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.
Models posted by 我热爱天津. The final height is very likely to be 597m. Upwards revision to 650m unconfirmed.

TIANJIN | South Station Cluster | 300m~. Proposed – Under design. Architect: KPF. Developer: Kowloon Development. The final layout for this cluster is extremely unclear. According to preliminary plans, it would host four towers around 70 floors, 300m each. In early 2008, the design got upgraded to a 420m twin project. However, in 2009 the latest models show a single supertall around 300m. The whole masterplan is still under design anyway.
Another version, from CITIC's website. The main tower has around 80 floors.

12 preliminary proposals for the PYI International Center in Chongqing. Notice that the 3 residential towers on the left are 207m each. Sad to say that some proposals look shorter than 300m.

No heights provided, but I added my personal estimation.

Proposal 1. 2x250m~


Proposal 2. 350~, 280~, 200~


Proposal 3. 350-400


Proposal 4. 2x200+


Proposal 5. 300+, 250+, 200+.


Proposal 6. 400+.


Proposal 7. 2x300-340


Proposal 8. 300+, 2x200+.


Proposal 9. 280~


Proposal 10. 2x300+


Proposal 11. 250+, 200+


Proposal 12. 350+, 300+, 200+, 180+.



They want this project to be a global landmark to put Chongqing on the map of the world class cities. Imo only a couple of proposals look eye-catching enogugh to become a world class skyscraper project. Nowadays, if you want a global skyscraper landmark you need either something incredibly tall (at least 500+), incredibly expensive and over-designed (and therefore ugly for most people) or very unique twin tower project to get that.

Some of these proposals (3rd, 9th, 10th) look rather irrelevant, they wouldn't even become Chongqing's city main skyscraper landmark in comparison with those 400+ projects approved in other areas of the city.

Only the 12th proposal is good imo, but I would be happy if they chose the 6th, 2nd or maybe the 10th, 7th or 3rd ones.

I wish they built a 888m, 188 floor tower. That would be a world class project for sure. A 500m twin project would be nice too

Another supertall coming for Wuhan. 371m. This project has been revised upwards from 200m. It's called something like Wuhan Zhengan Industrial Building. What is Zhengan/正安?

NANJING | Xinjekou Plaza | 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.
Another render


The information about this project is still very confusing (at least to me ). I've read people claiming that this tower will be 380, 400, 450 and 458m...


Then Suning is planning a project called Hunan Lu Suning Plaza, whose maximum height is 350m. I don't know Nanjing city, maybe this project is the same as Xinjiekou Plaza, just the latest version. Anyway, seems clear that Hunan Lu Suning Plaza is composed by 2x300m+. 澈明星辰 posted these pics today as the local NJTV announced it on the news yesterday.

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.
Finally KPF added this one to its portfolio at its website.

Final heights:

468m, 105 floors.
255m, 52 floors.
174m, 47 floors.













CHONGQING SUPER TOWER
CHONGQING, PRC

CLIENT : SHUI ON LAND

As a centerpiece of the Tian Di Master Plan, the Chongqing Super High-rise Tower project will provide a synergy of uses, including office, residential, retail and entertainment to bring energy, activity and value to the site. Inspired by the sailing ships that once plied the waters of the surrounding Yangtze and Jialing Rivers, the ChongQing Super High-rise Tower’s lightness and graceful form is expressed both in the simple form of the tower and adjacent low-rise towers and retail podium, and further through the towers’ façades.

A central public plaza at the center of the project site, situated between the main tower, retail podium and low-rise residential and office towers, acts as a place of assembly and meeting. Transformable structure gives the ability to provide shelter for events, and elevated platform edges provide a panoramic view of the Jialing River. The ceremonial drop-off and formal entry landscape at the south end of the site are integrated with the central plaza through continued use of paving to soften the edges of the project landscape and allow for emergency vehicle access.

The two smaller towers—a low service apartment block to the east and a mid-rise single use office tower to the west—have been placed on the site so as to minimize cross viewing between each other, and have been scaled to relate to the height of the buildings proposed for the adjacent sites. All three towers employ a similar, but not identical, architectural vocabulary to visually reinforce one another and provide identity to this first phase of development.

The planning and massing of the 4-story retail podium has been conceived to take advantage of the two distinct frontalities on site, again taking influence from the sail form--developed to look almost like a piece of sail cloth blowing in the breeze. The south face of the podium is developed as a continuous street wall, meant to pair with the future development across the street and to provide continuity to the scale of urban fabric. More critically, the podium has been developed with sky-lit atrium/arcades that pass from this south façade through the retail elements to an external, elevated promenade facing the river. This public amenity, raised above the roadway that runs along the river's edge, will give spectacular views and provide space for a dynamic mix of entertainment, retail, restaurants and cafes.

The curtainwall design aims to instill a sense of movement and lightness, consisting of glass that envelops the curving form of the towers and sloping inwards as they rise adding to the organic feel of the structures. This form also helps to minimize light contamination, as the light hitting the exterior surfaces will be dispersed rather than concentrated. Constructed of repeating 9-meter modules with repetitive patterns of vertically-linked double-story units, the framing emphasizes the double-curved form of the tower and suggests the tension of sails in the wind. The glazing will be of high performance IGUs, with a mildly reflective coating (roughly 20% reflectivity) on the second surface of a lightly tinted glass.

More renders of Changsha new CBD. Developed by Gale International. Architect: KPF. The main tower has 400m. The designs are still very conceptual I guess.

a site like that deserves something quite sculptural, like the tip of Manhattan made sharper.

Every country is affected by the global recession.

Chinese government is very rich, they are investing lots of money internally.

While China has been developing due to exports, China now is focusing on internal development which is fueling growth.

New one for Chongqing. They don't know what it is.


Also they are changing the design for the Yingli Tower now that it has started foundation works. Huge pity, I love the former version.
