Now you can see current photos taken from the construction site; it can't take you an amount of time away.
They are preparing for the grand concrete pour on the ground of the foundation.
I hope the tower will rise in the next year.
It's one of my favorite supertall projects

I think it looks terrible, except the Golden Finance itself. Chinese megaprojects like this only look good from above. In streetview, there is so much green space wasted between the buildings which makes it look strange.

It's usually this way. It goes back to DanWei I think, the whole "compound" with green dpace/ammenities. There are very few dense (in terms of what we're used to) cities in China. Chingching is one of those cities.

I don't think this has anything to do with the danwei policy. It's more about creating liveable cityscapes (especially where there is too much pollution). IMO, Canton is a fine example of contemporary urban planning. I would much love to visit Zhujiang new town.
Moreover, the "Chinese dream" today is for everyone to have a car, so it doesn't matter that neighbourhoods are less dense, since the idea is that you'll be able to drive everwhere; cities like Tianjin have the luxury of space to plan and build as they see fit.

But that's the great thing about it. It feels good once there actually is open space between the buildings as opposed to cramped and claustrophobic planning you will see in some cities in the US downtowns or Britain where all you have is a narrow pedestrian walk, street and buildings. The point is that due to high-rise buildup you get more open and public space on the ground level as opposed to lowrise build up (or dense high-rise buildup like in Chicago or NYC) where they use more ground space for buildings. So in this case you simply get more stuf: buildings, wider streets, wider pedestrian space AND lots of greenery. This is better than NOT having some of that.

That plan in the picture may indeed not look that good (I wonder if its final? Or just someone's idea?) but look at Zhujiang New Town in Guangzhou... it must be the best piece of urban planning I have ever seen. And it actually is planning per se as opposed to random buildup according to the demands and narrow commercial needs of random developers and/or opinion of local residents who have no clue about urbanization anyway...

Hey Pansori, do you have a link for a rendering of this ZhuJiang New Town in GuangZhou? Thanks.

I don't mean that it itself is (those work units don't really exist anymore) but the mentality of separating buildings AWAY from the street/activity is at odds with our preference of direct interaction.

Exactly. But you see this skyscrapers-in-a-park idea everywhere in the world unfortunately. I would rather see more New York-style 'canyons' forming. It looks all very car-orientated. However I do like that there are very big skybridges over those roads. That's gonna be awesome. And the park going over the road is very cool too.

green little park areas like that will make the cities a lot cleaner though, i really like it especially in chinese cities, where it's needed. build up so you have more room around for at least a bit of nature.

Just do a search
http://image.baidu.com/i?tn=baiduima...AD%D0%C2%B3%C7

The Chinese name is 珠江新城

You can also have a look at my photos which were taken in April 2011 (from post #50 onwards): http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1387956&page=3

If I am not mistaken this must be one of the first comprehensively planned and implemented (in one go) urban mega-projects in China. Perhaps somewhat comparable to Tianjin Binhai New Area development and Shenzhen Qianhai Water City development which is yet to kick off.
