Farrells Design Chosen For Nanning

Designs have surfaced for a twin tower supertall development by leading British architecture firm Farrells, the Nanning Centre in China that will be constructed in the city the scheme takes its name from.

The curvaceous identical twin towers were rumoured to be as tall as 496 metres in height with 103 floors each, although the actual plans and local news reports have shown the project to be 82 floors for each of the towers and a height of 330 metres each.

Set on a 12.7 acre site, the project includes not only the towers but a collection of five floor buildings masterplanned to have boulevards going past them leading to the skyscrapers and connections to the nearby burgeoning local transit network. In total the project will consist largely of commercial and office use although 25-30 percent will be hotel space.

Regardless of the eventual height, the scheme is being developed by the Guangxi Lung Mun Oasis Real Estate Company, who won a competition between Chinese developers to realise a landmark scheme on the site, with the intention of it being a crowning addition to the Nanning skyline.

The developer is expected to start work on the site as soon as possible, and already has a good track record in constructing major towers in the People's Republic with developments in the core CBD of Nanning including the International Chamber of Commerce Centre, a 276 metre tall skyscraper.
