Anyway, since this is a masterplan (as Baishizhou, Qianhai...) we should open independent threads for each supertall as they start releasing specific info/images. But it may take years. Perhaps by 2017 the supertall forums will have over 60 active threads for Shenzhen lol.

google earth has part of the area as recent as march this year, but it does not look prep, no machines. i think infrastructure is to come earlier than that the plots start, but we can hope they will build the skyscrapers soon.

Just an insane proposal. Hard to visualize something of this scale.

I was in Spain for 2 weeks and what am I seeing when I am back: Future City Project is 700m+ tall now and they are developing one megatall and 6 supertalls instead of 2 supertalls here. Insane. Now I think that it is quiet realistic that China Resources Headquater will be 525m since it is near this proposal. If this all gets build like this (Shenwan Station Towers, China Resources Headquater, One Shenzhen Bay and Tianji International Plaza) it will be bigger then Dubai Marina, hopefully with better designs

Where exactly is this locate?

Just too many proposals, eventually Shenzhen will have to decide which is the best CBD

This area is essentially connected with Houhai, so may count as one business district once it shows its shape. In the near term this area looks the most promising to me, as Qianhai looks like a longer term development with height restrictions

800m-900m above ground? i doubt they can build anything that all there then unless they change flight paths.

I live quite close to the flight path passing by the site (near the proposed 300m OCT tower), but I have not noticed airplanes flying under 1000m in front of me...may be I was getting used to the airplanes?

we need someone that can read instrument charts. I was guesstimating the numbers on the thing.

page 28 https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9pI...WhmSXF3TU1MMnc

The way I see it, the planes should be 700m off the ground when turning at 大南山 and be at 900m when they reach 竹子林. Don't know if I'm right.

Looks like you spent some effort looking for this chart, I wouldn't know where to find it.

Based on my 10yr + experience living in OCT I have not noticed low flying airliners nearby tho
