China Supertalls thread/development

China Zun tower looks very very good and its almost complete. Its going up in Beijing which has been in dire need of some tall buildings and some quality. They had a very short boring skyline for a long time but thats is all being erased very quickly.

Re: China Supertalls thread/development

Honestly they're building some of the best supertalls in the world. Dubai is probably the worst, and id say NYC in the US and quite a few Chinese cities are really showing how to do it right in the 21st century. Never thought Id look to China as inspiration for architecture but my hats off to them theyre doing a good job.

Re: China Supertalls thread/development

Wow...look at this tower going up in Tanjin. Goldin finance 117 tower. 117 floors at 1957' without a cheater spire to make up the bulk of the height. This is huge, talk about verticality. Almost a 2000' roof height, and it gets thinner the higher it goes to really make it look enormous.

China Zun tower is Beijing is almost topped out. Good to see Beijing finally getting some nice towers where they had one of the worst skylines before.
