Brilliant structure. I love the design. Hopefully they will actually build it as it appears here, whoever designed this is a genius.

Doubt they're gonna do it in this design, we don't know the funding sources and this is just a conceptual render, the design probably will change/shorten to probably just 350m. The demand just isn't there for a 500m tower in Tianjin, it doesn't have as much demand as Beijing or Shanghai for office space or residentials since people are content to live in their clonic commieblocks, and there's already two other supertalls being built, one of which is 570m! By the time this tower gets actually proposed and not just a conception the demand will be satisfied by the huge amount of towers already going up in Tianjin :}.

Which one would that be? The St Regis, 336m, is under construction, the WTC, 300 M, is stalled, the westin, 280 m, is being built, and quite a few others in the 200-300 range, but nothing, that I'm aware of, approaching 570m.

Never mind, just saw the other thread here. Wow, that's crazy. I can walk to where that one is being built from my house. Crappy location choice for it though, as it's nowhere near downtown. Might be somewhat close to the new subway line, though.

Do you have any render of The Westin? Never heard of it I think.

Tianjin is so deeply uncovered, we really need some local support

Do you know when are they starting Sino-Steel Tower (333m, 80fl), TEDA Towers (356m, 80 floors), and R&F Morgan Building (360m, 415m including spire)? I read some months ago that they are also redisigning Yan Zhao Building (378m, 100 floors). Any news?

I know they are starting Xiao Bai Lou Union Plaza (73 floors) soon. How tall is it? We should open a thread for it if it's taller than 300m.

I'm talking about for the 570m tower, China 117 Tower (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=558031). And I was referring to supertalls in Tianjin city only, where there's China 117 Tower and Tianjin Tower U/C and Tianjin WTC stalled. (What's the St. Regis? Never heard of it.)

St. Regis = [The Tian]Jin Tower I think.

The Westin is also called Tianjin Emperor Palace. It's on Nanjing Lu, and is set to be 260m or 280m tall, I think.

Who knows how many square meters (or hectares to be more appropriate!) of floor area this behemoth proposal contains!
