Hmm... Is it only me or do these heights not appear a little excagerated?





@zorg: good job with ur Wuhan overview! Thx alot. One little mistake though: The Building on the picture below is not Wuhan Central station. If I remember right is is some governmental office building. However it is quite far away from any railway.

Impressive, why dont have this great projects in Spain ?

The things are being made in China are incredible and also the few knoweldge we have in Western Countries about it. Let me tell u an anecdote. A few months ago I was with a classmate, who rules a video shop. There was a film whose cover was a photo of Pudong

I asked him if he knew the city of the cover (I already knew it). He said that he thougth it was a science-fictional one as Coruscant, that it dont exist really

Construction of Wuhan International Fare Center started





With a total investment of 7.83 billion Yuan Wuhan International Fare Center certainly is one of the key projects within the city┤s current development. The 25 hectares sized area will not only be home to the fare center itself, but also to a 40+ storeyed office tower, a grand hotel as well as a conference hall. Completion is scheduled for fall 2008. Major players of French industry are highly anticipating the project in which they invested 0.9 billion yuan themselves. The city of Wuhan is known to be the first adress for France┤s China-business, year by year attracting more than 30% of the country┤s total investment into China.

Wuhan Tianhe Airport new terminal under construction





More than 7200 tons of steel are used to complete the second terminal of Wuhan┤s Tianhe airport, which will provide 140000 m▓ of new service area. The new terminal is supposed to start operation in fall 2007 and will support Wuhan┤s ambitions to emerge as China┤s central traffic hub.

@zOrg: wow, that updated plan for the exhibition center looks even better. thx for sharing...

@godblessbotox (and those who are interested) : Unfortunately, good quality renderings of Wuhan projects are hard to find on the web. They still lack a little about web-based marketing and presentation, which is a pity as there is so much going on that the city can be proud of. There are actually three big railway station projects on the go in Wuhan which is a unique thing in the whole of China ( even Beijing and Shanghai "only" have two big stations! ) and a result of the central government's plan to establish Wuhan as the central traffic hub of the country. Here are a few pics I found on chinese websites (I hope I can still find better ones later and also plan to make an extra thread about the new stations of Wuhan):

1) Wuchang Station

The old one (already torn down):


The new one (design resembling a palace of ancient Chu-culture of Hubei province)


Inside new Wuchang station:

2) New Wuhan Central Station

3) Hankou Station

...to be added later
