It is an opera house: Cathay Opera House.

I believe there isn't a thread for it, but somewhere in the Chongqing construction thread someone posted renders and construction pics of it.

That is because the Chinese use various names interchangeably. I believe the correct name for the red building is "Cathay Art Centre" (国泰艺术中心).

I like the earlier designs better, but the current form is interesting. It looks like an old WTC tower with an arrow in it.

Hard to judge accurately, but there doesn't appear to be much progress on additional floors in awhile.
