Fantastic design! I love the top. More organic looking than the big hole in the SWFC.

So, yesterday I took a walk around this area, and there is a lot of construction. It felt like just one square mile of nothing but dug up ground. I think the holes I took pictures of are the right ones, I didn't see the signs...


This is standing near the Port Passenger Terminal looking South/West (I think)


Frame of reference: The stadium in the top left of this picture would be just off to the left of the first picture.

At this point it's very clear they are building the secondary towers only, so the thread is back to proposals subforum

Hi all.

Wow - China is really pumping out the projects.

Although I do like the second render, I like the first more.

The first reminds me of 'The Tower' in the movie Towering Inferno - one of the factors that made me a skyscraper lover as a kid.


Ray.

Cut and paste of 大连市 (Dalian's) up and coming 超高层 (supertalls).



Based on approximate height and width comparisons to near by buildings. Dalian Eton towers are lower because they are actually at a lower elevation than their secondary towers. The proposed Greenland Center is the same elevation as the Wanda Towers (tallest 279m, black buildings just to the left of GC).

So, I took the cutout, tried to make it just slightly thicker than the Wanda Towers, then placed GCs center mark just below the tops of them. GC and Wanda are both at the same elevation.

Do you think the GC looks too big?

I am guessing that the hole (mainly pictured in the second and third) is for the main tower, right?
