Renders from the developer website. There're several proposals anyway, so the final design could be different.

it's released by the local interpreter in Chaoyang district city planning museum. Beijing forumer posted it to Beijingupdates.com but there's no height data from developers yet.

It seems this project is quite close to the CCTV tower, and looks so tall.
I wonder if people would able to see it from the forbidden city when it gets built, if so, that would be a visual disaster for tourists visiting the well known world heritage site.
But anyway, the building itself is a really good one.

Why a disaster? It's several miles away, if they don't like it just don't look at it.

You can already see the China World Tower from the Forbidden City, as well as the CCTV HQ, Yintai Center etc (only from certain areas though, you don't see them from down in the courtyards). Here's a photo I took back in August:

So you'll definitely see this one, although based on how much of the WTC Tower you can see in that last shot, you won't see an awful lot of it from the courtyards and most other places in the Forbidden City. And if you can, as z0rg just said, try not to look in that direction (unless you want to) and it'll be fine.

I have a different point of view. Beijing represents the confident personality of China, for its glorious ancient history, its overwhelming political, military and cultural power projecting over Asia for the past 800 years. Sometimes Beijing tends to be a bit too egoist. While Shanghai is the less confident side of China, the self-recognition of the city is based on Western Standard and Western Judgments, which is reflecting the world’s broad reality these days. As China is getting to be a more mature modern country, I think Beijing would be less arrogant while Shanghai would be more self-respect.

Oldest residents well worth saving
2 November 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

Beijing, as just about everybody knows, is full of ancient things. Palaces and royal mansions have graced the capital for centuries, as have some of the city's winding hutong lanes, courtyard houses and time-honored shops.

And some grinning, wrinkled Beijingers seem pretty ancient too, as they sit sunning themselves in parks, push mahjong tiles around the board, chat with neighbors and play with grandchildren or great-grandchildren.

While few Beijingers, even the truly old ones, are 100 years old, the capital does have many living residents - its trees - that are several centuries old.

The image Beijing often projects to the international community is of a mix of ancient and modern structures - the bending steel ribs of the Bird's Nest, the blue bubbly exterior of the Water Cube, the CCTV tower and the vast open sweep of Tian'anmen Square contrasted with the stately red hues of halls in the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. But this image leaves out the capital's surprising greenness, one of its most endearing characteristics.

The capital is full of thousands of trees and many of them are gloriously big, with wide-spreading branches. Some of Beijing's older, shaded streets, such as Guloudongdajie and Nanchizidajie, are a joy to walk down simply because they seem like long green tunnels.

True, the city doesn't seem too green in the bitter grip of winter, when the leaves are gone, or in the smoggy haze of summer. But if you get up on an elevated vantage point in the downtown area in spring or fall, you can see the foliage spreading across the old streets, parks and hutong like a refreshing green blanket.

Beijing has at least 40,000 officially ancient trees, according to the Beijing Municipal Administration Center of Parks, most of them are scholar trees, pines, junipers, gingkoes and cypresses and are in gardens, palace grounds and parks.

The authorities have put a green tag on every tree in the city verified as being older than 100. Those older than 300 have a red tag.

There are, according to the center, more than 3,600 300-year-old trees throughout the capital.

There are even a few 1,000-year-old cypresses, each about 20 meters high, in the parks and gardens at the southwestern edge of the Forbidden City.

Near the south gate of Beihai Park there are two 800-year-old, 30-meter-high whitebark pines.

Even though the trees are not trumpeted as heavily as the city's eye-catching monuments and buildings, local residents, officials and park managers are clearly concerned about keeping them in good health.

Those new to Beijing are often touched, if also a bit startled, to see workers wrapping or screening trees in parks with heavy burlap or cloth at the onset of cold temperatures, to keep winter sunscald at bay and protect delicate branches and roots.

Such winter damage, as well as drought in the summer, has taken its toll on some of the capital's old trees and Beijing's rapid development has reportedly affected the groundwater supply they rely on, leaving 20 percent of the city's ancient trees in declining health and 2 percent endangered.

So it's heartening to see Beijing officials recently spend millions of yuan on a program to rejuvenate ancient trees across the city. It is not cheap to treat these ailing old trees (sometimes as much as 500,000 yuan for a single one), but it is money well spent.

Beijing's scientific community is also helping preserve the city's legacy of ancient trees.

The genetic variety of the old trees is much less varied than that of the city's ordinary trees, according to the Beijing Science and Technology News. Efforts are already underway to clone 100 of the ancient trees using test tube tissue culture, to ensure the survival of the genes that help the trees live so long.

Such efforts are welcome because, without its pleasant foliage, downtown Beijing would lose some of its ancient charm.

No, construction did not start yet.
They must first destroy all the existing buildings of that area (which have been empty for a long time now).

Beijing's first public rent apartment building roofed
21 February 2011
Copyright 2011 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

The roof on Beijing's first government-subsidized rental apartment building is in place, local media reported Monday.

Eligible low-income earners need to take part in a lottery program before moving in. The building near Beijing's North Fifth Ring Road, consisting of 500-plus apartments, will be ready in March 2012, according to the report. The building still needs to be decorated.

Wang Weiguo is a project manager with the Ya Tai Urban Construction Group Co Ltd ¨C the company in charge of construction. He said his company is working carefully to ensure the building's quality, according to the report.

Selected tenants can live either in one- or two-bedroom apartments. The area of the one-bedroom apartments ranges from 44.19 to 48.22 square meters. The area of two-bedroom apartments ranges from 63.34 to 64.46 square meters.

There will not be a parking lot for tenants to park cars, but there is a garage underground for bicycles.

This 28-story building is 800 meters away from the nearest subway station, and it looks like an average commercial residential building.

Beijing will start the lottery program for a total of 10,000 public rent apartments as early as the first quarter of this year.

Beijing home sales slump in February
2 March 2011
Copyright 2011 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

Beijing saw sharp declines in home sales in February following the enacting of a group of measures to cool the housing market, local authorities said on Mar 1.

The city reported sales of 3,436 new homes, down 70 percent from the sales figure in January, said Beijing's real estate transaction management website run by the municipal commission of housing and urban-rural development.

Existing home sales slumped 64.3 percent month on month to 8,376 units last month, the lowest volume in 25 months.

Apart from a series of cooling measures, Zhang Dawei, an analyst with the Centaline Property in Beijing, believed the fall in supply was also among the factors behind the sales slump.

Prices of more than 90 percent of housing projects remained stable last month, Zhang said. Centaline Property projects no large correction in housing prices in the city as supply remains at low levels in the first half of 2011, he said.

In the middle of last month, the Beijing municipal government moved to prohibit home purchases by non-local registered families who have no proof of social security or income tax payments in the city for five straight years. It also prohibited new home purchases by Beijing families who own two or more apartments, and non-Beijing registered families who own at least one apartment.

The latest efforts came on top of other tightening measures, including requiring higher down payments and lending rates and a ban on mortgage loans for third homes.

Beijing to spend $11.6b building southern city
10 March 2011
Copyright 2011 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

Beijing municipal government is planning to invest 76.6 billion yuan ($11.6 billion) this year on 109 projects that includes the construction of an airport, a forest garden and affordable housing in the southern area of the city.

The funding will increase 38 percent from last year's 55.5 billion yuan that went to 103 projects, according to a statement released by the municipal government at a meeting on Mar 9.

Construction of some key projects will be started in April and October, including a forest garden along the axis of Beijing and a 51-km expressway that joins in the road network in surrounding Hebei province.

Thirty-four of the projects are scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, according to the statement.

The southern area of Beijing is composed of five districts that cover an area of 3,367 square kilometers. It had a population of 4.6 million by the end of 2008, which accounts for 27.2 percent of Beijing's total residents.
