TIANJIN | Tianjin World Financial Center | 1,106 FT / 337 M | 76 FLOORS

Website: www.tjwfc.com


Renders

















Construction pictures. Now this was posted by BarbaricManchurian on SSC on August 11th. There are newer pictures but I don't know which is from the main tower and which is from the side buildings.

Workers housing:



Side buildings:













Sales center:



Getting closer to the main tower:





First glimpse of the main tower, progress seems to be a bit slow:



More pics of the main tower:





Had to peek through a small hole, the wall around the construction site is quite high and well built (of course upgraded for the Olympics, before, they used fences instead of walls)





More main tower pics:







Back at the side buildings:









Workers housing, again:



Looks quite cute imo:

A very stately, solid looking tower. Not at all overdone, very classy. :-D

Is this the same project as the 1800 ft tall one that is on SSP?

Thanks, it has been slow over there today, and it isn't on the first 2 pages when I gave up looking for the bigger tower.

That's a residential building that has turned out much taller than anyone (on ss.cn etc.) knew it would. It is still rising too, so it might turn out to be one of the tallest residential towers in China.

I counted 54 floors without including the base (not visible) and the top (hidden by the scaffolding).
That would add up to 60 floors at least.
