the other tower is set to be 400m+ at the moment, design will be independant from this one and probably not start for a longer time for now. in the beginning it seemed to be proposed as a twin tower project with one being taller than the other, but that idea seems to have been scratched in a far earlier stage than what we saw in Guangzhou, where we still had the twin tower concept up to the point until the first one was standing already.

The one on the far right looks like it would be most at home next to Taipei 101 for some reason. lol

the one of the right kind of has this medieval architecture style i think, kinda like it as well. but if the one on the news is indeed the final design it is a good choice i think, of course roof height up to the top would be amazing, but i think something similar to ping an is sweet as well, after all it will probably be over 750m, so a spire is fine with me.

This one is good too, but designed for the same plot, not that the shape (or at least the base) couldn't be mirrored for the other plot across the square.

yeah that is one of the most impressive designs. that design with a height over 700m is amazingly awesome, but in the end having a design similar to Ping An seems more realistic to me, since it does save money.

but just imagine this design and for the other plot the arch-topped with the pool design and both have a height over 700m that would be most amazing

Yeah. What I think I like the most about it is that even though it's almost as tall as burj it still has a shape of a normal building not a three wing pyramid shape like burj.
