Jingling Tower, Nanjing

I was visiting the skyscraper exhibition "Dream of Tower" in Copenhagen and discovered a Chinese supertall I have never heard about: Jingling Tower in Nanjing.


320m, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Expected completion 2008. It also has an innovative design.

Anyone has better renderings or know its status?

Interesting article Nightsky. I don't know much about this project, exept that Nanjing Jinling Hotel Group Co., Ltd., invited several architects to a architectural competition to the new hotel. Atkins has a proposal, this one.

May be it is a proposal for a design of this hotel, with other words the same building. I read that it is mixed use and there is a hotel in it.

It was designed by SOM for Hotel use, now I think it's been cancled.

If it was cancelled I can't understand why it was on the exhibition.

Jinling Tower

I co-designed the tower for the competition while at SOM. What do you want to know about it?

That one was rejected, they chose SOM's design. China loves SOM for some reason.

@Nightsky, you can see more renders of this project at Nanjing Compilation thread. No u/c pics yet, sorry. I'll post if I find.
