That's not exactly true, as it's kind of an old picture. Now, that area is home to about 7 or 8 buildings around the same size, with a few more being constructed. Still, nothing even close to 50 or 60 floors needed to blend this tower in to the surrounding area a bit.

To prove my point, I tried to go up onto the roof of my apartment building and take some pictures, but unfortunately, it was locked. A few floors down in the stairwell, though, I found a window that didn't have this terrible screen on it, and was able to take this:



In here, you can see the old building listed in the picture above, as well as a few similarly sized buildings around it. If you squint real hard, you can see a few cranes going up in the background.

I was there a last week, but forgot to bring my camera. The location is strange, but it is within walking distance of the under-contruction subway line, so at least it isn't completely isolated. There are a couple of medium-height, 25-30 story structure nearby. The site itself looked like it was still just in the beginning stages. They were starting to assemble a crane, but they hadn't really dug down much at all. It still looked like they were doing mostly site prep, as there weren't a whole lot of workers on hand. I'll go back this weekend if I have a chance and try to snap a few shots.

check emporis

tianjin is a very large city, 5th largest to be exact. it is a city of over 5mil

there are 217 buildings under construction per emporis, and 170 completed

the tallest building currently is 203 m at 48 stories tall, there is already a taller building being constructed at 337 m at 76 stories

this is a great project for this city, cant wait to see it get built

Yup, check Emporis, even this 500m+ tower is ignored. This is a good example to show how crappy that website is when covering Chinese projects.

I don't like it, just like Barwa Tower in Doha I think the desing is too simple and boring (let me clear out that I like Barwa Tower ten times more than this supertall). The funny thing is that the tower will be build in China when actually it looks more like an Arab design don't you think?

EDIT: SORRY I didn't see the new render... it looks much nicer! I still think is simple but not in a bad way I think. Good for Tianjin.
