YANTAI | World Wine City (Proposed): 300m+, 77 floors This project has been released in late 2007. There isn almost no info about it by the moment.



IPC Group (Singapore), the developer of this project, announced in November 2008 that they have cancelled this ugly proposal.

I trace my roots back to Yantai... anyway, I don't think Yantai needs a supertall now, it has lots of land and the city is more for relaxation

CHONGQING | Global Financial Building (Proposed): 331m+, 79 floors. Another of the supertalls packed at Jiefangbei core, this project has changed once and again not only its design, whose first versions were well below 300m, but also the name. From Lifan Edifice to Fortune Center, Chongqing World Financial Center and current Global Finance Center. The final design hasn't been launched. Thread




New figures confirmed. 330m~, 81 floors. Under re-re-re-re-re-re-design.

Well, the density of this project is pretty impressive, and I think I prefer that over one lonely supertall. Shenyang has enough of them planned anyway.

Well, we expected multi tower madness including a supertall The project is very nice anyway, another single development in Shenyang that has more 200m+ skyscrapers than some of the so-called global skylines.

The tables have been updated. I've deleted many old proposals (around 15 towers) because of the lack of information for too long time. However, the number of confirmed projects (built+u/c+approved) has grown from 102 to 104 since the last update (5 weeks ago).

Both tables include Architect and Developer for first time.

Supertall map.


Supertall ranking.


Ranking by city.


The thumbnail index has been updated too. It took me 3 weeks.

SHENZHEN | Ping An International Finance Center | 646m, 115 floors; 307m, 66 floors. Approved – Construction start announced. Architect: KPF (unconfirmed). Developer: Ping An Securities. This project is located at the plot B116-0040 in Shenzhen CBD and will host Ping An’s global headquarters, currently China’s second largest insurance company. The design has been chosen from a list of international contestants including KPF, SOM and Nikken Sekkei. Ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for July 2009, and it is supposed to be completed within 2013. Project thread.


SHANGHAI | Shanghai Tower | 632m, 128 floors. Construction – Foundation works. Architect: Gensler. Developer: Shanghai Tower Construction and Development. Located at Lujiazui’s Z-32 plot, the Shanghai Tower will become Lujiazui’s third supertall and the tallest structure in China when completed by 2014. The design was chosen from a wide range of proposals including several first tier international architecture firms like KPF, SOM, Foster and RTKL, as well as several national studios such as SIADR. Foster and Gensler became the two finalists in mid-2008 and the final design was released in the fourth quarter of that year. The ground breaking ceremony took place in November, and foundation works started immediately. The long-awaited megaproject will culminate the construction of Lujiazui as China Mainland’s largest CBD, whose development started in 1990. Project thread.


TIANJIN | China 117 Tower | 600m, 117 floors. Construction – Foundation works. Architect: P&T. Developer: Goldin Properties. Currently Tianjin’s tallest approved supertall, this project will become the main landmark of the newly re-developed Huayuan Industry Park area. The master plan includes tens of residential highrises and two twin towers around 70 floors. The vague appearance of the available renders and the lack of information concerning the architectural layout may indicate that the actual tower is still under design, and therefore will be probably very different from the known images. Ground breaking ceremony took place in December 2007 and the huge plot started to show fast ground works in late 2008. Project thread.


TIANJIN | Nanjing Lu Supertall | 550m+, 130 floors. Concept proposal. Formerly a 430m twin tower proposal, this concept project was changed for a single tower of 130 floors a couple of years ago. The model, as displayed at the exhibition center, shows this supertall as Xiaobailou CBD’s tallest highrise. Project thread.


NANJING | Yangtze Star | 510m. Concept proposal. Not much is known about this new proposal, supposed to be under design.


SUZHOU | The Wharf Supertower | 508m~, 110 floors. Approved. Architect: Wilkinson Eyre. Developer: The Wharf Holdings. This landmark project will be located at the core of Suzhou East Lake new CBD. Though the official height is at 460m, diagrams make clear that the height of the spire is around 508m. Completion date is scheduled for 2013. Wilkinson Eyre’s project may be just one of the proposals though, as it is not confirmed to be the final design. Project thread.


XIAMEN | Dynasty 123 | 500m+, 123 floors. Concept proposal. Developer: Dynasty Properties. Located in Xinglin area. There’s almost no info available about this concept proposal scheduled to be completed within 2015. Very low chances anyway.


GUANGZHOU | Baietan District Supertall | 500m+, 118 floors. Concept proposal. The Guangzhou Urban Planning Bureau is planning to develop the second major CBD in town in this area once the Zhujiang Xincheng CBD is completed. According to some preliminary proposals, the new area will host a huge tower around 118 floors.


WUHAN | Wuhan International Business Center | 500m, 100 floors. Concept proposal. This is the tallest proposal located at the new Wangjiadun CBD, called to be Wuhan’s largest business area. The area will host around 14 big skyscrapers according to concept plans, several of them will be likely to reach the supertall status. This skyscraper core is scheduled to be developed along the next decade and is set to be completed within 2020.


CHONGQING | Jiangbei CBD Supertalls | 500m, 380m, 360m. Concept proposal. The second core of Chongqing CBD will be located in Jiangbei. In late 2007, the government raised the maximum heights for its 3 key plots from 300m, 350m and 240m, located respectively at plots A13, A07 and A11. The three plots remain vacant as no developer has showed interest in them by the moment.


TIANJIN | Yujiabao Financial Area Supertall | 500m. Approved – Under design. Architect: SOM. This tower will be located at the core center of Yujiabao new area, the main skyscraper cluster of Binhai, the Tianjin’s district called to become a new Pudong or Shenzhen for the coming two decades, focusing a period of ultrafast development in the whole region of Bohai Rim. Preliminary models of Yujiabao show a number of supertalls in addition to SOM’s project, but the overall planning remains unclear. Soon after the master plan by Henning Larsen Architects got elected in mid-2008, the local government announced that SOM was designing the main landmark tower for the new district, whose preliminary height would be at 500m. According to some rumors, the tower will seek to become China’s tallest skyscraper. Project thread.


SHENZHEN | Shenzhen International Trade Center | 500m~. Approved – Under design. Developer: Greater China Group. This proposal has been redesigned for several times. In early 2009 it was announced that the final design would reach 600m. Other sources claimed that it would be just around 430m. The former design had 500. Project thread.


GUANGZHOU | East Tower | 488m, 120 floors. Approved – Under design. Architect: P&T Architects and HSA. Developer: New World Land. Soon after the new developer purchased the project in December 2008, a new design was announced breaking the symmetry of the former twin project. Though there are some available renders, the project remains under design phase, and no outcome is expected to be launched before May 2009. Works are scheduled to be started in September 2010. Project thread.


HONG KONG | International Commerce Center | 484m, 118 floors. Under construction – Topped out. Architect: KPF. Developer: Shun Hung Kai. The ICC is the highest tower within the large multi tower cluster known as Union Square, located at West Kowloon. Completion is expected for 2010, becoming Hong Kong’s tallest tower. Project thread.


CHONGQING | ASE Center | 463m, 88 floors; 320m~, 61 floors. Under construction - Foundation works. Architect: Dennis Lau & Ng Chun Man Architects. Developer: ASE Group. After confirming a total height of 463m, this project is confirmed to be the winner of the several-year height race between Chongqing supertall proposals. The developer, from Taiwan, is the world’s largest semiconductor company, and has managed to defeat all the real estate titans that competed for the title in the last years. Revision after revision, the project has been raised from just 300m to 463m, and the number of towers has varied along the time. Finally, the height for the secondary highrises has been reduced in favor of the two main skyscrapers. The final project has five towers to be constructed in two phases. The first phase is composed by the towers R1, R2 and R3, all residential. They have 193m, 55 floors; 202m, 58 floors and 235m, 69 floors respectively. The two main towers have 463m, 88 floors and around 330m, 61 floors respectively. The figures for the two big ones may be incorrect as it is unclear whether the crystal structure on the roof is included. ASE may be hiding the total height either as a strategy to guarantee the first position in the height race. Project thread.


CHONGQING | Jialing Fanying | 455m, 105 floors. Under construction – Ground works. Architect: KPF. Developer: Shui On Land. This is the main skyscraper of the Chongqing Tiandi masterplan, located at Hualongqiao district. The main project is composed by three towers erecting on a huge podium. The other two towers have 260m and 198m. The final version was unveiled in January 2008 after dismissing the former layout by SOM, whose height stood at 398m, preventing it from becoming Chongqing’s tallest building. However, the Jialing Fanying failed to become Chongqing’s tallest supertall again as the ASE Center was confirmed to be even taller in mid-2008. On the other hand, the Chairman of Shui On Group announced in October that year that the project would be eventually revised upwards once again to 460m+ in order to regain the title. The construction start has been delayed for several years due to the height race taking place between the main projects in town, but the completion date remains at 2014. Further revisions seem unlikely anyway. Project thread.


NANJING | Nanjing Tower | 450m, 118 floors. Proposed. Developer: Suning Real Estate. This proposal is called to become the main landmark project of Nanjing’s new Hexi CBD. There is very little information available by the moment. Project thread.


NANJING | Nanjing Greenland Financial Center | 450m, 66 floors. Under construction – Topped out. Architect: SOM. Developer: Greenland Group. Set to be completed in 2009, this supertall will become China’s third tallest skyscraper for a brief period. This building tries to inspire some aspects of the Chinese traditional culture as both the shape and the panes on the exterior wall try to resemble a dragon. Project thread.


CHONGQING | Sun Valley Tianhe Tower | 450m~, 95~ floors. Approved – Clearing works. Developer: Yingli Properties. Tough it was released in 2008, very few details have been unveiled about this large multi-tower development as not even the architect , the height or the final proposal have been announced. Considering the proportions of the known proposals, Sun Valley may be even taller than the ASE Center, becoming Chongqing’s tallest project. The masterplan has another 4 big towers, being 3 of them clearly above 200m. The second tallest tower is known to have 288m. Ground clearing works are taking place at a very decent speed, but the official ground breaking ceremony date remains unreleased in early 2009. Project thread.


SHENZHEN | Kingkey Finance Center Plaza | 439m, 97 floors. Under construction - Rising. Architect: Terry Farrell. Started in early 2008, this tower is scheduled to be completed within 2010. However, due to the long time taken to finish the foundation works, it is likely to be delayed up to 2011. Located in Luohu district, this sharp supertall will become Shenzhen’s tallest skyscraper when finished. It started rising in early 2009. Project thread.


GUANGZHOU | West Tower | 438m, 104 floors. Under construction – Topped out. Architect: Wilkinson Eyre. Guangzhou twin towers are called to be the main landmark of the Zhujiang New City CBD. Formerly an identical twin project till the East Tower plot got purchased by another developer and re-designed, the original twin layout is the result of a contest with several proposals ranging from 350 to 600m. Ground breaking ceremony took place in December 2005 and the supertall is scheduled to be completed within the end of 2009. Project thread.


CHONGQING | Chongqing International Financial Center | 431m, 102 floors. Under construction – Foundation works. Architect: ECADI. In spite of the countless height revisions, the project formerly known as Marriott Center is the big loser of the height race that has taken place between the main projects in Chongqing for the last years, as it is the only one that will remain below 450m. In the last years, the height was revised from 168m to 276m, 298m, 335m, 339m, 330m, 320m, 357m, 375m, 377m, 398m and finally 431m. Construction work, currently around the 8th floors, has been on hold for several times due to the design changes and needed reconfigurations. Officially under construction once again, it remains unclear whether they will tear the current structure down and restart the whole tower or resuming it from the existing podium. Project thread.


NANJING | Jinling Fuguang | 430m, 81 floors. Approved. Formerly a 508m, 108 floor proposal, this project was considered as a mere vision concept without real chances. However, it was re launched with a more modest height in mid 2007 and it is supposed to be approved. No news for a long time though, therefore it could have been cancelled. Project thread.


CHONGQING | Financial Street Project | 430m, 81 floors. Approved – Clearing works. Architect: KPF. Developer: Financial Street Holdings. Released in early 2008 and located in Jiefangbei area, this monster project is composed by a row of 7 towers, 6 of them above 200m. The second tallest may reach 300m thanks to the spire, but it isn’t very likely. Project thread.

FOSHAN | Lingan Tiandi | 430m. Approved – Under design. Architect: SOM. Developer: Shui On. This project will be developed in several phases starting in 2010 and it is scheduled to be completed within 2020. The main tower is under design and not much information has been unveiled about it besides the preliminary height.


SHENYANG | Shenyang International Finance Center | 428m, 89 floors. Approved – Ground works. Architect: I. M. Pei & Partners. Developer: Henderson Land. Though the ground breaking ceremony took place in May 2008, no activity has taken place since then for unknown reasons. According to recent rumors they might change the design. Completion is scheduled for 2012.Project thread.


SHENYANG | Richgate City | 426m, 96 floors; 350m, 90 floors; 350m, 80 floors. Under construction – Ground works. Architect: Gensler. Developers: Huarui Group and SRE Group. The ground breaking ceremony of this huge project finally took place in December 2008, and ground digging works have been progressing quickly since then. The project has been revised upwards for several times, and though one of the four major towers was dismissed, the other three will be far taller than preliminary expected. The plan also includes 6 residential towers above 150m. Completion date remains unknown. Project thread.


TIANJIN | R&F Tower | 415m | 93 floors. Approved – Construction start announced. Developer: R&F Properties. This highrise will be the tallest landmark tower at the newly developed Xiangluowan CBD in Binhai new area. Both the architect and the final height for this tower remain unveiled in early 2009. We only know that Goettsch & Partners designed one of the proposals, probably the chosen one. Thanks to the spire, the total height should be easily above 450m. Ground breaking ceremony will take place in late 2009 according to recent news.Project thread.


SUZHOU | Suzhou Twin Towers | 2x400m+. Concept proposal. Twin tower project proposed at West Lake CBD. Official plot planning shows that the height will be above 400m.


TIANJIN | West Station CBD Supertall | 400m+. Concept proposal. A huge tower close to the new West Station has been displayed on the city models. No info at all about the actual project by the moment, likely to be a long term plan.


SHENYANG | Shenyang Eton Center | 400m, 88 floors; 300m, 58 floors. Approved. Architect: John Portman. Developer: Eton Properties. Located in Shenhe district, next to Hang Lung Plaza twin towers, this project will be started in mid-2009 according to recent releases. The final layout was decided in late 2008 after dismissing NBBJ’s proposal. The current height probably doesn’t include the spires in the main tower. Project thread.

-
KUNMING | Yuxi Future City | 2x400m~, 88 floors. Approved – Under design. Though the ground breaking ceremony of this project took place in March 2009, the actual works are not expected to be started anytime soon. The available design isn’t likely to be the final design either. Project thread.


SHENZHEN | Feng Long Center | 400m~, 80~ floors. Proposed. Proposed in Futian district, no information about this supertall has been released for more than one year. Likely to become a never built project.


CHONGQING | Ranjiaba Project | 400m~. Proposed – Under design. Developer: Yingli Properties. This supertall was presented in 2008. No further info by the moment.


WUHAN | Wuhan International Finance Center | 400m~. Proposed – Design contest. This tower is the first actual project released at Wuhan’s new Wangjiadun CBD. Six proposals, ranging from 350 to 400m, have been released by three architecture studios: SOM, ECADI and CADREG, offering two versions each. The project was released in January 2009. Project thread.

Foundation works of this project started in late 2008 and both towers will start rising in late 2009 according to a recent release.

SHENYANG | Hang Lung Plaza Twin Towers | 384m, 75 floors; 350m, 67 floors. Under construction – Foundation works. Architect: KPF. Developer: Hang Lung Properties. Foundation works started in mid-2008 and the first crane was finally erected in March 2009. The project will be completed in November 2011.

SHENYANG | Oriental International Plaza | 2x380m. Proposed – Under design): 2x380m. Proposal for Heping district, still no images. It may become a never built project as no new information has been released for more than one year.


SHANGHAI | Xujiahui Center | 380m. Proposed – Under design. Very old project re-launched for several times. Formerly a 459m proposal by John Portman, it became on hold in late 1990’s. Around 2006,new versions by SOM and Foster were launched, no approval was confirmed though. The local government announced in October 2008 that the new height will be 380m, but the new design remains unveiled. Project thread.


TIANJIN | Yan Zhao Building | 378m, 100 floors. Proposed – Under design. Old proposal for Binhai New Area recently re launched. Design expected to be changed. Likely to become a never built project though. Project thread.


SHENYANG | Sun Rise IBT | 377m, 77 floors. Proposed. Developer: Sun Rise Group. This supertall would become the fourth stage of a multi-phase development project. The main tower has few chances as in 2008 the developer announced that a way shorter, twin tower project would be more suitable. Very likely to be cancelled.


TIANJIN | Dahutong International Business Center | 368m, 80~ floors. Approved. Developer: Century Huafeng. Released in April 2008, not much information has been published about this tower approved in Honqgiao District. The available images are likely to be just a preliminary layout, not the actual design.
