I think the three are bunched up too much together and will block each other out. Wonder what the wind tunnel tests were for this clustering.

Besides, it also seems to be a luxury waste to put the three giants together
Any of them could be a landmark somewhere else

Not a waste at all. Do remember Lujiazui is the only finance and trade zone under the state development system. There is alot of tax incentives to do business there, and such little space to do so. That is why they are building tall.

i guess so, but imagine putting 2IFC, ICC and Bank of china all together? The good thing about this though i guess is that they all get their own plots. So no matter how close they are, they will be separated by roads, wide ones as well. gives them a bit more space

They're just going to steal the attention from each other. Even a few more blocks' spacing would create a much fuller skyline, and make each building stand out even more.

Meh lets be honest if it was pure for the available space we would have seen Japanese-like skyscraper blocks that uses every centimeter of the available space and that HUGE parking lot next to SWFC would certainly not be there.

It's just one part of the story, the other part is called prestige.

Shenyang Finance and Trade Development Zone

Shenyang Finance and Trade Development Zone is a tertiary industry development zone, which was established in April 1992 by the Shenyang Municipal Government and the Party Committee. According to the overall arrange*ment of the city development plan, the original target and purpose for this establishment is to reconstruct old districts in the city proper, speed up the development of a window area, enhance opening up, improve investment environment and meet the need of vigorous economic growth.

Shenyang Finance and Trade Development Zone, the tertiary industry development zone, is the only one of its type in China apart from Lujiazui Finance and Trade Development Zone in a Shanghai.
It is both the core of Shenyang Central Business District (CBD) and the regional center of finance, commerce & trade and infor*mation in North-east China. The Zone is located in the city's center at the intersection of four big districts, enjoying convenient transportation. Shenyang North Railway Station inside the Zone is one of the most important passenger trans*portation hubs in China. More than 10 city bus lines run through the Zone linking to 5 national class roads and 6 provincial class roads. The biggest airport in Northeast China is Shenyang Taoxian International Airport, which is only 20km away from the Zone.

The Zone covers an area of 1.12 million square meters, 0.6 million of which is available for con*struction. Total designed investment is over RMB 20 billion yuan The administration of the Zone plans to attract capital home and abroad to set up over 60 modern, multi-functional and symbolic skyscrapers in the Zone. After 10 years' development and construction, the Zone has taken on a new look. Fangyuan Mansion, Shenyang New Hong Kong-Macao International Plaza, China Industrial and Commercial Bank, Liaoning Branch, Sumitomo Bank, Carrefour, Gloria Hotel and so on are all established in the Zone. It had completed a contracted transfer of more than 400,000 square meters of land and introduced 43 big projects. The foreign capital utilized amounts to over USD200 million.

With the implementation of Shenyang CBD project, Shenyang Finance and Trade Devel*opment Zone will do its utmost to become the regional center of commerce & trade in North*east China, and win the recognition of all cli*ents home and abroad.

Lovely tower!

How many tons of concrete have been poured into that "hole" to fill it up please, it looks just crazy!

I think the "cluster" suits Shanghai personally. Hong Kong island's long concave waterfront is naturally suited to an even distribution over supertalls but Shanghai's smaller convex waterfront facing the Bund is suited to the buildings rising to a peak in the center.
