Well, besides the Box and taipei lookalike, the rest of the proposals are quite interesting. I would have hoped for the classy one though. Oh well. Just remember, China likes building CBDs, so they might be used in future lol.

Guangzhou, China
New World Development
Office, Supertall, Mixed-Use
398,000 ft2 / 37,000 m2

Chow Tai Fook Centre, a 398,000 square-meter mixed-use building is located across from Guangzhou West Tower in Guangzhou’s Tianhe District. It is linked to public rail through underground connections at the basement levels and to nearby buildings through a network of second level pedestrian bridges. The building will be 530 meters tall.

The tower houses 208,720 square meters of office, 74,260 square meters of residential, and 45,924 square meters of hotel program. A tiered podium with spiraling roof terraces houses hotel function program as well as 46,596 square meters of retail.

The design of Chow Tai Fook Centre’s tower is derived from its multiple uses – the building steps to accommodate the changing floorplates of each program type – but also from the nearby Guangzhou West Tower and Guangzhou TV Tower. The chiseled setbacks are sculpted to acknowledge the various heights of nearby towers. The overall effect of the tower, which is located on the southwest corner of the site, is of a crystalline form ascending to the sky. This formal vocabulary extends to the podium, which rises from the base of the tower and steps up towards its center where a large skylight brings natural light into the retail arcades.

At the ground floor, dedicated drop-off areas serve individual programs. At the South and West, the tower is ringed by office drop-offs offering direct access to the office lobby and lifts. The service apartment drop-off is also at the south of the site facing the dedicated green area. North of the office lobby, a dedicated retail drop-off links to the primary retail atrium that runs East-West and divides the retail and hotel/office program areas. At the Southeast, a dedicated hotel drop-off serves both hotel visitors and function guests. It is covered and inboard of the access road offering a discrete and luxurious entrance experience.

The tower’s façade is designed to emphasize its verticality. Long strips of stone extend from the tower base and wrap around the building’s chiseled setbacks. The podium has a similarly tiered chiseled form. Its façade, which is a combination of glass, wood and stone, wraps from the tower and offers ample terraces for restaurants and cafes. A large roof deck above the hotel function area can serve as an outdoor banquet area.

The building will employ a number of energy efficient tools in order to reduce its environmental footprint. These include the use of high-efficiency chillers, façade materials with good thermal properties, and heat recovery from the water cooled chiller condensers.

Sigh. At least the previous proposals had some features in common with the West tower, like some pipe structures and rounded shapes, this one is totally alien to its supposed twin.

I like simple designs with nice angular dimensions, not so much a fan of cylindrical buildings. This one could look really good.

Because he/she doesn't update the Render.
