Wuhan Riverfront Erqi Parcel

Wuhan, China

SOM’s multi-disciplinary approach to city building makes a global statement at Wuhan’s Erqi district. Architecture, structural engineering and city design came together to create a new green, transit-oriented riverfront business district, cultural center, and residential community connected to a landscaped public park along the Yangtze River.

China’s tallest tower rising from a central cultural park, a green heritage trail angling through the new district to a revered Revolutionary site, and a serpentine, tree-lined pedestrian and bicycle bridge flowing to the riverfront park are all part of a new 90-hectare commercial center for Wuhan.

This livable, walkable redevelopment is centered on an iconic 707-meter mixed-use tower of office, hotel and residential, and the world’s tallest observation deck at a height of 668 meters.

Project Facts

Site Area: 83.60 hectares
Project Area: 2,600,000 m2

668 meters could even stay highest observatory when Kingdom Tower is built, at least looking at a diagram the observatory also looks to be between 650m and 700m.

The top section doesn't seem to have much floors. So i guess 100+ floors ok, but not over 130.

i am suspecting the top section is like a tower, not many floors, just an elevator up to the top observation deck, maybe restaurant.

sorry for bumping the thread, no major news but this project is now on CTBUH.

It's listed as Wuhan Riverfront Erqi Tower, should the thread title be changed?
It seems to definitely be a building as well for those who thought this one might be a tower (because of how thin it is).
Here's the link http://skyscrapercenter.com/wuhan/wu...i-tower/14382/

At least "Riverfront Erqi Tower" would sound alot better than the current title.

I think so. Wuhan already has many tall buildings, a booming economy, and a desire to do well and show this to the rest of China and the world.

I would wager this gets built, to 700 metres and with the 688 observation deck.

+1.

Exactly what I said in one of the earlier posts in the thread.

I guess not much information will be on this tower since the proposal does not stand solid and that it will take years.
