No they don't. Take a better look, they're more slender and the "spine" is missing (at least in one pic). I'd say they're (assuming they represent the same render, and are not mixed up) more similar to Gensler's, or maybe a new project...

Boy, that Shanghai Spirt is something else. Just built a supertall and already want to put it to shame with a superdupertall...LOL Think anything that they will build there will look awesome. All renders are nice and TALL.

If you build it, they will come. If you build more and better, more will come.

That's Gensler proposal. The renders posted by kix111 looks like a larger version of KPF proposal I think:

A titanic effort for sure, even for a city like Shanghai. But I believe it could repay itself in the end.

Exactly, a plank badly wrapped in aluminum foil, an unresolved shape.
