SHIRAZ | Shiraz World Trade Center | 200m+ | 47 fl | On Hold

Sharp Scifi Design For Shiraz

[Published on 11-05-2009 by Skyscrapernews.com
Construction on the foundations is currently underway on the first ever skyscraper in the Iranian city of Shiraz with a design that wouldn't look out of place in Star Trek.

The project named the Shiraz World Trade Centre will stand at 47 storeys when complete taking it over the 200 metres mark - not a bad height for a first foray into the world of skyscrapers.

The project consists of two twin towers which rise from a rectangular shaped fully glazed, stepped podium, the sides of which gently slant outwards. The roof of the podium has a large water feature which runs between the towers as well as some greenery that edges the bases of the structure.

The towers themselves are sharply triangular in shape and rise upward to slanted peaks, one of which has a height-boosting spire attached to boost its height. Cladding the project are dark blue, glazed facades along with white accenting which emphasises the towers edges.

The other tower has a helipad protruding outwards from its peak that for any Star Trek fanatic may just put them in mind of the Starship Enterprise docking, for everyone else they may just think aliens have crashed into the towers.

Not only will helicopters be able to land on it but it will also be rented out for concerts and for those that can afford it, private events. The towers are joined near the peaks by a huge sky bridge that spans several storeys and will provide public recreational space.

The towers will be mixed use and consists of 4 storeys of parking space, 2 floors for office and residential lobbies, 2 administration floors, 4 public floors that will have fun stuff like recreational facilities, sports amenities as well as cultural attractions. 5 floors will be dedicated to commercial use while the remaining 30 floors will be split between grade A office space and luxury apartments.

Very original design! Although I'd be scared to play or watch a concert up on that helipad

The round balcony you have on roof top looks amazing.. I wish I could stand there and see the whole city.
Having dinner at that top would also be nice

I hope so too. If Farhangshahr towers get approved they won't be lonely.

Chamran hotel is not over 200m but it can be classified as a highrise.
