Interesting finding. I guess this one might exceed or at least scratch the 200m mark.


Here are again some more projects going on in Wuhan:




Zhongqiao Mansion



Lotus Super Center














G11 Residental



五环科技股份有限公司新建办公大楼



汉飞II



东谷银座



台北名居



Phoenix City (33 floors)









新光大厦 - 91m - 24 floors (maybe already finished)



武汉市科技大厦



武汉市骏华大厦



鸿源国际公馆

...and the rest for today:

The new main office building of Wuhan Technical University:



A new gymnasium:





And finally a really huge project in Hankou that I somehow totally forgot to present here until now although it has been under construction for quite some time: Longwangmiao International Plaza







This picture gives a good impression about the projects' huge scale. See how good it is still visible within Hankou`s highrise skyline and remind that this is only the first half of the whole complex:


Same here. Compare to the renderings:






Here u can see the project's whole area in the south of Hankou's Qiaokou District:

(it`s about 430m from one end to the other)

Some shorter towers in a chinese city for a change being proposed. However, most of them look hideous without character, remniscent of 1960s commie blocks.

If u take the time to read through the whole thread u should be able to realize that there is more to be built than just a few commie blocks. Anyway, I can hardly see how any English city (London included) can compete with Wuhan`s construction boom, so what is ur arrogance built on??

for your information I am a fully Chinese living here in Britian but proud of China and its development and I have read the entire thread and I did not personally bash the construction boom of wuhan, all I said was that some or most proposals looked a little hideous, not all. And I am entitled to my opinion here, plus I wasn't being arrogant at all. Let's not turn this into debate

As u wish. U r entitled to call whatever u want hideous, but at least even u should admit that this kind of "hideous" development is quite a step forward for a city like Wuhan...

I don't think they are anywhere near hideous. When you consider the huge amount of construction involved, you can't expect every of them look at SWFC. I think they are fairly good, and is indeed a 'great leap forward' for Wuhan.

...

Small Update on Shimao's Splendid Yangtze Project in Hanyang (originally posted by "mt" on 摩天汉世界.) :


Phase II is said to have already started recently. What u can see here is merely Phase I though. Nice to imagine that there will still be much higher towers following...













++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Shui On Land's Yongqing Area Redevelopment Project called "Wuhan Tiandi" also started construction:




Here are two more recent renderings showing how the whole area should finally look like ( Pay attention to the new design of the tall tower! )

Wow!! What a huge half done thing we have there!! We have to find out the height, it should be well above 250m

Top International Building

@Zorg:

I am afraid u r too optimistic about its height. What u see there is - as mentioned before - just the first phase of the Splendid Yangtze Project, which (the 1st phase, not the whole project) consists of residental towers only. I guess the highest building u can see in these pics won't exceed 170m - at least not by much. It is (in my opinion) because of two reasons that the tall one there indeed looks very high:

1) The angle from where the photos have been taken give the impression of a slim tower, but it is much bulkier actually (see pics below)

2) Hanyang's skyline - especially in that area - is still quite flat. Therefore even a 150m tower appears kind of huge.

Our fellow user "Hankow" provided these pics before. U can compare the buildings of phase 1 (marked red) again to that ~250m tower in the center:











U see what I mean? Anyway, I like it how even this medium size building actually looks very tall. Just wait for the really big ones rising up there...

Thanks for your detailed explanation, mate ^_^

Anyway, I mixed in my mind the construction pics of Splendid Yangtze with the render of Wuhan Tiandi project, that's why I supposed that tower would be huge when finished Btw, how tall is Wuhan Tiandi tallest? That one should be 250m+ for sure.

Let me see what we have for today...

...A project that I presented a few moths ago (see page 2, post 30)) has been finished meanwhile - The office building of China 11th Railway Bureau (height ~100m):






...another residental project in Hankou's Jiang'an District which seems to include also a mixed use tower (see 2nd pic: Office, hotel? I don't know yet...)






...and a new main building for the administration of Hanyang District:

Those cheap and laziness style from Chinese made the whole building ugly. You can see the stick and everything. I bet it light up as night like some cheap shit. Chinese need to know that there are other color beside RED, be a little more creative. Chinese is over using the red. Just like they over using the the word "China/sino". Ancient china had design great thing but this generation can't seem to think of anything but cheap over use culture design. Ever been to a Chinese house? Fake plants, buying over using painting of tiger,dragon, and every other Chinese culture.I'm not just talking Mainland Chinese but chinese from Taiwan and Hong kong too. Ever been to a Chinese restaurant in the west? It all look the same and over used color and design.
