That's a lot of buildings U/C all in the same area, hard to tell which one is GF,, until it towers above the others.. Anyone know how long that will take.. A Year??

GF has a massive core and is very noticable since it is a lot wider than all the other buildings GF is also the only building with 4 cranes on top of it, the others have one or two each

Exactly. You simply cannot not spot it because of the building size. Few years ago, when I starter following Moscow IBC, I could differentiate the towers by their foundation.

Now doesn't it look better?
Don't be fooled by that rendering, Chinese rendering always like give green fields as background, here is Google maps of that area. It's essentially the edge of town on the western side. Basically if you take a picture from the east you'll see empty fields and low rise warehouses, but you'll see the city in the background if you take picture from west side. The interesting part is this district has a sharp line from urban forest (just scroll to the east a little) and a random section flat farm land to the south. I would actually give it higher probability of success than Yujiapu. Just zoom out and you'll see.

Yujiapu Business District on the other hand is actually far less urban, however, it's right next to a EPIC, OMG, WTF, Gigantic shipyard and port. See Google map below.

Google maps image shows exactly the same things as renders. Just one line of midrises separated from the rest of the project (and the main tower) with greenery. Also I'm well aware of the location. I made this post back in the day. And as you said goldin project is located at the edge of the city, while Yujiapu is a center of new business district, quite frankly it's a center of a separate city from tianjin. And I'm not sure how you have doubts but Yujiapu along with Xiangluowan are much more denser and compact spaces than goldin.

This is going to be a very skinny supertall, at only 65 meters at its ground floor! I am making a diagram so there can finally be an updated design version on SSP.

Lovely updates btw Barbaric!

Skinny? That's 2 metres wider than the old WTC Twins' bases were. Not to mention 180 metres taller.

Not yet, only 3 out of 4 have the next crane supports installed and none have been jumped yet. I give it a week tops.

Just look at maps, I almost accepted a Job in Tianjin. (another company took me with higher salary that ended my sea turtle aspirations...) In the Bohai New Area too, not exactly a place I want to go. Like you said, Bohai new area a new city, but it's also a city without much going on. Good place to visit and awe, but not a good place to live. (If they at offer 15-20 minute commute, it could be a good place to work..) It can a great place to work and live, and it take times to setup a eco-system.

However, Xiqing District where Goldin 117 is located has for some reason resisted sprawl, and just beginning to. it's an undeveloped area that's relative close to city center, and can be easily hooked to existing metro network and give reasonable commute times. It's essentially part of Urban spraw of Tianjin. (Just hope this multiple urban center model will not end up with a city like Los Angles Metro Area...)

Overview of Tianjin metro area. (Note the clear line between Xiqing District and Tianjin Center, with nearly no urban sprawl bleeding the line)

Golden 117 and surrounding area

Yujiapu and surrounding area, with exception of TEDA and Yujiapu + Xiangluowan. it's a sea of factory, warehouses and port facilities...

The good things is both projects has metro near by, however neither has one right in the center of the development.

Oh, okay. So basically it's new 1WTC with 2 metres added on length and width and base angle θ as 1.54711c rather than 1.54053c at 1WTC?

very interesting read luhai. i think with GF117 the area might start urbanizating a lot more though, seeing that also res. buildings are going up.
