They've asked the workers and they said they are demolishing the podium and redesigning the project. Also they think that it's been purchased by a HK developer.

At least they are getting rid of that eye-sore. I don't care if this will be a supertall or not, I just want it completed.

The podium is being demolished, confirmed. Uncertain future though according to this article.

I care if it is a supertall! Who gives a shit about another highrise? Chongqing has plenty of them. They need outstanding buildings.

Actually, Chongqing needs a landmark, not supertalls. All of its skyscrapers lacks creativity, it seems as if Chongqing gets all the second-hand projects no other cities wants.

It kinda makes the city special. A modern second-hand area. Gnarly.

Yes, I am still waiting for that final proposal to come out for the area at the tip of the peninsula, I think it will be the 'landmark' structure for chongqing. i mean if they built a TV tower like oriental pearl in that location, then it would certainly look good, however, it may look similar to pudong. Yeah, they just need something attractive there for it to stand out. Once it stands out, then the two art buildings on the other side of the river will become landmarks and so will the bridge, the world's longest arch. Until then, its just another 'Chinese city' i guess

But they do need a supertall. Something very tall and innovative similar to the Shanghai Tower in Shanghai, or the Dynamix Balwas Tower in Mumbai. They lost one of their best chances when they cancelled the first approval of Urban Forest which would have been a decent ~400m or so.

That's a brilliant design. A bit boxy, nevertheless outstanding.

Looks like something you could build in Chicago.

Yes, unfortunately, both the old and new designs have a Chicago feeling. I don't like it at all. However, given the density and arrangement of the CBD, we can't expect them to build Jin Mao's or SWFCs. It would be a real shame for those gems to be jammed in between the bunch.
