Absolutely, very innovative and could be a signature piece for this up and coming city, instead of emulating some1 else. I'm sure it will have some breath taking feature such as a suspended observation deck or sky restaurant to crown the piece.

I thought what we are looking at now are monotonous simply because many architectural flourishes have not been placed on the tower skeletons yet. But by the look of the render, most of the buildings have nearly identical modern 70'sish design, none of which really stands out. Are these final renderings, or just place holders?

Well if they're mostly glass, they won't look 70's, they will be very modern.

i can't really agree. I am pretty sure it will look amazing in a few years and not too boxy at all.

And I say it will look awesome because it mostly WILL BE boxy. I hate skylines like for example moscow have where every tower is trying to be iconic landmark. The idea of landmarks is that they suppose to stand out from the crowd, and how they can do it if every tower is trying to be the icon? Most of the towers in the skyline has to look normal if we expect great results. Take the NYC: most of the towers are old boring boxes there and yet I believe it's one of the best (if not the best) skylines in the world. If all towers are "unique" and "outstanding" that only makes chaos and ruin the skyline.

Agreed, I like the American style dense boxy skylines, not really into a bunch of buildings with weird shapes (except ST).

So is this the only example of a major scraper-dense district being built from scratch all at once?

no, skyscrapers in Guangzhou New CBD are not built at the same time all at once. While some are already completed for years some are still years from T/O. In Tianjian it is like a real world sim-city
