Chinas Very Own Twin Towers

Shenyang in the People's Republic of China could be in for another couple of supertalls if plans to construct twin towers designed by Zhubo Design are constructed.

The project features two supertall towers of 350 metres in height which are connected at their lower levels by a seven floor podium that's partially cantilevered over the public space at ground level.

Between them they will contain 398,124 square metres of mixed use space. One building will be occupied by a luxury hotel, residential apartments and offices for a bank plus a sky bar at the top, whilst the other tower will have grade A office space.

The project perhaps evokes the former World Trade Centre in New York from angles, something that may be deliberate thanks even to one of the names of the scheme, Twin Towers.

Nonetheless there are substantial differences, not least the gently sloping fašades and vertical lines that the architects claim represent "Mountain and Flowing Water".

The scheme is planned for an area of Shenyang known as the Golden Corridor, a key road that has a number of other skyscraper proposals along it, which if built will transform it into the road into an unrivalled area of supertalls within China.
