Interesting complex. The tallest tower looks a lot like a mix of the old and new Freedom Tower.

Old Design



New Design



Hopefully we can get frequent updates on this project.

Big project... with a kind of slight reminiscence of SWFC in the tallest tower design

I like it, who's the designer? I bet on Foster, hm?

I don't like this project very much, the shape is a little ugly in the same way as Freedom Tower, and that cheating spire piss me off. This older proposal was much more cute to me.


However, Xujiahui will get it's first supertall at last!! So, it's ok.

You mean this one?



Daewoo Business Center. It's a very, very old proposal, maybe from 1997. There is a very similar project proposed for Tianjin, btw.

Cool design !

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Impressive heightwise of course...but with all the great unbuilt designs they could choose from...they choose the ugly and mercifully discarded design for the Freedom Tower.

Don't worry guys, I will keep you updated on this tower.
