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.

Many people over these forums, especially at Skyscraperpage, love spreading rumors about unsustainable office vacancy rates in Chinese cities. After some Google research I got these results. I'm not an expert, but considering that second tier cities are booming like crazy from very low levels when talking about A grade office stock, these figures seem fine to me.

Vacancy rate in 2007 for A-Grade offices.
Beijing: 9%
Shanghai: 2%
Shenzhen: 9%
Guangzhou: 16%
Tianjin: 16%
Dalian: 20%
Chengdu: 11%
Chongqing: 27%
Xi'an: 21%
Wuhan: 25%
Hangzhou: 22%
Shenyang: 10%
Qingdao: 8%
http://ris.dtz.com.hk/Property_Marke...tion_List.aspx

Notice that in some cities like Chongqing, the total stock is growing around 15% a year. Therefore, though a vacancy rate of 27% may look high, statistically it just shows a 'lag' of 18~ months. Very short actually. On the other hand it's climbed a lot in the last quarters both in Beijing and Shanghai due to the huge amount of new projects that have been finished. It is close to 20% in both Shanghai and Beijing nowadays. They are finishing very few large projects in the coming quarters in these two cities, so they should come down easily.

You can compare. Vacancy rate in USA is at 15% now.
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...._hWI&refer=us
11% in London.
http://www.propertywire.com/news/eur...901122386.html
5% in central Tokyo.

HEFEI | Hefei Twin Towers | 2x350m+, 88 floors. Approved – Under design. Developer: Golden Resources. In June 2008 an early concept layout for the coming business district of Hefei was announced. The main landmark would be an 88 floor twin tower project. The plan also includes 5 towers around 55 floors each. Later releases claimed that the project would be drastically revised downwards, but no further details were announced. No images by the moment.
They will build 2x65 and 5x55 floors instead. No supertalls then.

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.
Finally we can confirm the heights as KPF listed this project at their website!


CHONGQING FINANCIAL STREET
CHONGQING, PRC

The Chongqing Financial Street is a series of 7 parcels of land, located in the heart of the Chongqing Financial District (CQFS), at the tip of the peninsula where the two major rivers split. Chongqing has become one of China’s major inland cities. The 7 parcels run north to south along Wuyi Road on the west side, and Singhua Road for the most part on the east side. It begins south of Minzu Road, and ends north of Ciqi Street. Two key cultural monuments directly adjacent to the site are the Liberation Monument and the Luohan Temple. The site is easily accessible from various subway stations. The district will also be integrated into the proposed pedestrian street network.

The proposed master plan aims to transform the CQFS into a functional and effective financial district of international importance, with pedestrian-friendly public open spaces. The proposed master plan comprises of mainly high and middle level office buildings, as well as a hotel, service apartments, and retail.

CQFS Master Plan has introduced several sustainable features, including atrium gardens within office towers, green roofs, the use of locally available materials to reduce transportation cost, and a common service tunnel (CST) that would prepare infrastructure in advance to ease future construction.

We can confirm the roof heights finally. Spire heights remain unknown excepting for the tallest tower, which we already knew.

Heights.
380m +spire = 430m
240m +spire (very long)
200m +spire (medium)
180m +spire (very long)
220m
250m
140m
210m
* The two "very long" spires look as long as the spire in the main tower. Therefore, the 240m one is likely to be around 290m.

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. The project is located at Shenhe district, next to Eton Center development. The plan also includes another two towers around 200m. Project thread.
SHENYANG CITY HANG LUNG PLAZA
SHENYANG, CHINA

The design for the Hang Lung Dou Mu Gong Mixed-use Development in Shenyang seeks to create a dynamic new icon for one of northeast China’s most vibrant and swiftly developing cities.

Situated at the south side of City Plaza with ample frontage on Qing Nian Da Jie, the site is undoubtedly one of the most desirable development sites in the city. KPF’s design features two dynamic office tower forms at the north site which act as a gateway from City Plaza to the development and serve to reinforce the edge of the part. Between these two elements is a large canopy which covers a plaza in front of the main retail entrance. The central zone of the retail mall is situated a bit further south, thus allowing easy access from the later phase office tower and the hotel tower.

Finally, the southeastern portion of the site is reserved for three serviced apartment buildings and retail stores specially tailored for the needs of apartment residents.

The architectural language of all buildings is based on a gently curved geometry, which is meant to suggest the flow of the river. The office towers and hotel slab taper subtly in section to open up a sense of space in the middle of the complex. The office towers are conceived as a family of forms and are united though the use of a consistent curtain-wall design. These towers are capped by floating crystal forms that sparkle during the daytime and function as beacons at night.

TIANJIN | Kerry Center | 330m, 71 floors. Under construction – Ground works. Developer: Kerry Properties. The architect of this multi-tower project remains unveiled and so does the construction schedule. Intensive ground works started in early 2009, meaning that further information should be coming soon. Project thread.

I found the website of the facade designers, but I don't know if this is an old/dismissed version or the final one. According to the profile the architect is SOM, and the main tower will have 80 floors, taller than expected:


Tianjin Kerry Center
Tianjin
Cladding Area: 100,000 m2
Architect: SOM, L & O, Mix Studio
Date : 2012

The project is located in TianJin, He Dong District on the East bank of the river. The approximate above ground floor area is 499,000 square meters, comprising; 3 luxury residential towers, a mixed use retail shopping podium, 5 star Shangri-la Hotel, and a 80 story Mega High-rise Office Tower.

Konstruct West Partners was appointed directly by Kerry Properties to provide full scope facade consulting services from technical design thru project completion.

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.
Tons of renders posted by 睦南西道. The masterplan is likely to include 5 supertalls.

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.
Quote:
NANJING | Suning Xin-Huashe Land | 300m. Approved – Design contest. Developer: Suning Real Estate. This supertall project was released in mid-2008. Several proposals have been unveiled, but it is not clear which one got picked as the final design.
A guy interviewed some staff from Suning Group and got this info. Could be true or not, I can't tell.

Suning Xin-Huashe Land is now called Xinjiekou Plaza. Height is supposed to be 458m, plus spire. Final design unclear.

The Nanjing Tower is also expected to be taller than 400m, the twisting tower is the final design, but they are setting some slight changes.

Jinrongjie Group's project in Jiangbei New City CBD will be far taller than expected: 80 floors and 2x30 floors. So we can confirm a new supertall for Chongqing. Called Century Center.
