This is the current design, but who knows if it is final. Still no official height. Previous press releases claimed the main tower would have 100 floors.

Final design? The main tower is very disappointing, the rest of the masterplan looks stunning!

Preliminary layout for some of the secondary towers.

The height of the main tower is unlikely to match the first estimations, maybe not even a supertall. We'll see.


On the other hand seems like they'll build more phases with shorter towers.

And more bad news for CQ. This one is likely to be well below 300m. Only 277m, 68 floors. No official. 300m, 70 floors according to the round figures in this article.
http://cq.qq.com/a/20100910/000053.htm

The design is supposed to be by Gensler. Images posted by tintin.

Gay design. It looks like a Shanghai Tower wannabe.

New renders posted by tintin. Allegedly by Gensler. 315.5m, 69 floors.
As usual they failed to provide or even mention the source of this information.









This project, as every other Yingli development, will be a huge disappointment it seems. As usual Yingli has fooled us for years announcing a huge tower which in the end will be far shorter and less interesting than any of the countless fake proposals released over the last years. 100 floors, it was all over the press! These liars are even worse than Shimao! At least, in case they build Gensler project, they wont build something ugly as they are doing in Jefangbei but a very decent design.

My only hope is that according to the latest renders posted at #89, the masterplan may be enlarged adding up to another 10 towers. Exchanging height for more towers is acceptable, if they truly build them

Since the rest of the towers, in case they ever build them, are likely to be developed in a long term, I'm changing the title of the thread. We may open new threads on the future as they release clear information about other towers within the Sun Valley masterplan.

This is what we truly know besides all that forum-fabricated mythology:
http://cq.qq.com/a/20100916/000612.htm
300m, 70 floors [crossing my fingers here, so that it wont be just 280-299.99m], according to this article released in late 2010. No doubt, the final project will miss the announced 100 floors by far, Yingli loses face again.

Proposal by Hassell.



The Tianhe Mansion Tower is designed as a landmark building for the Guan Yin Qaio district. The super high-rise tower comprises 66 storeys and is 312 metres in height.

The concept for the tower evolved from the historical pole housing structures or 'diaojiao', perched over terraced landscapes.

Surrounded on all sides by existing properties, the tower is located in a green pocekt of parkland in the city. Circular in plan and designed to be viewed in the round, the core offset assists with natural daylight penetration.

The podium is seen as an extension of the parkland and is shrouded in a canopy of foliage, while the external envelope of the main tower is a combination of skin and structure.

Portions of this system are operable, providing natural ventilation and air supply to the mechanical system. Pocket sky gardens appear across the facde, throughout the entirety of the building.

As with the base, the pole structure continues beyond the top of the tower, forming a delicate crown.

Another proposal. Also by Hassell. In the Chinese version they include that the height is 290m only.


The city of Chongqing lies between two mountain ranges at the intersection of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. The region is known for its astonishing scenery of mountain and river gorge.

The steep and dramatic landscape of the surrounding terrain continues into Chongqing itself, famously known as the ‘Mountain City’.

The Rock is a 60-storey commercial tower in Chongqing. Its form is generated as the logical, contextual response to the topographical features that surround the city. The structure is intended to be both natural and embedded in its surroundings, at the same time being a distinctive and recognisable sculptural form.

The office floor consists of a traditional central core with one row of columns along the perimeter edge, creating column-free space internally. A five-storey restaurant at the top of the tower provides dramatic views of the city.

At the street level, a four-storey retail podium and public plaza create activity and life around the base of the tower

The Rock is inspired by Alberto Giacometti’s 1934 bronze sculpture, Cube.
