Weird to see the cladding installed in three areas simultaneously.

It goes faster that way, since they don't have to wait for the floor below for alignment (well, they do but you know what I mean).

Zhujiang Xincheng has an awesome skyline already. I can't believe they are mostly doubling the amount of towers (even heightwise) within 5-7 years. China's best CBD imho.

The towers don't even make it the best in my mind. They really did well with the park, and its easily the nicest park I've ever seen in a big city.

Yup. Best CBD park ever. Greenery is normally useles, but they made this one a true park-avenue. Plus they are setting an underground ocean of shops, restaurants, bus stations and parkings all along the pedestrian zone. Therefore the whole axis will have a lot of pedestrian life unlike most planned CBDs worldwide

You mean Pudong? lol

Hey Zorg, I thought you were pro-density, didn't know you like all this spaced out planned CBDs as well.

I'm glad that many cities around the world, including Perth and New York is following with these planned developments. There are some buildings in HK that I really like, but are covered by some mediocre building when viewed from avenue of the stars. Pudong and ZhuJiang ensures that this won't happen

There is an extreme amount of density here. This park is much smaller than NY's central park, and yet it has alot more development going on directly around it, including 6 supertalls (maybe more in the future), with several 20m+ towers as well.

Great cladding, I'm so happy it didn't end up looking like cheap pre-cast.

I don't feel such an extreme density as you describe it, but half of the projects have not started to rise yet. On the south west corner around the west tower, besided the Hyatt Tower, all buildings are build, and well, density is okay but not breathtaking imo. Not to compare with Tokyo's Nishi Shinjuku area or Central in Hong Kong.

Indeed. But Zhujiang is a different case because there's underground use for the open space, so that land isn't wasted. But yeah. I support unlimited density, always
