Design contest might be coming sooner than we think. Plot distribution under planning now.

since we got different designs already i was not expecting a design contest, but that is actually for the better, because the designs we had were quite cool, but not blowing us away in terms of design.

"Concept" is a lot more tame than the word I would have used.

Thanks to an object like that, no one has stolen my bicycle yet. Not sure if that means my lock deserves a megatall tribute, though.

That would be amazing! 2 mega supertalls connected at the top. It would look huge.

I doubt this will be a megatall with this design, but I agree the main tower looks awesome . But I am not sure about the other towers.

That concept has a clear lecture: they want 500m+ twins ...

i do like connected twins, i do like unique designs that we never had before. but for me this looks like the waterdoors you have to walkthru before entering a waterpark area from a green space. it is certainly a creative, but not really elegant shape to me. maybe over time it will grow on me and i will start to love it, but i still would prefer a different design.

tall twins are rare, so 500m+ twins would be awesome!

I don't really like this design even though it's iconic and Shenzhen really needs more iconic structures.
It doesnt look right with Kingkey100 and Shun Hing Square and so it wouldnt form a great trinity like in Pudong...
Maybe they should make it taller and set the twins 2 times closer.
