This is less than 300m from my home in Shenzhen.

Not certain it is good for the area, OCT has been one of the most desirable places for living in Shenzhen for the last 2 decades, free of any large office buildings, with lower population density whilst having large area of green space throughout

well, it looks like this tower will incoorporate a lot of greenspace as well and look very modern, so it might not be too bad of a thing.

I'm always a bit sceptical about trees in towers:

i meant the gardens and parklike surrounding of the tower, not the greens inside the tower itself

Whoa, very impressive. Love to see it in the US, maybe as a companion to Hearst Tower in NY.

Now finally China proposes some quality architecture in 300m range. Really nice. We have tons of 300m chinese towers in this section but rarely anything good. This is a very nice exception. Just hope this is final design and they won't change it for something cheap.

I must say there are quite a few cool designs in Shenzhen and this is definitely one of them.

So, is this KPF version also 319 m tall, or any height difference? Seems KPF is getting couple of good commissions in Shenzhen after PingAn

The 'Hearst-like' design (not the one on post #34) looks kind of like the NAZA Tower in Kuala Lumpur .

Please post proof that it is this design.

Every day people are making claims and a lot of times it turns out to be not true.

So, not to attack you personally But it would be nice if you could post a source.

I agree. Especially that the previous design was soooo much better. I can only hope they won't go again with the usual chinese scheme of replacing iconic design with a mediocre one.

I'm not sure if the KPF design is so inferior. I would like to see renders from beside instead of below to judge this.

I am the lead architect of the project, also Ping An and several others. Appreciate your feedback, the design is still a work in progress. Follow on twitter @ChinaTall and www.behance.net/DavidMalott
