GREENLAND GROUP CHENGDU EAST VILLAGE CBED PLOTS
Chengdu, PRC

The 486-meter landmark tower building adopts the concept of Snow Mountain. Design team uses metaphor as the catalyst to show the ideas of iceberg and continuity. The height of the tower building will be gradually increased towards the high-rise direction. It means rolling hills. The higher tower building is situated around the west of the site and faces the planned park-styled greenbelt. The sizes and landscapes of buildings depend on the lines in a natural manner. Therefore, a close network is formed among these buildings.

Style Commercial Street adopts historic materials of Chengdu to build low-rise buildings that possess lanes and yards. The area and ratio also refer to famous development projects of Chengdu, such as Kuanzhai Lane and Fancy Carp. Therefore, it embraces ratio of features and dimensions that are similar to those successful cases. With the natural height differences, underground commercial district and the ground are connected naturally. It is a unique design highlight of the style commercial street.

There's a bit of confusion as to whether the tower has 468M or 486M, but the site is definitely under prep, if not construction, as secant piles and caissons are going in.

Fantastic design, reminds me a bit of the ill-fated Chicago Spire.

I think this design is brilliant. It takes the too oft-used diagonal bracing motif pioneered by Norman Foster and adapts it very smartly, subtly reducing the size and height of the setbacks to create upward visual momentum while carrying the theme throughout. I really can't wait to see how the facade lighting works.

Chengdu Greenland Tower
Chengdu, China

FIRM Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

TYPE Commercial › Office Retail
Hospitality + Sport › Hotel

YEAR 2018

At 468 meters tall, Chengdu Greenland Tower will produce the southwestern China region’s tallest building and the fourth-tallest in the nation.

Located in the center of Chengdu’s booming Dongcun district, the design was inspired by the unique ice mountain topography around Chengdu, which symbolizes the city’s growth and promising future. Like the mountain ridges reflecting the light of the sky and the valleys reflecting light from the earth, the iconic tower will perform as a light sculpture to diffuse light from 360 degrees, creating a connection between sky and earth.

The design for the complex—including the main tower, two small towers and six-story podium, with a total building area of 395,305 sm—interprets and integrates Chengdu’s urban structure, local culture and Chinese traditional feng shui theory in a modern form.

Its goal is to create a comfortable garden city environment with convenient traffic pattern for vehicular, pedestrian and metro transportation.

The architecture and structure marry perfectly. The design fully considers the structural requirements of supertall buildings in a high seismic zone, using a geometrical plan, a tapered form and a high-performance damper bracing system to ensure the structure’s stability and efficiency. The building façade, MEP and other systems are designed with high-efficiency sustainability features, creating a new generation of the high-performance supertall building.

The main tower consists of 120,000 sm Class A office space in the lower zone, a 51,000 sm luxury hotel in the middle zone, and 42,000 sm of CEO suites in the high zone. Two small towers, at 116 m and 147 m, respectively, accommodate high-end SOHO apartments. The podium includes 14,000 sm of retail, a 16,000 sm conference center with bridge connection to the main tower, and an 8,000 sm exhibition center. There is also a roof garden with 360-degree views of the city.

This was my thoughts as soon as I saw the rendering before I had even read your post. This is a beautiful design, and one that I shall keep an eye on as I am very keen to see how this will turn out once completed.

Whoa, that contraption that the cranes sit on is something I've never seen. Pretty cool engineering solution to multiple self-rising cranes.
