That is an amazing photo! Almost a surreal mix of old buildings cramped between high skyscrapers and malls. And I love all those roofs.

Yea but it looks kinda messy there, maybe because of this mist/fog/smog thing. (Personal opinion)

Can't wait to see what Chongqing will become in 2020.

CQ is doing just fine. Yes it is a bit gritty, but grit is what makes big cities urban.

Z0rg, I am surprised you don't live in Chongqing. ..... AND never been (??)

(is that really true?)

I can't believe I'll be visiting this city in October. The smog/fog looks cool to me, we'll see how it is when I get there.

be sure to give a report out when you come back - so we can get the word out about CQ but also have another's 'outside prospective' of the city.

No it's not. That figure is for the entire municipality which covers an area the size of Austria.

Penny, you're mistaken.

The area of Chongqing per wikipedia is smaller than Austria. The difference between Chongqing and other world cities' area is not as built up (YET) throughout and Chongqing contains a very significant amount of land that will never be developed - for a variety of reasons (geography, political, historical).

I wouldn't get too caught-up in Chongqing's land mass, I would think of the municipality more along the lines of Province or State, as it is still one of the smallest areas in China under a single government. In some cases, it would almost be easier for the world if China was consistent with the rest with municipality and instead called Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and Chongqing as prefectures (like Japan) or even provinces. But I think they wanted to distinguish between provinces and these 4 cities, giving them autonomy while the provinces have to go through the chain.

Also, Chongqing municipality it isn't as though the density is evenly spread over 82000 skm, if you actually visit the city or metropolitan area (all contained inside the municipality boundary) feels much the same of any other world mega city and looks just as spectacular.

Chongqing is the world's fastest growing city, 1 million people move into the CITY/METRO area each year, much of it from the 'rural' parts of the municipality into the rapidly expanding urban area.

So most likely not a supertall!
The new design ain't bad, but doesn't look very inventive. Reminds me of both IFC towers in Hong Kong, for example. I'd still prefer the older design.

Btw. on the board I count maximal 67 levels up to the top, that will probably make 64 floors without the roof.

Not 260 metres, actually it is 285 metres, which is the final height as Yingli says.

Well, Yingli wanna build another two skyscrapers in Chong Qing. One is the Da Ping Project in Yu Zhong District, 210m 140m*6. The other is at the Jie Fang Bei Financial Street. I know nothing about it but the height should be at least 200 metres as others in JFB Financial Street.

Maybe that's why they modify the height of it again.
