The render there kinda makes it look like the Almas Tower, only without the spire. I like it!

Their's going to be a bit of "Prep" work first. Once piling begins, I think then it can be moved to "U/C" section.

GUANGZHOU | East Tower | 530m | 1783ft | 116 fl | App
If the height is 530m then it's 1738 ft (1738.85' to be exact).
It looks like the numbers have been transposed in the thread header.

I don't know. I could never really see two widely spaced twins other than a little odd in the skyline. The new design of the east is really spectacular. It's now actually the right complement to the west one.

I quite like this design. I hadn't actually seen it before, but it is cool.
after seeing a render of another tower with the original twins in the background, I am kind of glad that they aren't twins.
huge tower though, if only my city had something 1/5 of that height

The renders released so far don't look too professionally done, even if its released by the designer firm, hope there will be better renders soon. Can't wait until the Gz cbd is complete.

Twin towers are better for the city's fengshui.

I am a little bit confused. There is a site next to the Hyatt (i think it`s Hyatt). But this site doesn`t look that big. On the opposite side of the street between those residential towers is a bigger site (to the east from the other mentioned site). Where will that tower be build? The entire area is under construction.

Now i will take my tripod, my favorite lenses, go to the Pearl river and take some night shots.
Guangzhou will have one of the best skylines in the world, better than Shenzhen and maybe better than Shanghai and i will proove it.

No idea what they are doing.
