That has got to be the weirdest thing I have ever seen, but I'll give it props for being unique and creative.

Not so original. Looks veeeeeeeeeeery similar to the tower proposed that's supposed to go on top of the old Met Life building in NYC.

looks like a whiteish typical box shaped american skyscraper that has had its cladding ripped off serveral places to show off the office spaces inside the buildings.

very intresting design only thing that bother me is that the top dozent quite match the midsection

One of the most beautiful skyscrapers I have seen on this site yet! Real shame it isn't being built in the US though.

Odd design. Looks like a picture of a highrise in the middle of collapsing. Maybe it would look different in reality v. rendering but from these few pics I don't think I like it.

^ Toronto will gladly reuse it, LOL. Anyways, interesting design and sure to be an instant icon for Bangkok. Hopefully this is still in the works.

I like it. Looks like some fantastic post-apocalyptic apparition out of a SF novel. As long as it has its structural integrity, I'm all for it. Breaks up the usual clutch of lines quite nicely.

This building could be spectacular. Bangkok has been getting a few solid towers lately.

I think this is a STUNNING design and hope it gets built. The renderings show a design that are beautiful, provocative, unsettling, and interesting. When a building bring up those type of emotions, that is good design. However, if it is not executed well, then it can end up being a disaster. Let's see what happens.

So here is so updates after a bit of googling:

MahaNakhon a hit abroad

Published: 24/08/2011 at 12:00 AM
Newspaper section: Business
Bangkok Post

Because of better sentiment among foreigners toward the elected government, the luxury developer Pace Development Co Ltd plans another roadshow in Hong Kong to pick up additional sales of at least 200 million baht for units at its high-end MahaNakhon project.

CEO Sorapoj Techakraisri said foreign property buyers' confidence in Thailand's economy and political situation had improved after the general election and formation of the new government, showing the country's political stability.

"They [foreign buyers] didn't care which party would become the new government, who would be the new prime minister or what the new policies would be," he said. "They just learned that we had a government from an election, a good sign for the country."

The company will have its second roadshow in Hong Kong next month to follow up new sales and expects to have at least 200 million baht after receiving many inquiries. The previous roadshow in Hong Kong last month recorded sales of 420 million baht for 10 units.

"Chinese buyers are interesting for us to tap, and we plan to talk with our sales agent about this segment," said Mr Sorapoj. "But they prefer one-on-one or private meetings to a roadshow because many of them are richer and want to stay unknown."

The company had 330 million baht in sales from eight units sold at another roadshow in Singapore. Total sales at both destinations of 750 million baht exceeded a target of 600 million baht, said Mr Sorapoj, a son of the major shareholders of the condominium leader L.P.N. Development.

With an investment of 14 billion baht, MahaNakhon will have 194 units worth 19 billion baht. It is 40% sold and sales are expected to reach 45% by the end of the year. Unit prices are 220,000 to 340,000 baht per square metre. Construction is to be completed in 2014.

"Better sales are helping us to make easier deals and to bargain better with banks that fund the project finance," said Mr Sorapoj. "By year-end we will complete a deal with the banks and hope to get the best terms amid rising interest rates."

In the year to date, the company had sales of 4.9 billion baht, up 60% from 2010. It has 20 units remaining for sale at Saladaeng Residences.
