Construction has just started on what is going to be China’s second-largest skyscraper the ‘Evergrande tower’ designed by the award-winning British architecture firm, Terry Farrell, and Partners.
The tower will be standing at 560 meters, falling just short of the Shanghai Tower.
The tower will feature apartments, offices, entertainment spaces, and shops.
The Evergrande building is planned as a landmark for city’s new Shandong central business district, with unabated views of the city from the sky lounges.
Estimated to cost around 25 billion yuan (about 4 billion USD) the tower will contain the latest in integrated sustainable systems and strategies.
“As well as our skyscraper tasks in Beijing and Shanghai, we are developing on the ability obtained with KK100 in Shenzhen (also created by Farrell), which set new criteria for mixed-use and high-rise living and functioning,” Farrell said.
