This one?


Or this one?

The First design is AS+GG, The second is SOM. Both look good.

and the nice bridge. However, i hope they build inwards as well, that will make it look even more like Gz skyline. Take away the boxes that they have proposed and put more smaller yet iconic buildings, then you would have gotten Gz mixed with Hk = Wuhan skyline hahaha

from the z0rgs link (translated by google):

"According to reports, Wuhan Green Center building is the first phase of the project investment of about 10.5 billion, construction area of ​​700,000 square meters, is expected to completed in 6."

Thats quite contrary to what z0rg posted a while back, that the first phase of the project would be residential area, and so we would have to wait even years for the tower itself to start.

Thats some great news z0rg

Hopefully it's true. Also some forumers believe that they are adding a second supertall to the project, that will be finished before the main one is started.

Hi all.

OK - what's with the 2 Greenland Centers, one in Wuhan and one in Dalian ?

Same developer ?

Edit.
I guess I should have done some reading first ...
This Greenland Group - they are going to build 5 supertalls in different cities ?


Ray.

So is it confirmed, is this the direct site of the 600m tower? If so, it will be awesome to have another 600m tower to watch in the same time along with shanghai tower, and Ping An IFC
