I agree with you that construction of the main tower probably won't start for a few years still; they probably will focus on building the new city first and doing this last, so that's why there's such a far away completion date, 2014.
Other 600+ starting construction this year are expected to be completed around 2014.

From what you said it seems we are not even sure where the tower is?

no he said the exact oposite.

And it does look like its the right site.

Take a look at the board of this picture, it shows tianjin 117, so that should be the site.

Interesting project!!! I am looking forward to how it will turn out and how it will affect Tianjin. Tianjin looks like rural suburban community to me, is that correct?

lol, no way, Tianjin is a major city of 8 million; however, this tower is on the city's outskirts.

The pictures in this thread will give you a start:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=399893&page=9

My avatar shows a small part of the skyline, but the photo's too small to see much.

And finally, this was the downtown skyline in August 08 (other districts have skyscrapers forests, but downtown is mostly European colonial lowrise buildings):

Interesting China has built many 400m+s, will build a couple of 600m+s, but there's no 500m+s on board.

I belive they might downsize somme projects to +500m.

Pingan Centre or China 117 might be the ones.

WTC in New York is also on the city's edge...

There're several 500-600m proposals though, including a project for Tianjin that is being designed by SOM right now

I'm quite amazed as well, but is that all the pollution in the photos? they look very misty.

Bloody hell I hate photobucket. Could somebody repost the pictures on another image host which doesn't limit bandwidth?
