New supertall in Chongqing. 75~ floors, 300m+; 50~ floors; 200m+, 40~ floors; 160m+, 35 floors, 150m+. The project is called 重庆工贸大厦, something like Chongqing Trade and Industry Building, rather generic name. The project might change 100 times before they release the final proposal, you know.

SHENYANG | Wulihe City (Under construction): 2x300m. This large development by Shimao Group composed by a many residential and office towers is located at Wuilihe District and will be built in several phases. The main body is a 300m twin tower project whose final height remains unclear. Thread



Very bad news for Shenyang Shimao Wulihe City, at least from a supertall-centric point of view. The two main towers have been cancelled. On the other hand the rest will be taller than expected and another office tower was added. The space for the main skyscrapers will host a park now. Two residential towers were cancelled too.








Office towers: 285m, 285m, 270m, 245m, 230m, 180m.
Residential towers: 4x177m, 58 floors; 2x171m, 56 floors; 2x165m, 54 floors; 159m, 42 floors; 147m, 48 floors; 135m, 44 floors; 105m, 34 floors.

More Shenyang supertalls might be cancelled. They said that the twins of the the huge Dragon Dream Pacific Center development might be just 235m tall. Still unconfirmed. This project has been revised downwards once and again. 4x400m, 2x400m, 2x350m, 2x300m+, and now this. Anoter 15x200m+ were expected within that project too. Now who knows. The last 'official' release said 2x300m+ though, we'll see.

The supertall for Sun Rise development wont be built either. 165m twins instead. At first they planned 2x350m and 4x200m office towers, then 1x377m and 5x180m~. Now just this. No official too, but they even showed the new models already. Seems like Shenyang wont be a supertall first tier city... at least no yet.

On the other hand, there are still many sueprtalls on going. SYFC (428m), Hang Lung (2x330m+), Richgate City (3x320m, 1x398m) and Eton Center (2x300-400m). 9 supertalls is still a lot.

TIANJIN | R&F Morgan Building (Approved): 415m. There is almost no info by the moment about this project developed by R&F Properties in Xiangluowan CBD of Binhai New Area. Goettsch and Partners is known to be after at least one of the proposals if not the final project. SomA model recently released shows a 500m+ tower around 100 floors for this project, but such revision remains unconfirmed by the moment. Thread



TIANJIN | Sino-Steel Tower (Under construction): 358m, 80 floors. This supertall designed by MAD Beijing based studio is located at Xiangluowan CBD in Binhai New Area. Construction has just started. Thread

SHENYANG | Richgate City (Under construction): 1x398m, 3x320m+. Not many details have been released about this large project composed by 4 supertalls and developed by Shenyang Huarui Century Group. Located at North Railway Station CBD, the hole for the monster development is being dug already. Thread


















This is the best one to guess the no. of floors.


This project seems to have changed a lot according to the last models. Still no final renders available and models are likely to be rather conceptual, not real design. We can see that they have removed one of the supertalls. On the other hand, the other towers are now far higher. Main tower might be taller than 400m instead of 398m as previosuly expected. We can count 88 floors. The other two big towers don't seem 320m anymore, likely to be well above 350m. We can glimpse 80~ floors plus a crown aroud 2-3 floors.

So, Richgate City might have changed from 1x398m plus 3x320m+ to 1x400m~, 88~ floors plus 2x350m+, 80~ floors. Also, minor towers are far higher now, we can see that several of them have more than 50 floors, they should be above 200m. IMO the project is far better now than before.

I only hope the design for the main tower is not final, looks a little tacky and looks too much like Madrid Torre Espacio. The other two big ones look perfect though.

SHENYANG | Hang Lung Plaza Twin Towers (Under construction): 2x330m~, 70~ floors. These twins by KPF will be located at Shenhe district and foundation works have started already. The Developer is Hang Lung Properties and the final heights, still unknown, are rumoured to be 388m and 358m. Thread



















No changes and still no final heights. I used the zoom to count the floors, counted 82 and 75. 86 and 78 including the projections on the roofs.

Depending on the angle these towers can look either fat and rather short or slender and very sexy. The base is too rectangular imo.

IMO we should consider the final version for Northeast WTC as a possible supertall. If we include the spire it looks around 300-310m. Roof height is supposed to be 282m, but they changed it so many times... not sure.

The 'tiny' rounded building we see here is Fangyuan Mansion. Look at this pic and notice the monster proportions of the coming skyline:




















Hang Lung looks soooo huge! Main tower indeed has 80~ floors.

Senyang and Tianjin soon will be filled with hi-rises!? Fantastic, though I am still lamenting that some of the tacky or overly busy design still appear on chinese cities. But overall the design is better than before.

Is it just me - since I am new to this particular thread - but it seems that there seems to be a new Chinese supertall announced every week???

And sometimes not just a supertall but a whole entire city plan? It looks like China is building a new city centre every month!
