The very fist design, 1x80fl, 2x40fl+. It's amazing how this project has become bigger and bigger. I hope the final design will be out soon.

CHONGQING | Century Star Plaza (Under construction): 2x330m+, 86 floors. Chongqing's largest project by far, developed by ASE and located also in Jiefangbei. This crazy development composed by two main towers (office and hotel) and four residentials has changed many times and the last design hasn't been chosen by the moment. The first version was composed by one tower around 80 floors and two around 40, called City Crown of Chongqing. Then, the project was relaunched as 6 towers, 79, 75, 68, 62, 58 and 55 floors respectively, being the tallest 300m high. In early 2007, the two main towers were announced to become 86 floor twins. Finally, in mid 2007, some renders were launched about the final proposals, which showed crazy designs, some of them as tall as 90 floors. The outcome is still an enigma. The huge podium hosting a shopping center is under construction. Thread


The first plan was composed by 3 towers only.

Old plan 1:

R1: 40 floors, 200m~
R2: 40 floors, 200m~
R3: 80 floors, 300m+



Then it was changed to another different concept, based on a large shopping center with 5 residential towers and 1 supertall for office use.

Old plan 2:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 200m+
R4: 68 floors, 200m+
R5: 75 floors, 200m+
R6: 79 floors, 300m+



The plan was changed again later, and it was announced that there would be 2 main towers, 86 floors each one and above 300m.

Old plan 3:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 200m+
R4: 68 floors, 200m+
R5: 86 floors, 330m+
R6: 86 floors, 330m+



Some news at last about the final project.

- The tallest tower will be 428m, it is confirmed.

- Since they have announced for several times that the two tallest towers would be twins, the second tallest might be 428m too.

- Unofficial rumour claims that the second tower will be above 350m. This was said at the official meeting where they released the new version of Jialing Fanying project. Same source claimed that the tallest one would be 428m, and we could confirm this later.

- No news about the other towers, so I'm keeping posting the old figures for them.

Final plan, hypothesis 1:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 220m+
R4: 68 floors, 250m+
R5: 350-400m
R6: 428m



However, rumour claims that the second supertall tower doesn't mean a revision on R6 tower, but an addition of a seventh tower. This is not confirmed, but latest renders locate the second tallest towers on an area where none of the 5 residentials were planned.

Final plan, hypothesis 2:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 220m+
R4: 68 floors, 250m+
R5: 75 floors, 300m~
R6: 350-400m
R7: 428m



Additional rumour claims the 8 floor podium was never included in the floor count of the towers (typical in China when making early designs). This source claims that the shortest tower would be 55+8 floors and the tallest one 88+8 floors.

Final plan, hypothesis 3:

R1: 63 floors, 220m+
R2: 66 floors, 220m+
R3: 69 floors, 250m+
R4: 76 floors, 300m~
R5: 83 floors, 300m+
R6: 350-400m
R7: 96 floors, 428m


Source about the final height of the tallest tower being 428m:

Source about the 8 floor podium not being included in the original floor count for the towers built on it:
http://www.hrm.cn/company/ResumeShow...022282838.html


I hope we can get all the info soon, this project is going beyond madness.

Found at Dennis Lau & Ng Chun Man web. It doesn't look to be 428m though, I don't think it is the final design even if they chose this architect.

it isn't rare that the towers on the renders look smaller than they'll be

An incredible project. I personally like the looks of the first render, hopefully the final product will be something like it.
