not many sources. without a location and just a little poorly detailed model, It is really to early to say if this proposal can be taken seriously. I really do hope we get a new tower for Hong Kong though. The city needs a come back to stay in the game.

Hate to be pessimistic but I suspect this is likely to be more of a design study than anything else given the lack of info. It's not even on TFP Farrells' website....

Yeah, it looks more like a vision / concept than a real proposal. Sure would be great for Hong Kong to get back in the supertall game, especially with such a monster.
