The Fortune Finance Centre is a ripoff of Moscow's Federation complex.

Qianjiang is a good name: it means "River of Money".

The name is nothing to do with Money, it's just a short of Qian Tang Jiang.

i liv in china and the construction of skyscrapers here is just insane, they r everywhere, theres probly almost nowhere in china u can go and not see one, to me, this project just seems like one of the hundred others going on in pretty much all chinese cities, the problem is that all chinese cities just look so similar and the fact that are all building skyscrapers at similar rates is just going to keep that the same.

Oh my f***, i simply dont have words to describe.
All the towers look so elegant and beautiful, not too overdone.
China is great.
The amount of construction which is going on in china is just unbearable.

Nice, needn't be tall, but just nice...

I think it's time to stop the race of taller and taller but nicer and nicer

How can you compare Dubai to China? Dubai is only equal to ONE medium sized city in China. There are hundreds of Dubais in China.

Qianjiang a district in the city of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. The reason Qianjiang is called a city is direct mistranslation from Chinese. i.e. In Chinese, something city does not necessarily mean that it is a proper city, it can be a part of a city, if you know what I mean (a bit confusing, I know)..

That I don't know, I hope people from Hangzhou would answer your questions.

btw, I think buildings in Hangzhou has strict height limitations, just as in Xi'an, correct me if I am wrong.
