Unbelievable. China makes building supertalls look easy.

88 floor one coming in Nanning's ASEAN Economic Development Zone. Plot GC2007-36. Called 九州天龙国际大厦, something like Jiuzhou Tianlong International Tower. Still no sources (probably only a rumor), therefore I'm not including it in the lists for now.

China40 - The Rising Urban Stars



Shanghai, 11 Mar 2009 – Forty Tier II and III cities in China will be on the radar of property occupiers, investors and developers over the next decade, according to Jones Lang LaSalle’s latest research report, "China40 – The Rising Urban Stars". The report also identified which of the 40 cities will have the potential to emerge as real estate winners in the office, logistics and retail sectors.

“By 2020, we estimate that Tier I cities would account for only 10% of China’s commercial real estate activity, which serves to highlight the massive opportunities in Tier II and Tier III cities over the coming decade,” says Mr Fung Kin Keung, Managing Director, Jones Lang LaSalle Greater China. “Produced in response to the strong continued interest in China’s Tier II and Tier III cities and as a follow up to our 2007 China30 research, our latest report aims to provide strategic context for real estate players who are prepared to look beyond China’s Tier I cities.”
The 40 cities (termed as “China40”) were identified through an evaluation process which started with 275 cities across China. “We analyzed the 275 cities based on a range of demographic, economic, business, infrastructure, technological and labour market factors,” notes Mr Fung. The top 100 highest-scoring cities were then positioned on Jones Lang LaSalle’s City Evolution Curve through an analysis combining economic and real estate indicators. The 50 highest-ranking cities were then analysed in detail, incorporating the views of our team of market practitioners, resulting in 40 short-listed rising urban stars – the China40.

A framework was developed to assess how each of the China 40 cities will evolve as interesting locations for the real estate community. We consolidated our intelligence, information and views to create a city evolution curve and clustered the China 40 cities into three stages – growth, early adopters and dormant. The report highlights the opportunities in the different stages

“China’s Tier II and Tier III cities continue to grow and experience dynamic development. With massive infrastructure investments, these markets are increasingly accessible at a time when the focus is on domestic consumption rather than export-oriented,” states Michael Klibaner, Head of Research for Jones Lang LaSalle, Shanghai.

Key factors driving and shaping China’s cities and real estate markets are government policies combined with the up-skilling of China’s labour force and continued infrastructure investment. The report provides an in-depth assessment on how these three factors will stimulate future growth.

In addition, the report assessed how China’s structural changes would impact specific commercial real estate areas, and identified the likely real estate winners for the main property sectors.

Office: Tianjin and Chongqing have visions to become the economic centres of northern and western China respectively, and Nanjing is gaining status as a rising location for regional headquarters.
Logistics: Chengdu, Qingdao and Zhengzhou all possess significant logistics potential with their strategic locations, access to large population bases and growing roles as railway hubs or ports.

Retail: Changsha, Wuhan and Wenzhou possess relatively undeveloped retail markets, but are well positioned to undergo a period of substantial growth.

“Whilst the economic slowdown is clearly affecting the short-term prospects of China’s Tier II and III cities, we are confident the China 40 will offer significant opportunities with long-term fundamentals remain strong,“ says Mr Fung, “Unlike Tier I cities, these 40 cities are somewhat sheltered from the global economic storm, and will have a greater focus on the domestic market.” The report also addresses the impact of the recent Economic Stimulus Package and the Rural Land Reform on the China 40 and assesses the prospects for real estate investment in these cities.

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.
The tallest tower has been revised upwards today to 468m, becoming CQ's tallest project again. Chongqing supertall height race marks another chapter.

http://news.sohu.com/20090515/n263970167.shtml

Ranking today and latest revisions:
Jialing Fanying: 468m, revised today from 455m.
ASE Center: 463m, revised last month from 460m. It was 428m till October 2008.
Sun Valley: 450m~, height unrelesaed.
Chongqing IFC: 431m. Upwards revision to 500m+ on the way according to unsourced rumors.
Financial Street main tower: 430m.

Only the height for the Financial Street is likely to be final. This is becoming a never ending story...

This race for the tallest building is simply ridiculous!
It's like 6 years old kids fighting to know who's made the talled sand castle. Local government should intervene.

I think they are trying to build tall but high quality towers. Its good to see how the country is devloping. If they were simply building the tallest, then they could have done what Dubai did and put the race to an end.

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.
Pics by York. Actual height still unreleased.

CHONGQING | Global Financial Building | 331m, 81 floors. Approved – Design contest. Developer: IFC. This tower is one of the numerous supertalls on going in the ultra-dense Jiefangbei district in the city of Chongqing. In early 2009 construction start was announced for the second half of the year. The final design remains unclear, as many versions have been launched successively. The name of the project at this plot has changed for many times too. From Lifan Edifice to Fortune Center, Chongqing World Financial Center and finally Global Financial Building. Project thread.
Construction schedule released.
Start: September 2009
Completion: December 2011

Final design still unclear.

@ big-dog

Shanghai has already graduated from that list. Shanghai isn't a "rising star" anymore. It is, in fact, already an established "star."

Well, still no official source, but these concept renders clearly imply that the third phase of Hang Lung project for Wuxi will include a 300-400m tower. The render is obviously conceptual, not the actual design, so please avoid childish posts about "hey, that looks like West Tower", because it is really annoying reading those pointless comments all the time. In the first render, the one at the bottom left is the Suning Tower, 318m.





Phase 1. 245 and 215m, by AEDAS.
