HEFEI | Evergrande IFC | 518m | 1699ft | 112 fl | U/C

Architect: Atkins. Actually this is one of the rejected designs for Guangzhou East Tower. Evergrande has been using it for concept displays for years, now it seems they're actually using it.

lol. It sure looks like that.

Designwise, this is just a fancy shape, nothing special.

What a project!
Haven't seen such a design for a supertall ever before as far as I can remember
I wonder how this one will look once built...

Now they are even building 500m+ supertalls in Hefei???

I've actually been there 2 years ago and it was certainly the poorest and least developed provincial capital I ever visited in China. Is there honestly a demand for those kind of buildings there?

Very empty area. It looks like you would have to travel pretty far to reach this destination from the city.
