Why a tobacco tower? Nice tower, but bad name.

In the 5th picture, on the right of the twin towers, you can see the NYC skyline: Pelli's world financial center; one astor plaza (the one with the 4-pointed roof) and the Chrysler Building!!!!!!

Nearly the world financial centre.... they have photoshopped the dome and pyramid from the top!!! Perhaps they are moving them there....?

Absolutely great looking projects. There isn't a one I don't like and wouldn't mind having here in little young Minneapolis. I also noticed the WFC buildings but didn't notice the Chrysler.

I love Guangzhou.

Most renders I posted before are projects along this huge avenue:


Everybody has listened about Pudong (Shanghai), now you must remember this name too: Tianhe district. One of the key CBD's of the coming Asian Century. Here is a more general render:


Check this thread keep updated.

You can also see this booming district in Google Earth:
23° 7'33.99"N
113°19'9.70"E

Why is that? I highly doubt that terrorists are interested in China at all. In fact, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur are also close together, yet they were not a target of terrorist attacks either. The events in the United States should not be a deterrent to building two tall buildings close together.

So far, low posture of China on international affairs would not bring her so much trouble like terrorism

Well not really low posture but China doesn't really put its nose in other people's internal affairs unlike the the Americans or Brits. Chinese seperate politics from business that is why it has such friendly ties with the Arab world.

Nothing is fishy, the project itself is real, but background renders in some might not be accurate. All that matter is the actual project, renders in the background is nothing more than to make the overall render look good.
