That's a handsome tower.
It would function as a twin to the Pearl River Tower (same height !)

wow! that's extremely sexy! and youre right fabb, it would look fabulous opposite to pearl tower. actually, i think it is!

damn, i still can't get over these designs. they're so fucking sexy! it would look much better with a different layout, with smaller blocks so the towers can be closer, and instead of that big open central axis, something more organic a la ny's central park. imagine it covered in trees, ponds, even some fountains (modern of course, but as long as classical is executed well it could work).

Looks good. All three of those must be supertalls, they look to be similar heights.

China is still overly supersitious

I find it amusing that while China is trying 2 pass the west in industry and technology they still are holding on 2 superstitions like having as many 8s as possible in there phone # or skipping flours 4, 14, 24, 34, etc etc. Other then that nice building.

^North America still holds on to not having a floor 13 a lot of the time. It's all part of culture. I find it intriguing and loveable.

not that superstitious - most of those buildings disregard feng shui for starters

need more 8's. Eight is an auspicious number in many Asian cultures. Sounds like Rich.

Must cost a fortune.
