GUANGZHOU | R&F Yingkai Square | 296m | 972ft | 66 fl | Com

Goettsch Partners designs Park Hyatt Guangzhou mixed-use tower

Goettsch Partners has been commissioned by Guangzhou R&F Properties Co. to design a new 1,000-foot-tall mixed-use building in Guangzhou, China. The project totals 1,878,000 square feet and features a 180-key Park Hyatt hotel, 430,000 square feet of offices, 65,000 square feet of retail, 24 condominiums, 174 serviced apartments, and underground parking for 700 cars. The 66-storey building is located in the Zhujiang development, planned as Guangzhouĺs new city center, near the Pearl River. The tight, two-acre site sits over a transit station at the intersection of two subway lines, with neighboring buildings that include the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou, also designed by Goettsch Partners; the cityĺs new opera house; the new Guangdong Museum; and what will be Chinaĺs tallest twin towers at more than 1,300 feet. The Park Hyatt tower is designed as a single volume that pinches in at the corners in relation to the changing programmatic functions stacked within. The field of staggered vertical strips on the fašade stretches and compresses like tendons in response to the varying floor-to-floor heights required for each distinct function. The approximately $150 million project is currently in the schematic design phase and is expected to be completed in 2010.

Hmm... I'd like it more if it wasn't so square. Taking bites out of a box doesn't make it any more interesting.

Only Park Hyatt?!? That means the Grand Hyatt must be bigger and better?

1 GZ TV Tower
2,3 GZ Twins
4 CITIC Plaza
5 Pearl River Tower
6 Leatop Plaza
7 Park Hyatt
8 B2-10 plot
9 B1-6 plot
10??

I'm missing something I think. Please update

Btw, I noticed they added a concrete height for B1-6 plot already in some plans. Did they release the design for that plot already? Please post info if you have

I dont think worldarchiteturenews.com invented the height, they surely obtained the figure directly from the architects.
