Any "city" with 32,000,000 people is going to have some air pollution problems, and I am not saying the air here is clean, but I have seen/tasted much worse in China. Chongqing was known as a foggy city before the smog came, so a lot of the haze is naturally occurring.

It does make it difficult to take nice pictures as clear days are quite rare. We were making a video of the compounds we relocate foreigners (youtubed soon) and it took us a month for enough clear days to get it filmed.

Rate of development to increase

I just saw on CCTV (Chinese Central Television) that China's State Council has just approved a measure to further accelerate Chongqing's development. This will require the local government to speed up its current rate of development in both urban and rural areas.

This is really good news, because Chongqing's current rate of development is obviously way too slow.

I noticed that as well about the Twins when I drove by the other day. I assumed they were working on the interior.

Not that this is all high rises, but here are some links to our hot properties

This apartment is about 10 minutes away from Shapingba and has a very large yard and patio being on the ground floor. It is in a brand new development (Tiandi's first phase completed) that will soon be one of Chongqing's hottest new areas to live.

This townhouse has been recently renovated and is one of the most western designed townhouses at the Fragrant Forest Compound. (Longhu)
http://www.maxxelli.net/download/MRE...020081218).pdf

Finally another villa at Poly Golf, which has become the most popular villa compound in Chongqing. A very modern design with beautiful views of the golf course.

Something great about Jialing Fanying.

455m, 105 floors.
260m, 52 floors.
198m, 47 floors.

Final heights probably. Shui On said the main tower would be revised upwards to 460m to surpass ASE Center, but it isn't confirmed.
