Models of Wangjiadun CBD, by RickBlaine. The new layout looks even more stunning. They expect 680m~ for the main plot.

from the other thread. the background behind the model seems to have the same main tower. the model itself looks different though. probably still very concept.

for completed + U/C buildings, Wuhan is first place for buildings over 400m with 3 under construction (sharing the place with Dubai, Shanghai and Tianjin) and Wuhan has one more currently in prep work and we all know about the half dozen megatalls that are proposed in the city aswell

The towers look almost cylindrical in that model. Pretty cool designs though.

WOW! THOSE are GOOD DESIGNS! I mean, the proposed one is really good, too (and I hope it's built), but these are REALLY GOOD!

Does anyone think it's at least a little disrespectful to call this place a "World Trade Center"? Because in my opinion, there should only be one "World Trade Center" in the world, and that's in Lower Manhattan, New York, not in Asia.

The term World Trade Center should be localized to only one location? That would make the name meaningless, no?

I already saw that list WAY before you posted it. There's even a Taipei World Trade Center!

If nobody's offended by that name, I guess I don't have to be; I wonder how 911 victims feel about this.

There are so may buildings with that name is it just a name or a conspiracy to cause offense? When does the feelings of one group take precedence over all others? Is the real issue the name of the building or the location of the building?
