Masterplan render. You can see the 404m tower.

I've seen this render several times before in this thread.
Not to mention the one posted above doesn't look like much of a design or render at all. It's transparent for crying out loud.

i still think we have not seen any final render yet. The model also does look quite conceptual. i think they pushed that design out to go with the main tower so they didn't have to put a generic box beside it. and in the latest render it is just a filler concept, which also strenghens me in the thought that the first design wasn't final, because it is was why wouldn't they have filled that one in the render.

I agree. Probably same story as East Tower, final version will be totally different.

The model of the 404m tower seems to narrow too quickly. Waste of floor space for a building of it size, plus it looks unappealing.

Like the Ping An project on Shenzhen I keep forgetting there is supposed to be a supertall built next to the main tower.
