I agree this tower is so much taller than 1WTC. This blows away any building the U.S. has to offer in terms of roof height. Just think that by 2020 Tianjin alone will have 3 towers taller than anything in the U.S. based on roof height. [GF 117, Rose Rock, and CTF Binhai (depending on its roof height)]. R & F Tower will be close to Willis Tower too in terms of roof height.

Please don't start something silly like this. Both towers suck in terms of design. This one is way too tall for its design. Its nearby buildings, besides the proposed twins, is also disappointing.

Both tower designs can not compare to any of the other supertalls over 500m being built in China and around the world.

I'd hate to say it but I like this,GF 3rd best, 2 Ping An, and 1 ST better than 1wtc,, I think Everybody would be more happy with 1WTC if they at least took roof top higher than Willis Tower. I hate to say it but I think most ppl would be happy if 1WTC was just largest in America.

Ha, ha! You'e talking about "golden Diamond"?

Don't sweat!
It's Tianjin! They'll be changing final design 10 times till building will be finished. Most probably there won't be much info on the process, though. To my knowledge Tianjin IFC is the only building that managed to save it's original design all the way! (and even that only about he main tower).

At least I hope for such a development, or I would have to see this uber provincial monstrosity from my balcony day in and day out. Of course I could hope for all reliable smog to cover it... but it's quite close... I can see IFC most of the days, and it's almost 2 farther.

The rendering doesn't look like a 597-meter building at all.

The above rendering looks like ICC with a UFO on top, like coth said, but the photo on SSP looks kinda cool with the Diamond look,, is this tower going to be same as ICC, color wise? Because it does look quite simialar.

Wikipedia still has the following design on its page for the 117, and I'm honestly too lazy to dig through 50 pages now, so I'm just gonna ask straight away. What's up with that, and why didn't they go for it? That diamond in the current design looks awfully, awfully tacky.

That render looks 10x better than what is being built now.

Amen to that, brother. It could've been a worldwide top 10 contender with those looks, but they seem to have thrown it all away for the usual chinese cheesiness.
