Excellent news, maybe a 500m for CQ at last. But I see too few 200m+ in Jiangbei plan and too many 100-180m LOWrises

It would be a HUGE pity that they cut the Park Place to 250m, really annoying since those twins are very cute. But those renders are 280m+ for sure, you can count 70 floors, 5 of them are part of the podium which is a mall, so the towers can't be 250m I think... We should also notice that the lower half of the towers look to have high ceilings...


Btw, maximum height = fascism. They should impose minimum heights instead.

City of bridges will get another two.
Qiansimen Bridge (千厮门大桥), from Chaotianmen to Jiangbei and Dongshuimen Bridge (东水门大桥) from Chaotianmen to Nanbin Road, Danzishi. Both bridges are double decker, they'll contain the subway line 6.

Also, they are planning two new tunnels (in red).


Chaotianmen nowadays

New renders of Kempinski Hotel, it will be started soon. Final figures are 217m and 57 floors. Looks much better than in previous images.


Model of the area. You can see the Kempinski Hotel, Nanbin Conference Center (built) and the huge project of Asia Pacific City (u/c), whose main tower should be around 220m.

now im seriously worried

these days ,highrise for chongqing is almost like unstopable,everyday we have a new

project,count the plan,1*500m, 1*400m,13*300m,as for 200m,i know at least 50 projects, lower than 200m,its impossible for me to count ...

can chongqing digest so many towers?
i know it will take years to compelet them all,but still,u see the number...

zorg told me not to worry,since chongqing dont have much place to build some huge lowrise , highrise is obligatoire...

what do u guys think?

plus
these days ,some chongqing gov 's people have just got promotion(Wang Yang),if u know politics of China,ull know how huge it is, as for more,Bo Xi Lai is coming here,search online if u wanna know who he is...so take shenyang for example,i dont have to say anything to explain why shengyang has got so many 400m towers these years, now chongqing is in the same situation...lets see what is coming.....for us ,these messy politics only means projects in this thread r just a preview...

sorry about my english,if u cant understand what im trying to say

@MacPolo:

Well, for us skyscraper-freaks here, it is of course nice to see so many towers rising in Chongqing. However, I often wonder if the CQ residents actually like it (or not) to be surrounded and shaded by skyscrapers almost everywhere. Perhaps many people might feel cramped by all this density and stone-built "megalomania". I mean, although I pretty much like high density as well as the whole style of CQ's cityscape, I think the city planners should not forget to create (leave?) some wide open places every here and there to avoid a claustrophobic atmosphere. What do u think?

Height is not the key but surface. Many cities build thousands of office lowrises, some horizontal complexes have an office area comparable to a supertall. They build oceans of office lowrises similar to industrial parks, whose total aera, if put together, is similar to a little CBD (something that imo is a load of shit).

But in Chongqing due to the relief you cannot do this, you have to build vertical, just like Hong Kong. There might be some horizontal developments, of course, but very few.

Anyway, the skyscraper boom in CQ is being driven by private companies, they wont waste billions of RMB in projects which are not profitable, they are not stupid.

Also, if Wuxi, Hangzhou or Suzhou can afford such huge developments, Chongqing should be able to get 10 times more projects since it is the financial hub for around 200 million Chinese, right? OMG, only Wuxi is planning around 40x200m towers! CQ has so many advantages to get a monster skyline, not only relief. There're too many cities both in Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta, there's a multipolar distribution of skyscrapers there. The cities in those areas have to "share" the amount of projects that those economic regions need in a way. That wont happen with Chongqing, unless Chengdu awakes. The Mid-West region is "unipolar", because CQ takes it all

@LordChaos80, too outdated. Shenzhen's Kingkey or GZ twins is the kind of towers I love the most

Although CQ is of course No.1 in the west, don't underestimate Chengdu. It is far from being asleep either.
