To the contrary, I think they look like slums. In several years they will look as dated as the Tours Aillaud in Paris, or the Riverside Plaza in Minneapolis.

I wonder how they are planning to handle the growing traffic, the metro network including the lines UC and planned is IMO not enough to handle all the people that are going to work in all those towers. The chaotic road network is like those in cities like central London, Paris and Madrid, all hell to drive in during rush hour, even though they have excellent public transport moving billions of commuters. And since the city sits on hills, walking any further than a few blocks is out of the question. The day Chongqing reaches car ownership similar to those cities, 0.6-0.7 cars per inhabitant, the road network will collapse and 24H traffic jams will be the norm.

Underground city highways network, it's in planning for a while i think. Chongqing is to become the most important center for whole that part of the country, so i'm sure that they can realize such an ambitious projects.

I don't think you realised that it wass developed by one of China's most respected LUXURY property developer-Longfor group. This group never disappointed its FANS and it has the best customer reputation amongst Chinese property developers. You should look at Longfor's old projects. They are CONSTANTLY well maintained unlike those ugly LOW END apartments in Paris or in the US.

This city is well known to be a multi-centered city, otherwise you'll see far more office towers in the peninsula than it is today. I agree that Chongqing should build faster its public transport particularly subways though.

Yes, that one looks very nice, but is clearly a copy of Chicago's Aqua.

What a blatant ripoff! This is a carbon copy of the Aqua tower in Chicago.

The architect should be publicly executed for forgery and lack of ingenuity.
