Proposals have been put forward for yet another supertall skyscraper to grace China's ever expanding collection. To be located in the burgeoning city of Nanjing, the tower will be sited in the north of the Huxi Central Business District, and if given the thumbs up, will consist of two towers the tallest of which will stand at 339 metres.
The project will be developed by the Golden Eagle Group and will have the original name of Golden Eagle Tiandi.
Set on a curving, starting with a nine-storey podium base which looks like it will feature a golf course if the plans materialise as originally proposed, the facades will be fully glazed giving a sleek look to the project while the podium steps are accentuated by white cladding.
Mixed-use in nature, the podium will offer nine levels of commercial space allowing residents and workers to spend their hard earned cash on life's little luxuries in the lunch hour.
The smaller of the towers which will stand at 55-storeys will be purely residential, whilst tthe taller tower will consist of a 5 star hotel along with premium office space and the top levels will be residential space, offering stunning views across the city for those lucky enough to be able to afford the penthouse.
At present the proposals have been through public opinion without opposition, and with local government so receptive to such schemes, as well as seeing them as a major financial bonus, all being well the project should get the go-ahead.
