SHENZHEN | Qianhai Horoy Tower - Conrad Hotel | 325m | 1066ft | U/C

Allegedly by KPF, but I couldn't find a source.

I am 99% sure this is the plot of the former "phase 2" of Excellence Qianhai Towers which was supposed to have a tower of 300m. Glad to see it will be even a little taller Correct me if I'm wrong though, I'm really curious where else this plot would be located then.

any paint explanations what makes you so sure, I'm trying to figure the plots out, but without the only topped out escellence qianhai 170m side towers as reference in the background it's quite difficult :p

edit: it would fit to the angled street though, but all of the building around in that render are different, do you think this is just an old render for what is now Excellence?

edit edit: i think i know why you are 99%, just found the models again, now it makes sense!

Exactly, it fits perfectly with this new scale model Also the plot shape is pretty remarkable which immediately made me think of the former Excellence plot.

Very nice.
The whole Qianhai development is so huge, do we have a thread about this? Qianhai masterplan?

You are correct.

History fun fact: Excellence acquired both parcels of land (red AND green) on the same day. They were the first pieces of land ever sold in the whole of Qianhai.

Excellence went on to build the red plot in-house. The green plot is outsourced to Horoy to build (supertall location on the yellow). Ownership is still held by Excellence.

This one is 293m tall, not 325m according to CTBUH:

The design for the main tower is by Goettsch Partners:

I would be happy if the proposed design for the main tower stays 325m tall, but I am afraid the article I posted is more recent since it is from 16th september of 2016.
Edit: It looks like it is not the same project or (what is more likely since the project I posted also contains a Conrad Hotel and the location in the renders look really, really similar) CTBUH listed this tower twice:

As far as I can see, none of the photos is showing the main tower. It appears the most construction activity is happening in the corner on the opposite end, and the rising structure should be just some ~100m side tower.
