SHANGHAI | Xujiahui Center (Proposed): 340m, 80~floors. Very old project re launched for several times. Formerly a 459m proposal by John Portman, it has been reduced once and again, and last announcements claim that the final design could be just 340m tall. Among the latest known proposals are SOM and Foster, and their designs are all 350-400m tall. Thread



Upwards revision to 380m confirmed. Still no images of the final version.

CHONGQING | Sun Valley (Approved): 450m+, 100 floors. The official design for this monster master plan has been released in early 2008. Not many details are known but the fact that the main tower will have 100 floors. The plan includes another 5 towers above 200m, being the tallest one around 68 floors. This is the largest project developed by Yingli properties.Thread



This one is very likely to be the final design for the main tower, they said. You can count around 95 floors, probably above 450m if we include the spires.

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



Tallest tower likely to be around 97 floors, 400m.


Well, seems like the 4 supertall version is dead given that the new render fits with the 3 supertall model.

Old version:
1x398m
3x320m
2x200m~
Nx150m+

New Version:
1x400m~
2x350m~
Nx200m~
Nx150m+

Anyway, the new version isn't official by the moment. So we'll have to wait...

Don't take this post too seriously

IMO we are witnessing an unprecedented amount of height revisions in the last weeks. Well, the gov has been trying to disencourage megaprojects for years due to overheating concerns, now the risk seems to be the opposite. This could be one of the main reasons behind of this trend.

Anyway, the need for A grade offices and luxury hotels in second tier cities is huge, therefore this boom should be justified by market trends either.

I'll list all the coming 400m+ projects by height here as well as possible revisions. Notice that most of these revisions haven't been officially confirmed. Though I'm normally too skeptical about these rumours and don't like to post them over here, I admit that skyscrapers.cn forumers are normally right about these changes and know about them weeks or even moths before they are published.


-632m: Shanghai Center. Height seems final, we can be 99.9% sure about that.

-580m: China 117 Tower (Tianjin). Unconfirmed upwards revision to 600m. The final height hasn't been released imo.

-500m+: Yujiabao Tower (Tianjin). Officially 500m and being designed by SOM. No images yet. Rumours claim final design could be as tall as 700m.

-500m+: Nanjing Lu Supertall (Tianjin). No official design, 130 floor concept model might be too exaggerated. We'll see. Long term plan anyway. In China long term can be 1 year sometimes though, lol.

-500m+: Ping An Center (Shenzhen). I'm not sure, but I think they announced that it would be above 550m. Some proposals (SOM, KPF and Nikken Sekkei) seem even taller. Rumours claim it could be 600m~. The developer is getting some financial trouble recently though...

-500m+: Baietan Tower (Guangzhou). Just a proposal. No info yet.

-500m+: Wuhan project. Recent rumour claims a 500m+ tower will be released soon in Wuhan.

-500m+: Jiangbei A13 Plot (Chongqing). No actual design, long term.

-500m+. Yangtze Star (Nanjing). Unconfirmed rumour by the moment.

-500m: Shenzhen ITC. Since the renders have been removed from the plot, maybe this project hasn't been approved and wont be built. By SOM (not sure).

-500m~: Sun Valley (Chongqing). Most proposals are well above 80 floors. Including the spires it is very likely to be close to 500m.

-460m+: Jialing Fanying (Chongqing). Final height unknown. Getting closer to 500m mark revision after revision. By KPF.

-460m: ASE Center (Chongqing). Final height remains unclear. Could be close to 490m thanks to the crown. By DLN.

-450m~: The Wharf Supertower (Suzhou). Final design unknown excepting some concept images. The press published it might be revised to 500m. By KPF.

-439m: Kingkey Finance Center (Shenzhen). Rumour claims the height is not final, but I don't believe it. By Terryl Farrell.

-438m: East Tower (Guangzhou). Height could be changed either up or downwards according to different rumours. By Wilkinson Eyre.

-431m: Chongqing IFC. Who knows whether the height is final. It is Chongqing after all. By ECADI.

-430m: Jinling Fuguang (Nanjing). Unlikely to be the final design. Long time no news anyway, could have been cancelled.

-428m: Shenyang IFC. Very likely to be final height (99%+). By AEDAS.

-415m: Lingan Tiandi (Foshan). Being designed by SOM, no images yet.

-415m: R&F Center (Tianjin). Old height. Goettsch & Partners is one of the contestants, but we know there are two designs: A Freedom Tower fake (around 400m) and a 110 floor tower (around 550m). Let's hope the final design is the later.

-400m+x2: Suzhou Twins (Suzhou). No actual proposals by the moment.

-400m+: Ranjiaba Tower (Chongqing). New proposal, no info.

-400m+: Nanjing Suning Center. Announced to be 'above 400m'. Very unclear scale in the render, could ve really huge. Who knows if the design is final anyway. Being designed by AEDAS (rumour).

-400m: Eton Center (Shenyang). Spires might make it 420m+. By John Portman.

-400m~: New proposal in Wuxi. No info at all, 86~ floors.

-398m: Richgate City (Shenyang). Tallest tower will have 98~ floors. Likely to be above 400m.

-388m~: Eton Center (Dalian). Unconfirmed revision to 455m (rumour). By RTKL.

-380m+: Shenyang Kerry Center (Shenyang). Will be released in December 2008. By KPF (rumour).

-380m: Xujiahui Tower (Shanghai). Recently revised from 340 to 380m. No images of the final project yet, and crossing fingers for further revisions.

-350m+: Danzishi Tower (Chongqing). No actual design released. Could reach 400m.

-350m: Financial Street (Chongqing). Final height easily above 400m. By KPF.

-350m+x2: Hangzhou Twins. No actual proposal yet. Some models show 400m~ twins.

-331m: Global Financial Building (Chongqing). Could be changed for a tacky 400m~ tower by C.Y. Lee, but very unlikely.

-308m: Yuzhou Hotel (Chongqing). Could be relaunched as a 400m~ tower according to recent rumours.

-300m~x4: South Station Cluster (Tianjin). Semiconfirmed revision to 2x420m twins.

Insn't amazing how 80% of the coming 400m+ projects are considering some kind of upwards revision?

Fan made render by 老牙哥 showing Shenyang Kerry Center, whose actual design and height is expected to be released on next month. The render is based on the concept design they used for the city models. RTKL is supposed to be the architect. Expected height: 388m.

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



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



More renders of Xiangluowan CBD. Seems like there's a new design for R&F Building. It's the tallest one. You can also see Sino-Steel Plaza. Plus, they expect a third supertall in this area, around 320m, whose actual design remains unknown. Would be called CATIC Tower / 中航技大厦.

More concept images of Yujiabao Financial Area supertall in Tianjin. Officially 500m+, being designed by SOM. They say that the final design could be as tall as 700m.

The new design for the 500m one disappoints me a lot
I love the former design
Why do not adopt it?

SUZHOU | The Wharf Supertower (Approved): 420m+. This landmark project developed by The Wharf Holdings will be located at the core of Suzhou Jinji Lake new CBD. The tower is being designed by KPF. According to latest news, the final design might be around 500m.



Concept model, seems quite different from preliminar renders. Upwards revision to 500m remains unclear.
