Sun Valley:450m+, 100 floors; 4x200m+, 50+ floors. Yingli Properties' tallest project in town. Officially announced to be composed by one tower of 100 floors and another four above 50. The design is likely to be rather conceptual, and the outcome is expected to be drastically revised downwards. This project is located in Jiangbei district, next to Future International tower. Several on going projects by Yingli properties within the area were merged into this single large development.



First tower of Sun Valley : TianHe Tower 3 designs

Can't really go wrong with those designs, except for the weird one. Chongqing is just exploding beyond... well, anything.

I like the second one, the 1st one is too common a design nowadays.

I quite like the weird looking one too, Chinese aesthetic there.

Never lose hope. Remember SWFC, on hold for 6 years, everybody made fun of it in SSC, and we all thought it was dead forever. And now...

I agree, things will eventually go through in Chongqing, it is now the fastest growing city in China coupled with the "Go West" project, I doubt any other Chinese cities can match its speed at the moment.

One of the 52 floor towers of KPF Financial Street will start construction next month and host a Westin hotel scheduled to open on December 2010.

Google earth poster showing all main projects in Chongqing city center. The image doesn't include some supertalls too far away from the center like Jialing Fanying (443m), Dadukou Twin Towers (2x385m), etc.

with so many office space being dump in the city,ChongQing may be heading toward real estate melt down.
In fact already happen,in Hainan,when real estate melt down,forcing developers to sell in cheap so the bank can collect there loan.

This city is amazing! I watched a special on tv a month ago about this city. Ted Koppel a famous reporter from here in the United States did a four part series on Chongqing.

My figures may be wrong but the series pointed out that when it is all said and done there will be 20 Million people within city limits and 10 Million on the outskirts. Will this be the largest city in china eventually or maybe it is already? The series also pointed out that Chongqing is the epicenter for 300 million chinese in this part of China. I couldn't believe the amount of American and other foreign companies that have set up operations there. It was amazing.

I want to send out a big kudos to you guys in China for putting on a great Olympics. It was the best that I have ever seen. Thanks for the memories.

You may be right but not to forget that the "Go West" project is also playing its part here, FDI is encourage to flow to the Western region, most notably Chongqing, I even heard that (can't remember from where though) a lot of incentives are being offered for setting up business in Chongqing.

C'mon you can't really compare Chongqing to Hainan, I would hardly say Hainan is experiencing any tremendous growth, it is just merely an island in the south of China, people ususally just go there for tourism and with a modest population, I doubt you can really compare it to the monstrous Chongqing. A lot of attention is for Chongqing at the moment in China.
