Yes, it doesn't fit to the design. But i don't think it's final yet.

I agrre, but it is also way too tall for this area. Totally disproportional.

There is hardly any area in the world where 700m+ building wouldn't stick out

Besides that, there is a +600m tower rising on the other side of the river.

Yeah at least taper it to a crown of some sort. Didn't mind it before but yeah now it just irks me. Hope they'll reconsider. Either leave it flat or make something a bit more elaborate than a stick.

On second look though it appears to be more of a broadcast antenna. I'd imagine space there would be highly desirable for signals but either way, this just looks odd with a spire stuck on.

Nah it would look kind of silly if it just had a flat top. A spire makes sense for a building with this shape.

I updated the first post of this thread with the new visualizations.


I don't know, it doesn't really look too promising to me. The new supertall in Tianjin (Termite Hill) is way superior when it comes to awe-inspiring design.

This Wuhan one seems like a Kindom Tower Jeddah ripoff, pretty much...

didn't realize they were so close. riverview plaza doesn't seem to be that far either and Wuhan Center has a 400m side tower planned as well, so the area will look extremely tall with 4x 400m monsters

I guess, by "Termite Hill" he means the Rose Rock IFC in Binhai.

Thanks, indeed, Rose Rock is the project I'm talking about.


Back to the Wuhan project.
