I like it although its not a very complicated design. Will it be close to China 117 Tower? They may form a nice cluster together.

No, China 117 Tower is on the outskirts, but it is next to Tianjin ITC and the monster concept proposal at Nanjing Lu.

Very elegant. It sure does not 'live up' to its Chinese name, "little white building". Definitely not 'little'.

Simple and elegant. I'm sure the lighting system will play a factor.

Possible new design. 108~ floors. The tower with the sloping roof on the left has 200m, so the new design should be taller than 500m. Hope we can confirm this.

That's a great design. The building looks very "open" in that evening render, a nice workplace i imagine.

The new design has 488m/1600 feet. Designed by César Pelli studio
http://www.pcparch.com/#/projects/of...1/description/

The design of this 1,600 foot tall tower was shaped by the city’s recent history. As an important port in Northern China, the city was strongly affected by western influences in the last 150 years. This contributed to the great diversity in the culture and high level of sophistication only a few port cities in China shared.

The tower subtly illustrates the confluence and interrelationships between these various influences. Starting at the hexagonal base, this beautiful form has a strong directional twist. To counteract the arbitrary direction two towers twisted in opposite directions. The result shows exceptional beauty and grace. The 12 sweeping arcs intersect at 3 points along the height of the tower
