I actually first noticed that project in The South China Morning Post. It also showed the original plans for The Nina Tower which was supposed to be taller than The Chongqing.

The exact issue where I got it from is TIME March 7, 1994. I have a copy of it with me right now :



There are a few cancelled projects featured in here, including Kaohsiung's Asia Plaza, a 103-story tower that would finish in 2004 (431 m). Chongqing Tower would feature a hotel from the 80th floor and the skyscraper would be 457 m tall. Millennium Tower would be 800 m high and was listed under the preliminary planning stage (I think I said completion in 2000 before).

I rarely read Time but I used to read alot of Asiaweek and what's where I find about these projects. Anyway, I also heard of the Asia Plaza but sad it was cancelled.

Asiaweek was a sister publication of Time. It stopped publishing a few years ago though.

It sucked when they stopped publishing since that mag had alot of interesting articles on Asia.

Anyway, to ranked my best Asian skyline.

1) Hong Kong - in fact this city belongs to the Hall of Fame when it comes to skyline!

2) Shanghai
3) Kuala Lumpur

I'll still go for HK over Dubai in terms of skyline despite them having the Burj.

Notice how most images of Shanghai today are focused on Pudong than The Bund!
