486m, by AEDAS
Greenland Group Chengdu East Village CBED Plots
Chengdu, PRC

The design of the 486m iconic tower is based on the concept of an ice mountain. We have extended the strong iconic imagery of rock and ice from the office tower to the entire site. This creates a strong architectural image and language for the development.

The land is well planned with residential to the south, serviced apartments and retail on the east, office tower on the north east, office and a retail mall to the north west and low rise themed commercial at the centre. Each site is connected underground, linking to the MTR station and other transport nodes, creating a completely integrated development.

Earthquake remediation is of crucial importance for a supertall in Chengdu.

Portman USA version.


Project Description
Taking its cue from the formality of the ancient city of Chengdu, the project features a balanced plan. The complex is made up of three primary components organized along a central spine. The placement of the components maximizes the site. The iconic tower sits to the Northeast and anchors the complex. Twin 150-meter residential towers are arranged on the Southwest side of the site. The towers bracket a podium building providing retail and conference facilities in the center. The components work together while maintaining their own individual identities.

The old design was definitely better, no doubt.

I guess they chose AEDAS design. Couldn't find exact position of the main tower, but the whole masterplan is way under construction.. by the way Aedas website state 486m, but everywhere at the site they proudly advertise 468 (probably metres), they also have showroom there and have model of 'Aedas' tower and run advertisement campaign across the city with aedas design

I thought It was designed by AS+GG. In an interview he said to be working on 2 skyscrapers taller than the Willis in China. One being Wuhan Greenland and the other this one. If I'm wrong maybe there is another project out there that we don't know about yet.

They may have started drilling the holes for reinforcement walls of the basement levels, but I cannot be sure,, All the residential areas are under construction, this would be the last 'flat' greenland plot in that area. The render of the tower is used in advertising greenland properties everywhere in the city and in excess at this area of the city,, but people talking that this may be just a publicity stunt to attract customers to this area.. we'll see. Also I personally don't like that area, least tidy area as much as I seen, but again this may change

Looks to be prep to me. That is amazing! Chengdu is such an amazing city and it really deserves a good landmark tower with a unique design. It also lacks high rise density, but that changes as well with many ongoing skyscraper projects

I see steel cages on the site. Could they be for the main tower?

Greenland doesn't do publicity stunts Rockass. They really mean business! After years of watching supertall construction in China I can tell you those rebar cages are for a heavy, heavy load.
