The SOM Greenland Square - I remember seeing similiar designs being proposed several times. Are they building several similiar buildings around the world, or is SOM pushing the same design to several cities and seeing who'll take it?

I think that is one of my 5 favourite designs I have ever seen for a supertall project. When I see any render, I always try to think something that improved it, but this one is just perfect. I love it!

is it approved?

any more information? architect, developer?

i really like this one, it looks kinda fat but still, the facade details and roof feature are stunning.

so many developers pushing into 500m now.. but only one goes significantly beyond this point so far.

It's supposed to look like a hand, right?
I can not decide if I like it or not. Very unique though!

Nanjing is a really amazing city due to a big list of really good projects!

That Jinling Fuguang tower project looks really, really interesting, anybody with more information and renderings about the project?

I ony found that render and this capture from a local newspaper, but I don't speak Chinese, so I can't tell you anything else.



I hope it is approved. I really really love it. This tower would be Nanjing's 5th supertall, just incredible. Several Chinese cities are catching up with Shanghai in supertall projects, I just can't believe it :O

Yeah, i think this building looks really amazing too, but i would really like to see more renderings before i make my final opinion about it!

Any idea who is the architect?

Keep looking for info z0rg, your doing great!

The newspaper didn't mention the name of architect. Oh, god, it seems Nanjing will have the tallest building in asia, seven meters taller than Taibei 101, more than 20 stories than Jinmao. Interesting , the real estate developer based on Shanghai used the design, The Hand of Peace to bless Nanjing in peace forever, to remember those Nanjingers died of the second World War.

According to the Chinese newspaper provided by z0rg, it's still in the process of assessment by experts (evaluating architecture, geology, surrounding integration, etc.) which will take more than two months. We still need to wait for the final approval. But its height is 518m (according to the newspaper). I am wondering if the slender base is strong enough to support the bulkier waist.

It is obviously a hand! Look at the "fingers" height and look at yours.
