I know Chinese developers like Greenland or Chow Tai Fook append their names to towers they develop, but I've wondered who is behind IFS. I also wondered if the name was chosen to be deliberately confusing with IFC (like the ones in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Chongqing) and the ICC (like in Hong Kong or Chongqing) or the WFC (in Shanghai and Tianjin).
Yeah the developer for all the IFSs is The Wharf.

The top of the core is around 420 or 430 m. Not sure. Soon this building will be tallest in Suzhou. The gate of the orient is 280 meters high, without the both thin antennas. It is really big and fat skyscraper, but is not supertall. IFS is the first real supertall in Suzhou. I wait for the cladding.

Keep the spire!

I love it, even with the spire included; it gives it a strong centre point and the tapering effect always makes buildings seem taller than they really are-not that it needs it Gate of the Orient is a completely different building-not a supertall but just a super impressive feat of engineering-especially with all the world records it's breaking http://www.rmjm.com/portfolio/gate-to-the-east-china/

Suzhou still has a lot of room for more density though, the gate of the orient's and this towers area could use some more skycrapers for density

This will be the stand out tower for Suzhou when it's finished (well, that and the Gate of the Orient)-Can't wait to see it with the façade finished and the little 'ski-jump' flourish-very classy
