I'm referring to this.



Any way you want to slice and dice it, it's a Le Corbusier, skyscraper-in-a-park, and even though I like it, I find it awkward for this reason.

Beijing isn't skyscraper in the park, it is skyscraper in the parking lot.

I looks like this building is doing it's best to keep up with the Wuhan Greenland Center for construction speed.

btw, When are they going to start that rainbow shaped tower? That should be really exciting to watch get built once it starts.

The looping tower in the model is getting a lot of attention but the one to the left that looks like an alien egg is very futuristic and just as interesting. I hope that one gets built.

^ It seems you have no idea whatsoever about construction. They poured the raft approximately 12 months ago. Considering the size of the basement levels, the number of underground floors, and the structural requirements for a 500m tower this is very very fast progressing!

This is indeed true, although parking is mostly underground.

However, what else would there be in a Chinese city? Its' not like Beijing has any real rivers for a riverfront, and its' got way way too many people for any pedestrian streets to be pleasant. What can Beijing do about the commie blocks? They've already torn half of them down, but the bunch left now are too expensive or too legislatively hard to tear down.

I do kind of wish China would stop building all these eccentric buildings and boring glass towers and try to build up some neo-Chinese architecture. They already are doing it in the Gaobeidian village just east of this construction site, but it doesn't get much attention, as they're not skyscrapers.
