Chongqing spirt is so unique. Huge pity they aren't keeping the track of Shenzhen or Tianjin.

i meant chongqing in general.

for example financial street concord city or the nanping twins, a lot of supertalls the city had proposed that just never got any more information or got decreased in height. i remember one being decreased from over 400m to be just above 200m. it is just a shame, since this city has such a unique layout with the river and the hills.

just look at this old map by zorg and you know what i mean

Poly Tower in the center of that picture is one of the best looking skyscrapers in China.

I am not sure if they will actually knock those downs because they are apartment buildings so if they knock it down couldn't it effect other skyscrapers that looks ok? But if they don't get demolished Chongqing will look an old city that is still developing which it had done developed.
