About Wujiang masterplan. Greenland tower will be probably the only 200m+ tower. The rest of the plots seem to be <200m midrises.

One of the proposals for the main tower, rejected one. 325m.

SOM Chicago wins competition to design the Wujiang Greenland Tower

The Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) has announced their victory in an international competition to design the Greenland Group Suzhou Center in Wujiang, China. The 358-meter tower’s efficient split-core configuration demands a double-take, as the “curved, tapered form unifies the office, hotel and residential uses within a single volume.” More on ArchDaily.

Such a beautiful design deserves to be even taller :nuts: It reminds me of Kingkey 100 and Dalian Greenland Centre merged into one :lol:
