More renders. They didn't credit the source.

Well... Looks pleasing, but not really sure what to think of this so far. Any concept what it'll be used for?

Well I like it, but it looks like the concept from the first page. Does it mean it will be replaced in future?

that looks extremely thin, nearly like a tower instead of a skyscraper but then again it is extremely tall and the dimensions may trick the viewer. And also it is just an early design and it may change anyway. from the style it looks cool, i just think it is quite thin.

Thinner it is, taller it looks, why do some people have a problem with this. I think this design looks sexy as hell. If I were to choose between Shanghai tower and this, I would choose this. For the record, Shanghai tower is also sexy.

Is this designed by Norman and Foster or something, cuz the patterns in the lower half look similar to Russia tower.

Also, why is it that in some renders the upper floors looks inhabitable (looks like a complicated truss design) while in other renders the upper floors look habitable. render issues or p.o.v issues i guess.

Zorg, were those pictures uploaded recently, then that means this project is headed in the right direction.

BTW, where in Wuhan is this proposed development area?

I think whoever design firm wins the proposal, they can come up with innovative designs for the projects. Designs we haven't seen in any skyscraper/supertall projects before.

Has that design already come to the final decision?

i still do hope that the top part of the buiding is not a crown or spire, but still has floors in it. although design may probably change anyway.

hopefully very, definitely one of my favourites. This is exactly why I was gutted to see the height increase for Greenland, this is 707m, Greenland was 606m, and there's the 404m one as well. It was so well structured until they got jealous of Shanghai and refused to accept Shenzhen's existence
