This one is located at 北临民生路,东临沿江大道,南面紧邻长航大厦,西面为黄陂街。与武昌积玉桥商圈隔江相望。Hope we can get pics of the plot soon.

Very far away. This one is very close to the Custom House building. Greenland masterplan is in Wuchang.

Yeah I know, I'm a bit dissapointed in myself. I haven't been to Wuchang for almost a year, but I have no excuse for not getting some updates from wangjiadun and the few other Hankou projects.

Ground breaking ceremony. 330m according to the press.

Look at the render in the background. I think they chose WADI, and GMP lost.

Why does a bank have to be so tall? Prestige.

I think it's just the name. Just office space, not necessarily exclusive for shipping companies.

Possible upwards revision to "450m+, 88 floors". Figures from the developer's website in addition to new renders.

I figured it out!

it looks quite strange, but i like it, because i'm sure when the cladding is nicely done with glass it will look amazingly futuristic and when i just think about Wuhan and its plans for the 606m greenland building then it will be a city that will look like it was visited by aliens, i really like it. very creative.
