I also like the diamond. Now, it looks less like 2IFC but more like Burj Al Alam.

much much better improvement of the design. Until I see the top of diamond, I can't judge whether it looks like one but it looks awesome from below. It must glow bright and bright enough to light the city at night. U/C already is real contrast to thinking this would never get built 2 months ago.

600m Tall Under Construction In Tianjin

Published on 17-11-2008 by Skyscrapernews.com
Unlike the fanfare of Dubai there has been barely a whisper, but a new 600 metre tall tower is now under construction in the Chinese city of Tianjin.

Named China 117 Tower after the number of storeys within the building, the scheme is being developed by Hong Kong based developer, Goldin Properties, who plan on their scheme truly dominating the city of Tianjin with it's 11 and a half million population.

The tower has been designed by an as yet unnamed architect. It will contain 406,000 square metres of internal space with floors 1 to 92 consisting of offices and the upper part of the tower from levels 93 to 117 due to be occupied by an as yet unnamed six star hotel operator.

In total the tower will cost $820 million US to construct, although this budget goes up to $1.2 billion when the mall it will stand above is also included.

The scale of this is enormous with the mall due to boast some 316,000 square metres of space - this is about two thirds of the floor-space of the Pentagon in Washington DC but still less than half the current largest shopping mall in China, South China Mall and not enough to even make the global top 10.

Once completed China 117 Tower will be the tallest building in the country over 100 metres taller than Shanghai World Financial Centre. This is a record it will hold until Gensler's planned 632m tall Shanghai Centre goes up in the city it takes its name from recapturing them the title.

it is very recent and new render. Its much better looking from underneath but we're yet to see view of the possible diamond looking thing from above. But this will be taller than SWFC and freedom tower which would be an enormous achievement for China and Tianjin.

the new render hasn't been out for long, and the new information should be released quite soon.

I like the second render better as well. This is going to be an excellent tower!

Ok, that's probably another project. I'll change the title to prep unless somebody manages to clarify this.

That photo is of a residential development (3 or 4 towers of about 30 floors) at the intersection of Hongqi Nan Lu and Binshui Xi Dao in Nankai District.

The China 117 development is outside the outer ring (in Xiqing District), close to the Urban Construction University. I don't expect the tower to happen any time soon.
