TIANJIN | Nanjing Lu Supertall | 500m+ | 1640ft+ | 130 fl | Canceled

Previously, they proposed a 422m twin tower project. They changed that for a single megatall proposal


Models of the new project











Hope they'll release concrete renders soon and build it! The models are just conceptual, so don't bash the design for being too simple

The greenery is conceptual too. That area is fully urbanized, and booming like crazy now.

Since it's a conceptual prop the final design (if approved) probably wont have much to do with that model. But I agree with you, I like it like that very much, it's so massive and elegant!

correct me,the uber skyscraper tend to be unstable.and the danger of accidentally hit by aircraft.
second for city like Tianjin,the building 130 floor skyscraper is simple sheer madness,60~70 floors will do.

Not a big fan of this tower. Kind of boring.

It better be stable. That city was destroyed by an earthquake in 1976. Hundreds of thousands killed.

I think you were talking about another Chinese city, Tangshan (not Tianjin), which was destroyed by the earthquake.

It was the "Tangshan earthquake", but also badly damaged Tientsin--now known as Tianjin. I bring it up because there have been articles posted suggesting Chinese buildings are not being built with maximum earthquake resistance.

Anyone else loving the fact that threads titled '465ft/150m' used to be common, now it's more likely to be '465m/150fl'
