It looks a little like Chicao Trump tower indeed, which looks very much like Nanjing Greenland Plaza. So we better say that this tower looks like Nanjing Greenland Plaza.

What makes you assume Greenland Plaza came first? The earliest thread I was able to find on it in the forum came from mid 2005. The oldest I could find on Trump came from January 2003, and it sounded like it had been proposed for quite some time before that, as well, possibly even prior to Sept 11, 2001.

Wow, didn't know that the Trump Tower had been proposed so early. Nanjing GP was started in early 2005, and proposed as soon as 2003 since I remember I saw some images soon after registering. But not as soon as 2001, that's sure.

The first design had a fugly facade. The second one is better. I'm a bit more interested in what seems to be the 2nd tallest building, with all the 'holes'.

So this went from being 415m to 500m then Zorg? That's quite a jump, that means Tianjin will now have 2 500+ m buildings hypothetically speaking. Whoa, amazing!

No official info by the moment, but seems so. The structure has 110 floors plus a spire, should be above 500m. On the other hand, who knows wether it is the final design.

I agree. The other tower (Sino-Steel) "steals the show". There are 2 other projects in the model that might end up looking pretty good (the yellow one and the one to its right).

Hopefully they'll choose the other design, which looks much better and taller

The architect of this project is not good at designing but s/he must be very good at cladding designs. The facade is beautiful

One of the two proposals was designed by James Zheng at Goettsch & Partners, but dont know which one.
