It reminds me a few things:
- Kingkey Finance Center Plaza in Shenzhen
- Nakheel Tower (proposed) in Dubai
- ***** (not a building ofc)
- Imperia Tower in Moscow

Anyways, it's a pretty supertall. BUILD IT please !!

It would in an earthquake

I quite like it actually. the other similar building in the photo of the six models is marginally better imo, but both are good because curvy towers are nice.

The design is great, but I fail to see how a 600m skyscraper can possibly be economically feasible in Wuhan. Supertalls of that height only make sense in really dense cities with very high land prices.

Wuhan is easily the most spread out of all of China's major cities and land prices are still relatively low compared to cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou or Nanjing.

yeah 600 seems a bit extreme, but it may be the beginning of other towers that join the CBD which will actually makes it more dense

With a population close to 10 million and almost 7million urban residents in its core.

They better make their city dense =="

The engineers in China, are incredible, but the U.S. needs to stabilize from the recession and start again with a rate 255+ supertall projects at any given time, and get back the title of having the worlds largest building. Props to China, and their incredible expansion rate and capacity, but the U.S. needs to get back to being the one in the spotlight.

These are very bad news imo.
9x27-48 floor residentials and 2x30 floor hotel towers likely to be the first phase.
The whole masterplan may be another case of the typical multi phase project where the main tower is the last thing to be built. Meaning that the 606m tower may not be started in many, many years (even 10 years).

As long as they keep that design, they can take their time.

the longer they take, the more likely this design will change.
