i wish they would have made all spires the same height or have removed the smaller spires and put the two remaining on opposite ends. other than that i really enjoy the design though.

Is there any reason - besides architectural ones - why there are setbacks on the antennas?

Ah, so this is where the project went (had to search several pages of threads for it). Nice to see it's moving ahead.

would this count as neo art deco?
whatever style it technically is, it is an amazing design!

^Sexy render. Is there any confirmation of the 500m height rumor that's been floating around?

havn't heard of that rumor, but i think the design is pretty final. if they increase the size it may only be a change of the spire/antenna

great render. it has indeed some similarities to Sears tower, but it has its own style too.

Kind of looks like Willis Tower and Zifeng Tower had a child!

Hmmm....

It is in Binhai, where they build a totally new "CBD" which is approx. 50km east of Tianjin CBD/old town...
so, shouldn't the title be like: " BINHAI | Tianjin R&F Guangdong Tower | 468m | 1535ft | 91 fl | U/C "
and why they call the tower not "Binhai R&F Guangdong Tower" ???

I understand that Binhai is a city inside Tianjin Shi , which is a direct-controlled municipality of the PRC,
but it's 50 km away from Tjianjin City itself.

Maybe i get confused cos i always consider Tianjin as a kind of Province with many cities, like Chongqing.

This might be wrong, but somehow it's just confusing when u search for the building site on googlemaps,
and don't find it cos u search in Tianjin instead in Binhai, just coz there is no Binhai mentioned in the title

.

Yeah, it is a bit weird that Binhai is considered part of Tianjin.
When I was making my maps, I considered whether or not to make Binhai separate because of the distance. It is further away from Tianjin proper than Shenzen is from Hong Kong! Actually a better comparison would probably be Seoul and Incheon because Hong Kong is actually completely separated from Shenzen.

I am no fan of these spires though. On Willis they also look misplaced.

i agree, i prefer the one spire design over 4, and the 4 spires should have the same height or same height for diagonal ones, but like this it looks weird. no spires at all might look best though, maybe a little crown structure on top instead.
