Sending good vibes they will hire the right architect should CTF Suzhou proceed.

Which 3 CTF projects were started? Only GZ and TJ afaik.

The Suzhou one is great news. Hopefully they'll try to go even taller than the former twin tower as they did with their GZ project. About Qianhai, I'm sceptic height-wise.

Seems like I misinterpreted the pictures. I thought this one has the status 'demo' now.
And yes, likely their Qianhai project won't be so tall because of the airport restrictions, but ~300m is possible I think (pure speculation).

this project indeed is Demo now, we should change the title. But Demo isn't really U/C. It's just a good sign that it might become U/C

In a way it has similar elements to Wuhan Center, which is quite nice

That's what I thought too. Similar but in this case for being so tall and needing a similar structural system, that's not a bad thing.

And Chow Tai Fook is a serious developer, we are to expect something serious here.

while I do have no worries of them not being serious, please keep in mind that this development seems to be far from starting.

1. The roads aren't even finished.
2. Demolition is only halfway done.
3. This is a huge project and the surrounding buildings might be in an earlier phase.

A lot design changes can still happen in the next few years before prep work starts.

Long term then. But remember Wuhan's Greenland. It looked totally vision once.

Yes, it seems they will all go away for this and more new development.

I think (and hope) the megatall itself is in a spot that is already clear, but side towers need more demolition for sure.

edit: looking at google maps again and comparing to the overview picture on the last page, it looks like it still needs demolition for the main tower as well (at least at the time the satellite picture was taken).

Screen Caps from the video. The design looks the same as the curvy model posted before, the other render looked a little bland so this could be the final design.
