Another massive skyline out of the blue. Impressive plan with a nice park between the towers.

Shanghai's Yangtze River Delta brothers(or sisters[Suzhou, Wuxi, Changzhou, Zhenjiang]) are joining the ranks filling up their own skylines.

120 floors
100 floors
75 floors
60 floors
50 floors

Since this is a masterplan the project is very likely to be developed in phases imo. Concept designs, so don't make a fuss about the designs.

If the render for the main tower were accurate, with that huge roof structure it should reach 650m quite easily.

for 120 floors i also think a megatall isn't unlikely. well unless it has no spire nor crown whatsoever in the end.

The tower in the render has a big crown. Anyway these are mere concept renders, their looking is irrelevant.
