great update, thx.

I'ven been to Chongqing once, its topography is like San Francisco, all uphills and downhills. Because of this, CQ may eventually build to a city on bridges.

Huge news, not too trustable by the moment though.

This is Artificial Tower, 189m, supposed to be u/c.


This is the hole, 29m and digging deeper and deeper in raw rock, why? (The pic is old, here it is 20m or so).


Well, same asked a Chongqingese to the workers. They told him they are not building Artificial Tower anymore. The land was sold to a "foreign" developer and now they are planning Asia's tallest skyscraper after SWFC (sic), and will be 100 fl. Also, the hole will be 48m deep in total. News coming soon (I hope).

Funnest thing is, this tower was supposed to be just 78m tall at first

I like the fact that the buildings are sitting together and not in a a big open field surrounded by nothing but grass and trees. Chongqing reminds me of New York in how tightly packed buildings are. Love it.

Great job, macpolo! This should be the format on how start a thread on City/Metro Compilations. It makes it more interesting and it gives users point of view on what the a city will look like in the future.

You deserve this!

GLOBAL FINANCE CENTER






VLA is in the process of further development of our proposal for an international, invited competition for the 'Global Finance Center' in the CBD of Chongqing, China. The proposal was delivered July 31st, 2007. The project is for a skyscraper located in downtown Chongqing, and with its 70 floors and 300m height it will dominate the skyline of this part of the city. The tower will house retail, a hotel, commercial and residential space for a total of 180,000 m 2.

The primary architectural objective for this proposal is to create a landmark building in Chongqing’s CBD which ensures a strong visual presence for the Global Finance Center both at the street level and in the skyline of the city overall. The proposal also seeks to create a modern building which retains a relationship to the region. Other objectives include reinforcing urban relationships surrounding the site, creating a lively and enticing urban environment at the base of the tower which will be the optimal background for exclusive retail, and providing semi-outdoor green spaces as an amenity for the offices and apartments.
