Like this project, Chongqing is going nuts. It's like going to be 21st century version of Chicago.

if you want to compare them... I would say this.

Beijing - Washington
Shanghai - NY
Tianjin - Chicago (both got the lake and then the skyline)

IMO, i think the ChongQing island looks a lot more like the Pudong area in Shanghai, and with the iconic building being built at the end of the island, it will become an icon like oriental pearl did for Shanghai. As for the high density buildings, yes, it does resemble NY.

By 我的摩天重庆. Wow! This project has been progressing fast and steady in the last months. First they rushed to complete the podium / shopping mall by year's end. Now they are finally setting the cladding of the earliest tower, a large part of which has been leased already. Hopefully some other tower within the complex will sprout anytime soon.
