Only three cranes for this one?

P2000 Oct 19, 2014 8:53 AM

Yes. I think that's enough.
Federation tower, Sin Mas center and others use only two cranes.

Wow, this would have been the world's tallest building just over a decade ago, now it's completely off the radar.

And it's a good looking and relatively unique design to boot!

China builds all these beautiful buildings and no one in the West even knows. Those cities look really uninviting though. All the buildings other than the "signature" towers look like the old Projects in Chicago. Bad planning.

In China x amount of people need to love in y vicinity of z amount of green space, which is also graded as to the quality and usage. Society works differently over there also, so there's
little chance they become the kind of isolated highrise ghettoes a la social projects (they will have community centres, play areas, outdoor gyms and retail at the bottom, and the parks
tend to be where the retirees hang out all day anyhoo, like mall rats with chess sets and dance troupes).

These are the Suzhou standard in the new city built this last decade,

This is the 'old city' further inland, which doesn't operate the tower in the park idea, and has the traditional density.

What's uninviting is not so much the town planning, but the appearance of the buildings after a few years. Once shiny and new, after a while the poorer developments become recognisable
from the rash of aircon units posthumously added on - absolutely disfigures the urban realm. Also note how people individualise their space, replacing window types and even installing cages,
popular with families with young children left at home:

^ Those pictures look much more inviting.
