KUNMING | South Asian Gate | 333 m / 1092 ft | 83 floors

This is the first supertall skyscraper for Kunming China. It may already be under-construction, or at least it is getting close. Notice how the design resembles One World Trade Center in New York.

Well ain't this about a b****. This one is already taken! Get your own design!

If we needed a twin, then we would have built one!

LOL, it's funny. At first glance, I thought about the Freedom Tower. It also reminds me of the new tallest in Hong Kong.

although i see the obvious resemblance to the FT, im glad they didnt make it look exactly like it. The glass and round edges saved the design.

at least it's not hideous. i kinda like it.

even the bottom 200 feet or so taper back in.... this holds a real resembalance to 1wtc, and in the first and second renderings, the top reminds of the old freedom tower...

i hope they go for for another design too this is a rather bad move.

And its even worse considering this is their first supertall and it will probably be a landmark for a long time in that city.

Like the FT, but nicer.

^ Exactly. A definite improvement. And frankly, its not as though the Freedom Tower design is particularly unique anyway. There are a number of similar designs out there already.

Ugh, I disagree. While the Freedom tower is not the most original or best design in the world it is significantly better than this stubby turd.
