The Constellation Project looks really cool. But these towers are just...whatever architect responsible for these monstrosities needs to layoff on the drugs.

I really like those projects and I hope, they will build it ! The Height, the colours, the structure are amazing .

Would like to see such projects in old Europe.

Don't get your hopes up. It's probably just a marketing stunt. It happens often and they go far with it (proposals, many renders, interviews, etc)

i dont see why this is still in this board,it doesn't fit since it is a vision/concept/fantasy whatever,and almost everyone is quite certain that it wont get built,we have no solid evidence for anything outside of promotional material from the developer

At 1km high, Phoenix Towers for HuaYan Group will be the

You know the 10m floors everyone loves!! Plenty of space to set up a rock climbing wall or any other things the tenant/resident might want!

It's not really a building. Combination of power plant, observation tower and building. That's why there are so few floors.

china needs to finish the thousands of residential towers that are half built and on hold first.

Where did you get that figure from?
