yes, it looks different... different from other skyscrapers at least... and u know why??? Cus no one's ever been crazy enough to build such a ridiculous thing.

Proposal 1 was my favorite, but the final (most likely) one was my 2nd choice so thats good.

@Silentstrike, The last picture you uploaded will be the final one?

@ topic, I think nr.1 is nice, nr. 2 is not of this time, nr. 3 isn't cool enough, nr. 4 possible, nr. 5 is like a giant pencil upside down, nr. 6 is too futuristic, can't actually see what it will be.

But that last one (from Silentstrike) is really great, with that kind of open roof, it could be quiet romantic when you have an appertment there!

Out of nowhere comes a third supertall for Wuhan. First the Minsheng Bank Building, then the Gezhouba International Plaza, and now this.

Groundbreaking Starts On Wuhan Supertall

Groundbreaking today began on a new supertall skyscraper to stand in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

Imaginatively named the Wuhan Center, the scheme features a 428 metre tall, 87 storey commercial building with 256,000 square metres of floor space that's been designed by Chinese architecture firm, ECADI.

To secure the scheme, ECADI won an international competition that was entered by a number of leading firms including finalists Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and CADREG.

The Wuhan Center has been designed with a basic square footprint at its base with gentle curves. As the tower rises the floorplates gradually shrink causing it to gently taper in. Near the top of the building some 410 metres above ground level there will be a new public observation deck.

The project is one of the first of the planned supertall skyscrapers to go up in what will be a new business district for the city, Wangjiadun. Wangjiadun has an eventual completion date of 2020 and once finished will have a further five supertall towers making it one of the densest collections of such buildings on Earth.

This includes the outline approval of a 436 metre tall mixed use tower by the city authorities very recently. Detailed designs of the development are yet to be released.

Is that the same cladding that was already used for the Nanjing Greenland Financial Center?
