I don't care if they build taller, this will be Suzhou's skyscraper icon for some time, imo.

I thought this guy will stand alone there by the lake forever...but actually it will be flanked by two even taller guys (it's bodyguards maybe).

Looks like Suzhou could even rival Guangzhou's skyline in a few years. Their avenue designs are pretty similar.

Can't believe how nearly symmetrical the layout of the CBD will be. It doesn't usually work with most cities, as it leads to an inorganic and over-planned feel in the city center. But I think it may work well in Suzhou, such a historical and scenery rich place, which could be served well by some geometric purity.

True, it sounds weird, but that right tower is maybe a bit too tall? It makes everything else look small.

I hope those planned buildings in post 387 are just for studying the potential of this area, and not for real. These designs are way too anonymous (= boring).
