I think this plot includes the surrounding small buildings as well. Its not just for the tower, I really do hope they choose either one of the new designs. Anything other than the box is a good choice. It will look a bit unbalanced, but i think i will get used to it. Can't wait for the other towers to finish as well.

The renders that Zorg showed are so Ugly in comparisons with the other proposal ( one with the stripes near the top). Hope they don't pick this the new one and when is there a definitive design???

If the East Tower is not constructed in the same height, scale and design as the West Tower, then they can't be twins. So it's either the same same design as the West Tower, or it cannot be built at all. A different design would mess up the Guangzhou skyline.

Final height will be 532.9m according to unsourced information posted by 東山大少. Details will be released in September.

wow, that will be about a 100m difference, more significant than the two towers in HK. I hope they choose a good design, one which fits in with the skyline. Can't wait until september then.

These are the preliminary proposals we know. Am I missing anyone?

But that one completely random and conceptual I think. Not an actual proposal...

I think the second and third ones are the best, particularly the third one, which seems to be similar to the west tower, because of its structure. the mini west tower beside it is also quite cool.

Alright, so they are not twin. If it is so, I like the 4th or 5th picture. The one that has mini west tower wrapted design. they should stop calling it the east tower. It sounds like a twin bro of the west tower.

I'm not that big a fan of any of the proposals, if I had to choose tho, I would choose the 3rd proposal. Its the best looking even if it does not have the height of the others.

So they will never build the tower similar to the West Tower. Sigh. I don't like it. I am hoping they will build something similar or closer to the West Tower.
