**** Chongqing! That city doesn't build shit as far as supertalls.
Yingli: dead -300
Poly: dead -300
ASE: dead
Sun Valley: dead
Unt. Intl.: lowered to ~308m
Jialing: ????
KPF: ????
How come all of these either never started or got lowered?!?

^jesus, is there a need to say "**** Chongqing"??

Yingli, Poly aren't DEAD, they are just (admittedly unfortunately) shorter. Apparently the reason for Yingli is that they want to build more 200m+ towers in the city.....which actually might be better for the skyline (should that materialise). A number of tall towers looks better than one supertall.

As a follower of Chongqing development, I do admit that it is damn frustrating. The city is vast, yet unheard of cities in China seem to be building supertalls. It does seem strange considering Chongqing's ambitions.

It's simply a case of grand expectations getting a dose of reality. Better to put projects on hold or redesign than build something that isn't ever going to be a financial or commercial success.

Check www.yingligj.com/ or bbs.classic023.com/thread-526900-1-1.html. However, it's gone from their portfolio. I don't know why. The latest news about the Sun Valley is a 68-floor supertall designed by Gensler.
