CHONGQING | Chongqing Chaotianmen | 347m x 2 | 1139ft | 78 fl | 246m x 4 | 807ft | 68 fl | 218m x 2 | 714ft | 62 fl | Prep

Edit: FINAL DESIGN.

Information:

Chongqing Chaotianmen
Chongqing, China,
Located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jailing rivers, the site for this mixed-use project is imbued with a significance that is immediately symbolic. The foremost of Chongqing’s traditional city gates (the Chaotian Gate, or “gate to heaven”), where emperors carried out the ceremonies of diplomatic greeting, it has long been a historical landmark. As the city’s initial dock area on the Yangtze, it also represents the great tradition of the shipping highway, which has stoked this major inland city’s development and now drives its evolution as one of China’s most important modern cities. The design for the project to be situated at this gateway is generated by the image of powerful sails upon the water. The outer facades of the project’s six towers—the transparent surfaces that will face the water to the north—are meant to recall a fleet of ancient Chinese ships, with their huge rectangles of white canvas filled by the wind. This image is recognizable in its simplicity, yet iconic in its form. In addition to serving as an outward-facing gateway symbol, the project also has a strong presence in forming the apex of the city’s peninsula. The south-facing facades—the inside of the arc of towers—look back to the city in a gently embracing way, covered by green hanging gardens that meet the ground at a podium roof level that is itself a green amphitheater “park” of gardens, pools, and public circulation. This park area gently rises to the north, framing views to the water between the towers—which will house residences, offices, and a hotel—and maximizing views of the project itself from the city. Underneath the park level, the podium consists of five levels of public program, including retail and cultural facilities, as well as hubs for land and water transportation. The two central outer towers, directly facing the rivers’ convergence to the north, are the project’s tallest structures (348 meters above flood plain; 77 floors each), with the central axis of the project proceeding back from between them, toward the city. Tucked immediately within the two tallest towers, extending the arc, are four shorter towers (each with 62 floors), across which runs an exterior, connecting garden that hovers 248 meters in the air. In addition to linking these four towers—two of which are office space (and actually “twin” stepped segments of the two larger, central towers), and two of which are residential—the garden echoes the amphitheater park far below and creates a dramatic viewing platform that optimizes this site’s unique views back to the rest of Chongqing. Within the garden level’s hull is a full floor of hotel lobby, restaurants, and clubs. Above are gardens and pools. The remaining two (freestanding) towers, which complete the prow-like arc of six, are residential, each 57 floors tall, making for a project total of 302,000 square meters of prime living units.

I'm not disappointed, but Chaotianmen deserves a huge world class project. Something like 450m+ twins or so. On the other hand Jiefangbei has tons of big ones coming already, so it's enough for many years.

I don't think it's the final design anyway as the design is very different depending on the render, we'll see...

this building looks great and stuff, bu t for such a location I dont want it. Its at the tip of this island, and the place where most photos are gna be taken from.

On this spot there should be an absolute landmark, a building that is unique and a beautiful creative design. Like a design so crazy it'll be almost a modern world wonder or something.

The buildings look great (from the from angle a bit like shanghai IFC), but aren't good enough for the plot given to them IMO.

Proposal on third pic is the best one. Those curvatures give the project interesting plus.

12 preliminary proposals. Notice that the 3 residential towers on the left are 207m each. Sad to say that some proposals look shorter than 300m.

No heights provided, but I added my personal estimation.

Proposal 1. 2x250m~


Proposal 2. 350~, 280~, 200~


Proposal 3. 350-400


Proposal 4. 2x200+


Proposal 5. 300+, 250+, 200+.


Proposal 6. 400+.


Proposal 7. 2x300-340


Proposal 8. 300+, 2x200+.


Proposal 9. 280~


Proposal 10. 2x300+


Proposal 11. 250+, 200+


Proposal 12. 350+, 300+, 200+, 180+.



They want this project to be a global landmark to put Chongqing on the map of the world class cities. Imo only a couple of proposals look eye-catching enogugh to become a world class skyscraper project. Nowadays, if you want a global skyscraper landmark you need either something incredibly tall (at least 500+), incredibly expensive and over-designed (and therefore ugly for most people) or very unique twin tower project to get that.

Some of these proposals (3rd, 9th, 10th) look rather irrelevant, they wouldn't even become Chongqing's city main skyscraper landmark in comparison with those 400+ projects approved in other areas of the city.

Only the 12th proposal is good imo, but I would be happy if they chose the 6th, 2nd or maybe the 10th, 7th or 3rd ones.

I wish they built a 888m, 188 floor tower. That would be a world class project for sure. A 500m twin project would be nice too

What can I say. Many of them look incredibly tacky and overdesigned by those typical architects with an unlimited ego who love to destroy some city skyline with a project that sticks out a mile.

Many others on the other hand are simply perfect. Stunning, freaking beautiful. Same problem as always though: Not tall enough. None of them looks taller than 400m. A couple of them may be 400m~, that's all. But anyway, just look at those models around the end of the gallery, they are so beautiful.

What about the heights? Some proposals are just a few towers around 180-200m. There is a couple of proposals that don't have any highrise Others on the other hand seem to have 3 or even 4x300m~. Many have 4x200-350m. We'll see.

These are my 4 favourites.

1. Absolutely perfect.


2. Very iconic and futuristic.


3. Beautiful, very beautiful


4. Not too special, but 4x280-330m~ seems very OK to me

The countdown for what? Final proposal announcement, construction start or completion?

Some of these proposals are stunning, but they lack height. I've been counting the floors of some of the tallest using a zoom and none of them has more than 75 floors. Most have around 60-65 floors and shouldn't be taller than 280-310m. Chongqing's gate should have 450m at the very least imo, especialy since they are building two projects taller than 460m already.

Only this one seems truly tall, but I couldn't count the floors. Maybe around 80.
