Huh? Skyscrapers are the most environmentally friendly buildings, they use resources the most efficiently.

Yeah, haven't you heard? Don't. Feed. The. Troll.

Anyway, this tower's going to be pretty sick. I keep forgetting, are they going with the fins or the diamond on top?

fins look too cheap, diamond caps the building quite elegantly.

Here's an update:

A few days ago, a guy on the BohaiBBS forums posted these. Some people see this as a sign the project is in financial troubles, while others say it is due to the recent weather, (extreme cold and snow), making it difficult to do any ground work.









Separately, the group managing this crazy project announced that it was going to include a polo square (wtf?):



Finally, I found a new render of the project:



There is an accompanying pdf here:

http://bohaibbs.org/thread-148320-1-3.html

but I didn't have time to find a place to upload it to.

As mentioned, it was wicked cold this last week, and I think they couldn't do foundation work because of the weather.

SSP reports it on hold too. Turns out the slow down was not only cold weather.

Not a bad idea that they have put this on hold. hopefully they can come up with a newer and better design for the main tower.
