Chongqing: One of Two Supertall Capitals of the World

I predict that, given the ambitious projects sprouting around the city, Chongqing would come up with a 600-meter tall project anytime next year.

I mean, supertall projects in Chongqing get revised to bigger and taller versions almost everytime. Who knows, Chongqing might come up with even more bizarre projects than Dubai.

@ ZZ-II

I'm really wondering why construction activity in Dubai has already slowed down a bit? I mean, it feels like Chongqing is building more high-rises in absolute terms than Dubai. Am I right regarding this observation?

The amount of construction going on in Chongqing is really insane.

The only thing I find a bit strange, is the fact how little attention this city gets in the global media. Everybody knows of Shanghai and Dubai. But how many people in the West have heard of Chongqing compared to these???

Chongqing Hotpot Art Tower Hotel, 250-300m according to the press. I hope this abomination hasn't any chance.

New updates

Guotai opera to be started.








Capecoral residential project. The 3 main towers are 180m+, 58 floors.




Sheraton twins (2x218m)


Lanko complex, these are 163m and 161m. The main tower (268m) hasn't been started I think.




Kempinski Hotel site, next to Lanko complexes, Asia Pacific Town, etc.


Another pic of Global Financial Building site (formerly known as Fortune Center), 330m~. The final design will be published in a couple of weeks.

I had a Chongqing hotpot when I was in China, it was great.

Why name a tower after one though?
