Project restarted

Yes it has really restarted, completion is planned for end 2014... Bit more realistic. There is a definite construction schedule and although there is still some designing to be done... (landscape and interiors), the steel structure should start soon. National Geographic are negotiating to produce a Megastructeres TV programme, this is now almost agreed and filming should start soon... You can follow the progress on Twitter ' @songjiangquarry '. If interested...

Few corrections are in order.
Yes - it is an old abandoned stone quarry - a man made hole. There are no waterfalls there as yet. We are planning to create one opposite the hotel... This is an example of clever use of a 'brownfield' site that nobody knew what to do with and improve its landscape.
- hotel has 2 levels above the ground level and 17 below. Currently only one level is under water and will contain some guest rooms and some public areas and restaurants. They will all face an aquarium.
We are meeting a National Geographic production company and the client to progress the Megastructures T V programme. You can follow our progress on Twitter @songjiangquarry

Here's another quarry in the same area, Chenshan Quarry which has been changed to a "Quarry Garden". The design won 2012 ASLA Design Award.

Another update. As Atkins are no longer involved in this project - Quarry Associates Design Studio has been formed to complete the final design tasks and see the hotel to its construction. Currently the landscape scheme is being finalised with the observation walkway (similar to Grand Canyon in US) as a priority. Hoping to complete the facade design soon too. However the project is still over the budget and another area reduction exercise is under way. The site will get very busy in the new year as the superstructure should start then. National Geographic have now signed contract with the client for the Megastructures TV programme so everything is on course for the filming to start soon too... The producers would like to catch some of the Quarry blasting on film .. Should be spectacular...

In The Future Projects in China beating Bennoy and other top international Architects to it... Quite something. You can follow our progress on [email protected]

Yes that is right... Hotel completion in 2015, however the National Geographic Megastructures programme is scheduled to be released earlier.
