Finally some image of Wuhan's tallest proposal. Preliminary design of 晋申国际商务中心, something like Jinshen Business Center, 90 floors. No height by the moment. Hopefully the actual design will be totally different.

Jinan city (pop: 2.5 million) will join the supertall club. Greenland Group announces a 300m+ tower for Shandong's capital. Three cities of Shandong have announced supertalls now: Yantai, Qingdao and Jinan. No pics.

Another possible supertall project in Wuhan? 武汉国际博览中心/Wuhan International Expo Center. They look close to 300m to me, around 70 floors. We'll see...

What can I say. Many of them look incredibly tacky and overdesigned by those typical architects with an unlimited ego who love to destroy some city skyline with a project that sticks out a mile.

Many others on the other hand are simply perfect. Stunning, freaking beautiful. Same problem as always though: Not tall enough. None of them looks taller than 400m. A couple of them may be 400m~, that's all. But anyway, just look at those models around the end of the gallery, they are so beautiful.

What about the heights? Some proposals are just a few towers around 180-200m. There is a couple of proposals that don't have any highrise Others on the other hand seem to have 3 or even 4x300m~. Many have 4x200-350m. We'll see.

These are my 4 favourites.

1. Absolutely perfect.


2. Very iconic and futuristic.


3. Beautiful, very beautiful


4. Not too special, but 4x280-330m~ seems very OK to me

120 floor project coming in West Shanghai: Shanghai World Trade Center.
From Renmin Ribao:

上海国际贸易中心建设破题 建设呼之欲出2009年8月4日 06:46
来源:人民日报 作者:谢卫群 选稿:方翔

  东方网8月4日消息:8月3日,上海市商务委与上海长宁区签署推进商务工作全面发展合作框架协议,确定虹桥地区为国际贸易中心主体功能承载区,并拟采取市、区联手推进机制。这是上海市推进国际贸易中心建设的重要举措,上海国际贸易中心建设正式破题。

  国际贸易中心建设呼之欲出

  把上海建设成为国际经济、贸易、金融、航运四大中心,是党中央、国务院赋予上海的使命。今年3月,国务院出台了有关上海国际金融中心和国际航运中心建设的有关意见,如何建设经济中心和贸易中心摆上了议事日程。

  中共中央政治局委员、上海市委书记***在推进金融中心建设大会上曾这样表达:有人问我,上海不是要建成四个中心吗?为什么国务院只批两个中心呢?我的理解是,上海的“四个中心”中,经济中心的范畴比较大,可以涵盖后面的三个中心,只要后三个中心建设好了,经济中心也就自然成了。而在后三个中心中,金融中心、航运中心建设不仅事关上海,还涉及国家层面,所以,需要国家出台政策。而贸易中心建设完全可以立即操作。

  正是基于这一思路,上海加快了国际贸易中心的建设步伐。上海市政府副秘书长、商委主任沙海林,长宁区委书记卞百平一致认为,虹桥国际贸易中心主要承载区的确立,拉开了国际贸易中心建设的帷幕。

  选择虹桥得天独厚

  从上海的情况看,选择大虹桥地区成为国际贸易中心的主功能区得天独厚。

  长宁区是上海的西大门,而其中的虹桥地区是上海最早的涉外贸易中心。虹桥经济技术开发区是国务院批准设立的第一个以第三产业为主导的国家级开发区,20多年来,虹桥开发区已集聚了全市1/3的驻沪领事馆和1/2的驻沪领事;在这个区域里,已拥有各类外资企业和外国企业代表处3600多家;这里也是上海的跨国采购集聚区,仅世贸商城内的跨国采购平台,就集聚了39家世界各国的跨国企业采购中心,初步形成了现代采购中心。

  同时,这一地区相应的配套设施也很完善。以会展设施为例,拥有国际展览中心、世贸商城等,展览展示面积达4.5万平方米,是改革开放后上海最早的也是目前上海三大会展集聚区之一。

  长宁区区长李耀新介绍,今后将用7年左右的时间,使虹桥主体功能区在功能布局、空间载体、企业集聚和配套服务等方面,能真正承担起上海国际贸易中心建设的重任。初步考虑,将虹桥涉外贸易中心作为虹桥主体功能区的核心区域,将虹桥临空港地区作为虹桥主体功能区的重要支撑,重点发展总部经济、专业会展、航空物流和服务外包等,将虹桥贸易总部地区建成国际知名贸易企业总部集聚的总部型生态园区。

  为提升这个区域的功能,长宁还将重点打造一批功能性项目,其中最亮点是建设高达120层的上海世界贸易中心,届时,它将成为上海西部地区的标志性建筑,成为国际贸易组织、国际性商会组织、国内贸易机构的集聚平台。

The construction of Shanghai International Trade Center building ready-breaking title at 6:46 on August 4, 2009
Source: People's Daily Author: Wei-Qun Xie selection:方翔

Daily News August 4: August 3, the Shanghai Business Shanghai Changning District Committee and the signing of the comprehensive development of the work to promote business co-operation framework agreement to determine the Hongqiao International Trade Center area is the main function of carrying the district and intends to take the city, district jointly push forward the mechanism. This is the Shanghai International Trade Center to promote the building of an important measure, the construction of Shanghai International Trade Center officially started.

International Trade Center building ready

The construction of Shanghai into an international economic, trade, finance, shipping four centers, the CPC Central Committee and the State Council entrusted the mission of Shanghai. In March this year, the State Council promulgated the Shanghai international financial center and the construction of an international shipping center, the views, how to build an economic center and trade center has been put on the agenda.

Member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, secretary of the Shanghai Municipal *** building a financial center in promoting the General Assembly had this expression: Some people asked me not to build four Shanghai center? Why is the State Council has only approved two centers? My understanding is that Shanghai's "four centers", the economic center of the relatively large area to cover the back of the three centers, as long as the building after the three centers, and it naturally became the economic center. In three centers, financial and shipping center in Shanghai not only bears, but also at the national level, therefore, introduced the need for national policy. Trade Center building and can be operated immediately.

Based on this thinking, Shanghai International Trade Center to speed up the pace of the building. Deputy Secretary-General of the Shanghai Municipal Government, appointed director of business沙海林, secretary of Changning District Baiping Bian agreed that the Hongqiao International Trade Center to establish the main bearing area, began construction of the International Trade Center today.

Hongqiao unique choice

From the situation in Shanghai, the choice of Hongqiao area as an international trade center area of the main unique feature.

Shanghai Changning District is the west gate, which is the Hongqiao area of Shanghai Foreign Trade Center first. Hongqiao Economic and Technological Development Zone was approved by the State Council set up the first of a tertiary industry-driven national development zones, 20 years, the Hongqiao Development Zone, the city has gathered 1 / 3 of the Consulate General in Shanghai and 1 / 2 in Consul General in Shanghai; in this region has a wide range of foreign-funded enterprises and more than 3,600 representative offices of foreign enterprises; here is the Shanghai International Merchandising concentration areas, only the cross-Shanghaimart procurement platform, to gather the 39 countries in the world multinational purchasing center, the initial formation of a modern procurement centers.

At the same time, the region corresponding facilities are perfect. To exhibition facilities, for example, have an international exhibition center, such as the World Trade Center, the exhibition display area of 45,000 square meters, is the reform and opening-up the first Shanghai Shanghai is currently one of the three major exhibition gathering.

Li new Changning District, the future will be 7 years or so, so that the main function of Hongqiao District in the functional layout, space vector, corporate concentration and ancillary services, can really take on the construction of Shanghai International Trade Center of the task. Preliminary consideration to Hongqiao Hongqiao Foreign Trade Center, the main function as the core of the region will be temporary Hongqiao Hongqiao Airport as the main functional areas of an important support area, focusing on the development of headquarters economy, professional exhibition, aviation logistics and service outsourcing and so on, will be headquartered Hongqiao area of trade into an international well-known corporate headquarters gather the Trade eco-park headquarters.

In order to enhance the function of this region, Changning will feature a number of key projects to build, the most bright spot is the 120-story building up to the World Trade Center in Shanghai, when Shanghai will become a symbol of the western region of construction, international trade organizations, International Chamber of Commerce organizations, national trade bodies gather platform.
