I didnt even know this was on-hold. Since when, for how long and what is the likelihood of this going ahead? Disappointing as I always felt this would be Chongqing's centrepiece.

New here? Ok, it's a long story though.

The project has been revised upwards many, many times. 168m to 276m, 298m, 335m, 339m, 330m, 320m, 357m, 375m, 377m, 398m and finally 431m. The first proposal is very old, I don't know how old, but probably close to 10 years.

They built a steel podium at first, but it was demolished after one of the revisions. Actually I think they have demolished the lower floors for two times already, and maybe they will have to do it again since the current structure was built when the project was supposed to be just 357m.

Construction resumption has been rumored to be "coming soon" all the time, but it has showed no progress in several years (since 2006 or so I think). Now it's been purchased by another developer (Bloomage, a biotech conglomerate) and it'll be displayed at a supertall summit in Shanghai in late March. New design? Maybe. Upwards revision? Probably, since there's a height race in Chongqing with another two contestants currently at 468 and 486m. There're other plots around the city expecting 400m+ projects, but they are too unclear. Besides, this project is in one of the best plots of Chongqing, so it WILL be built soon or late. The only questions are when and how tall will it be.

This is just depressing, this being on hold indefinitely and the sun valley project getting a height decrease. Z0rg, are the authorities/planners coming to the realisation that they maybe wont be able to build all of these supertalls?

The CQIFC has been purchased by a new developer (Bloomage Biotech) and they'll probably resize it, but it doesn't mean it will be shorter. Who knows, maybe they'll revise upwards once again, or maybe they'll build a sad 200m midrise. Soon or late they'll build it, that's sure. This project has one of the best plots in town.

About the Sun Valley, it's still under designing.

There's something about this proposal I really like. At first glance you'd think it was rather plain, but it's setbacks and elegance make for a great building, IMO. You don't need to go wacky to have a fantastic centerpiece. Fingers crossed for this one.

Good point, they could be preparing for demolition, but I sincerely hope that they build up from where it is.
