Lol first one look like Russian tower had a child with one of the transformers

As for it being tv tower. The second proposal is indeed a bit too thin for a building but on the other hand first one is the complete opposite so who knows what this is eventually going to be. I guess both proposals are more of an early stage competition/vision proposals, because they don't look very serious to me. Although I would love to see the first one materialized

Well we don't know that, do we? The first design looks very much like a building and so far nobody provided any source saying it will be tv tower indeed.

Well look at it, too thin to be an office tower. Maybe it'll have a hotel, but I don't think so.

Hard to tell, I really like them both but I'm leaning towards proposal #2. The first proposal looks kinda crazy but in real life I imagine it will look really cool like the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai.

If they would have just presented the thin one I would agree, but the first one looks like a regular office tower to me which makes it quite confusing.

OK but I will say this third time here. We have two proposals here. One look like an office tower, one like a tv tower. Unless we know which is the chosen one or have other confirmation we don't know what purpose of this tower is going to be.
