Hmm, looks like Ping An 2.0. Nevertheless I'm thrilled about a new 700m+ project since India Tower is on hold (or canceled?).

Really nice design. Reminds me very much of Wells Fargo Center in Minneapolis. This could be an icon for Suzhou for years to come.

I would rename it to PREP now. The demolition is over but they are still preparing the site for the tower.

This is becoming sooo exciting! But I can't believe they are starting digging, normally they would host a kitsch party with golden shovels and red carpets where they may expose the final renders. That's the press conference where they release specific details for the design, height, architect, etc.

It doesn't matter if they digging The Hole or just preparing the site, the threads tittle should still be changed to prep.

I am yet to see the design for the other tower. On the masterplan, we saw another behemoth just next to Gate of the Orient. If this is going to be at least a bit symmetrical, they will have to come up with 500m+ tower. This only means more skyscraper p0rn for us
