British architecture firm Farrells is looking to build a 1,837-foot-high (560 meters) skyscraper in Eastern China.
If completed today, the building would become the country’s second tallest building. But as Dezeen points out, construction is already underway on nine towers in China that will exceed 500 meters (1,640 feet), including the 632-meter (2,073-foot) Shanghai Tower.
And the 660-meter (2,165-foot) Ping An Finance Center.
Farrells’ new tapered tower, officially known as the Evergrande International Finance Center, is part of a proposed multi-building, mixed-use complex in Jinan, the capital of Shandong Province. At its base, the firm plans to construct a massive shopping center with retail space, restaurants and event facilities.
According to Dezeen, Farrells will file an official planning application by the end of 2014. More info here.
