Subway plans extended, they'll construct 14 lines in a long term, instead of 10.

These must be apart of the One City Central project (by Zhongyu Group), right? Perhaps the first construction phase?

The buildings will be between 29 and 31 floors tall, situated on the roof of a shopping mall.

Multiple Chinese news articles today claiming Chongqing will build 620m+ twin towers.....Not sure if it's for real or if it's just rumours.

Huanghua International project finally prep. Around 60 floors, must be taller than 200m. But who knows if they are starting the main tower or the res ones only. Pics by 小序.

Financial Center, by SOM




Residential towers by Since Group. 1x52 floors and 2x42 floors. I don't know the heights, but since the tallest tower has a spire maybe it'll reach 200m.

Maersk to ink deal on Yangtze port terminal
17 May 2010

COPENHAGEN, May 17 (Reuters) - Denmark's A.P. Moller-Maersk <MAERSKb.CO> aims to invest in new port facilities in China's fast-growing provincial capital of Chongqing to develop a key inland harbour on the Yangtze River, a senior executive said.

The port terminals wing of the Danish shipping and oil group will sign a memorandum of understanding this week with state-owned Chongqing Port & Logistics Group in conjunction with a visit to Denmark by Chinese Commerce Minister Chen Deming.

Soren Hansen, senior director of corporate business development in APM Terminals, said no money would change hands at this stage, but Maersk aimed to invest in the Yangtze facility in the short term.

"Growth rates are so high and concentrated on the river so obviously this is a place we really want to be," Hansen told Reuters.

He said that the entire region of Sichuan, which is home to 100 million people, only has an annual throughput of 400,000 twenty-foot containers (TEU) annually, so the growth potential is large.

Europe's busiest container hub, the port of Rotterdam, handled 9.7 million TEU in 2009.

Chongqing Launches Global Rail-sea Channel

CHONGQING, May 19, SinoCast -- Chongqing yesterday held a ceremony for the opening of its global rail-sea channel, which enables the southwestern Chinese city to compete head-to-head with coastal cities like Shanghai and Suzhou.

It will take less time to fly from Chongqing to Europe through the channel than form coastal areas to the continent, explained Mu Huaping, a local official.

It will take about two days to ship containers from Chongqing to Shenzhen, south China, and 25 days from Shenzhen to Europe. In contrast, it will take 28 days to carry containers from Shanghai, east China to Europe.

These days, Chongqing has been busy improving local transport. Earlier this year, Chengdu-Chongqing High-speed Railway broke earth with a designed maximum speed of 350 kilometers per hour, and it is scheduled to be completed in 2014.

With a total length of 308 kilometers, the railway will absorb a total investment of CNY 39.89 billion for its construction. The travel by train between Chongqing and Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province, southwest, will be shortened to only one hour after the completion of the project, 66 percent of which will be bridges and tunnels.

OMG about the highspeed rail.

In fact, it is already running - as I just traveled the Chongqing-Chengdu route 3 times. Speeds maxed out at 207 km/h but we had to stop many times in order to wait for passing trains going the other way.

It appears most of the new construction will be in Chongqing itself, as in the municipality we maxed at 165 hm/h but bumped up to 207 km/h max in Sichuan outside of Chengdu. When traveling along the route, I noted construction activity (tunnels, bridge pylons/tower cranes) NUMEROUS times, particularly in mountaineous Chongqing rural and ex-urban [which coincidentally is also where we had to stop frequently due to single track].

This current highspeed link took just under 2.5 hours, and is already faster than flying when factoring in security checkin and baggage. It is also markedly cheaper, as first class car 1 ticket cost 119/121 CNY each way.

I heard there is plans (construction?) for highspeed Chongqing-Xian (eventually on to Beijing); China is taking the lead on highspeed rail construction.

Zero-Emissions Design, Chongqing, China
http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...pload_id=14143

Architects Woods Bagot and engineering firm Buro Happold have launched a model for large-scale sustainable development, which they say will
‘significantly advance’ the construction industry's contribution to achieving a zero carbon economy by 2050. Details of the project called Zero-
Emissions Design - or Zero-E - were unveiled at the 2010 Bloomberg BusinessWeek Global Green Business Summit in Shanghai. A pilot project will
look at the development potential of an industrial site on the Yangtze River in Chongqing, China.

The test case proposes a 450,000 sq m mixed-use development, featuring an 82-storey office and hotel tower, which will continually monitor
and react to internal and external climatic conditions for maximum performance. While current approaches to sustainable development reduce
the environmental harm caused by the construction and operation of new buildings, ZERO-E goes beyond reducing the impact of new
development to creating buildings that contribute to the healing of compromised human and ecological systems.

The joint initiative follows the UN Compact on climate change and China's commitment, made last November, to reducing carbon dioxide emissions
per unit of GDP by 40-45% by the year 2020, compared with 2005 levels. Ross Donaldson, chief executive of Woods Bagot, said: "The construction
industry has known for some time that increasing the sustainability of buildings and cities is key to turning the tide on climate change. The Zero-e
pilot project confirms that using the expertise and tools available to us today far greater advances in building performance-those that comprise
zero emissions design-are currently within the industry's capabilities. This initiative is not only an entirely new model for sustainable design, it is
also a call to action and an invitation to our development and construction partners to join us as we lead the way to a sustainable future."

Gavin Thompson, Buro Happold's managing director, added: "As an industry we must take urgent steps to change the planning, design and
construction of the built environment if we are to help deliver a zero carbon global economy. Zero-e demonstrates the power of combining our
significant expertise, blurring the boundaries between architect and engineer and represents a watershed moment for our industry."
