haha....there's no such thing as too tall on this forum!

I want to see this project go forward. I've haven't been to Wuhan yet, from what I've heard it's a very nice city.

If they do something with the top of this, it could become a real stunner.

Wow, I just love how it dwarfs the other skyscrapers (?) by so much! It looks so dominating!

I just checked the google earth images. A lot of buildings have been demolished where they plan to build this...

The tall slim pyramid design shown in the first few pages does not look good.

Since the concept tower was already above 700m, this one has real potential and the developers will know about the other megatall rising, so if they want the tallest in the city, it must be megatall

New renders and description from SOM
Now titelt as "The Wuhan Jiang’an Riverfront Business District"
Looks Incredible awseome

Project Facts
Location: Wuhan, China
Design Completion: 2011
Site Area: 83.60 hectares
Project Area: 2,600,000 m2
Market: Master Plan, Mixed Use
Service: Architecture, Structural + Civil Engineering, Urban Design + Planning

Quote:
The Wuhan Jiang’an Riverfront Business District master plan establishes an expanded vision for sustainable development along the Yangtze River. Situated on a former railyard and factory site in Wuhan, China, the brownfield redevelopment incorporates industrial heritage and historic monuments into a reimagined urban fabric, most notably a nod to the historic railway worker’s uprising in 1923 that led to the formation of China’s dominant political party today.

The completion of the development’s landmark building — dubbed the Erqi or 2-7 Tower — could be timed to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of that watershed moment. In addition to recalling local history, the project will also offer a mixed-use, transit-oriented approach to urban redevelopment in China.

To me it looks like the Kingdom tower but with more class and sophistication. Now that's how you build a megatall ... I mean I wish this one was 1000m+
