Hm, for a huge supertall it sure is a bit bland...then again it isn't too bland since there aren't many similar boxes around.

Looks like every small fishing village in China gets a 1500ft+ tower these days

not only that but the designs have minimal facade detailing and some like this one have boring massing. this tower is basically a tall blue box with some white light up corners

True. I can't believe these projects still press on even with the record breaking vacancy rates that China has had this year.

Why does this town have a super-tall skyscraper? My relatives live in this town, and this place is nothing more than a suburb of Shenzhen, or Guangzhou. It makes no sense. It's like putting some 1,600 foot tall skyscraper in White Plains. It won't see much use.

The Woodlands has skyscrapers, and it's 25 miles outside of Houston. Nothing surprises me anymore. Macao is effectively a suburb of Guangzhou.

I don't know if that's a fair comparison. The woodlands office buildings average around ~20 stories. I also wouldn't call it "25 miles outside of Houston". It may be that far away from downtown, but it is still essentially a part of the dense metro area.

For sum odd reason it reminds me of the never built 2,300 foot Chicago WTC. Probably the massiveness. Unless this is some huge state run Chinese company that needs something this humongous it better become mixed use or it will never fill up in this "suburb".

This building, among others, makes me think I'm right that part of the reason China is building so many skyscrapers is to pad their "economic growth" figures without the actual economic growth.
