WUHAN | Phoenix Towers | 3,281 FT, 1000

http://chetwoods.com/portfolio/phoen...s-wuhan-china/

Quote:
Phoenix Towers will be an iconic landmark within an ambitious environmental master plan for Wuhan, the capital of central China. Situated on the Yangtze River at the crossroads of nine provinces, the ‘City of 1000 Lakes’, population 10 million, has recently been designated an environmental ‘Super City’ by the regional and central government.

At 1km high the Phoenix Towers will be the tallest pair of buildings in the world. The 47-hectare site (the towers cover 7 hectares) on an island in a lake at the end of a 3km avenue within a dense city layout will provide long vistas. Arching bridge-like over the surrounding boulevards, each tower will have a unique personality and attributes: the Feng tower will lean towards the commercial zone, the Huang tower towards the cultural and recreational zone.

Those are not very attractive.

CNN ran a story about them today though.

Umm, right.

These are not going to happen. Another overzealous Chinese developer's pipe dream.

Tell me; how's that 2,800-foot-tall building in Changsha doing? That at least had some credence with the design and the construction planning. This? Maybe in some distant future city plan in 2050 or beyond.

Ugly. These aren't really even looking very occupiable from those renderings. The one on the right looks like scaffolding. They both look just like a spire in the middle of nothing. I guess it would be cool if built, but would look so entirely out of place I hope it doesn't.
