting a bit everwhere on the island.

This is u/c for a pretty long time and no one has moved this to the u/c section?

Well the two months I was in Guangzhou with my friend I can see that whole Pazhou area was being developed, and it says it was by Poly and its building an area with a lot of apartments and on one of the towers at night it shows LED lights that says it was built by Poly. Some of those apartments are nearly done so why wouldn't they start this building?

maybe the apartments are phase one. just assuming this is U/C by seeing apartment buildings rise and then posting this is U/C seems a bit premature
