A couple of weeks ago, a forumer working in the project posted at skyscrapers.cn that the final design would be released on April 18th, tomorrow!! However, some days later he said that it will be delayed again, probably because they will revise the height upwards before releasing the final project. Gensler is rumoured to be the chosen design, but who knows.

Gensler is supposed to be the winner. Can't confirm, no official. No height or no. of floors.

New renders, posted by 水中的玻璃杯













The first render is the best to guess the height imo. Looks to be 100-150m higher than SWFC.

Meh, it's a good second tier type mega tall.

Would have been mega impressive pre-Dubai, but post Dubai, well it's not about to compete with the Al Burj or even the Burj Dubai.

To that extent this is a generic mega tall in my books, much like the SWFC, tall but not tall enough to be famous to the layperson.

Design is good of course, but not iconic, doesn't resolve very well up top.

Good design, but usable floorspace to height and foot print is gonna be painfully small. That entire gap besteen the exterior and interor facade seems really big.

Like a shark I've never seen a thread reaches 1000 posts before its final design is released.

I think the design is sth similar to Foster's Commerzbank Headquarters, the space maybe a part of internal environmental control system to reduce energy consumption.



Wait for more details to confirm.
