SHENZHEN | Future City Project | ~700m | ~2300ft | 163 fl | Pro

Developer: Glory Harvest Group. Concept architect: Capol International
http://www.hygj.cn/newsDetail.aspx?id=647
http://www.gloryharvestgroup.com/sit...=1418&pid=1351

Concept render. The design is irrelevant, pay attention to heights and distribution only.

108 floors with a crown? Looks like 500m+ to me!

Yes, 500m is not unlikely here

There're another 5~ supertall projects on going, including another 100+ floor tower. We'll open threads for them as we get enough info.

i don't expect a megatall at 108 floors. it's possible with a tall spire but unlikely i think. i go for 450 to 550m

I hope that is just a filler design, I don't think it's very original.

Yeah looks that way, this doesn't seem to be a major announcement compared to other Chinese Projects

Hopefully it is a decent design

Plan A: Build a 108 floor tower.
Plan B: Build a 108 floor tower and a 100 floor tower.
http://www.gloryharvestgroup.com/sit...=1418&pid=1351

Plan B scheme


And another concept render for Plan A (no renders for Plan B, sorry)

I prefer Plan B!
A 100 floor tower is a nice "give-away".

Who needs a Plan A when Plan B is clearly the better one?
