Shanghai is located on a huge plain --> plenty of room for spreading out --> less incentives to build tall

Chongqing is mountainous --> little developable land --> incentives to go up

I like the spire. I think the point of the spire is to blend together modern and tradition architecture. If you look at Chinese pagodas the spires are almost the same as the one that is found on this building. Also Hongyadong is mainly composed of traditional style architecture so that maybe the reason this tower had a traditional spire.

On a side note, some people may think Hongyadong sounds/looks Korean is due to the "gya" and "dong" part.

I'm sorry for bring this old thread back, but it seems that there hasn't been any news or info lately whether this has begun construction or whether it's cancelled.
