The first proposal (370m) for Shenzhen World Finance Center is the best. If that 125 floors tower was with a different shape, probably that one, as Shenzhen deserves a tower around 500m!

SUZHOU | The Wharf Supertower (Approved): 420m, 100 floors. This landmark project developed by The Wharf Holdings will be located at the core of Suzhou Jinji Lake new CBD. The tower is being designed by KPF.



Final height announced to be around 500m.

成立那天起,我们就在追求品牌化,每个产品都非常具有特点,不做普通、大众的项目。圆融时代广场也是一样,早在2006年底,在中国购物中心国际论坛第四届年会上,经中国购物中心专业认证委员会评审,圆融时代广场以其前瞻性的规划与不凡的品质,在众多项目中独占鳌头,一举获得“2006年度中国最佳商业地产创新大奖”。项目总建筑面积约51万平方米,集合了办公商务区、时尚购物街区、生活休闲区、滨河餐饮娱乐区以及苏州首座10万平方米的购物中心,拥有6 个地铁出口、4000余个地下泊车位,还创造了500米LED巨型天幕的世界之最;另外还有水上巴士、空中连廊、超大广场、九大主题景观、时尚夜景……这些都是为了配合打造一流、品牌的商业地产项目。圆融时代广场的目标,是成为苏州市域CBD最繁华的商业中心、都市商业综合体,目前主力招商已全部完成, SOGO、玩具反斗城、Home Centre、SK集团等多家世界著名品牌纷纷落户。今年9月28日,即将迎来它的开业,我们有这个信心。

虽然就目前来看,相比苏州其他商业较成熟的地区,园区的人气不足。我们看中的是这里未来的发展潜力,况且,一个优秀的开发商就应有把“生地”做成“熟地” 的本事。虽说是“生地”,但是国际级品牌纷纷被项目吸引也是有道理的。苏州目前的GDP水平已达到全国一流水平,城市目前的商业发展情况是缺少这样一个大体量高品质的项目,而并非多出一个同类型项目。另外,就园区来说,园区是经济水平名列苏州第一的地区,园区内住宅区的层次较别的地区要高,中海、万科、仁恒、雅戈尔、栖霞等高端社区云集,但是缺少匹配的商业项目,没有高档住宅项目和高品质商业项目之间的互动。放眼圆融时代广场四周,未来这里还将会矗立起以香港九龙仓集团开发的500米超高层摩天大厦为代表的CBD金融商务区摩天楼群,加之已有国际博览中心和科技文化艺术中心以及如新罗、凯悦、洲际等五星级酒店如众星捧月,可以想见,以圆融时代广场为核心的湖东CBD商圈正在形成。所以,后期的潜力是无限的。先人一步看到商机,而不是等别人都看到了才去发开,这点对于一个商业地产开发商来说也很重要。”

CHONGQING | Chongqing Moi City (Proposed): 300m+, 79 floors. Moi developer's first project in town, it was early announced as an average 200m+ project, but last the design confirms another huge skyscraper which might be even above 350m due to the spire. Projected in Jiangbei district. Thread



Only 69 floors for the final plan, 300m+ might depend on spire.

据了解,重庆项目位于沙坪坝三角碑,总投资25亿元,共有5幢大楼,包括一个五星级酒店、高档写字楼和近18万平方米的商业面积,其中一栋楼高69层,将建成沙坪坝第一高楼和标志性建筑。

CHONGQING | Century Star Plaza (Under construction): 2x330m+, 86 floors. Chongqing's largest project by far, developed by ASE and located also in Jiefangbei. This crazy development composed by two main towers (office and hotel) and four residentials has changed many times and the last design hasn't been chosen by the moment. The first version was composed by one tower around 80 floors and two around 40, called City Crown of Chongqing. Then, the project was relaunched as 6 towers, 79, 75, 68, 62, 58 and 55 floors respectively, being the tallest 300m high. In early 2007, the two main towers were announced to become 86 floor twins. Finally, in mid 2007, some renders were launched about the final proposals, which showed crazy designs, some of them as tall as 90 floors. The outcome is still an enigma. The huge podium hosting a shopping center is under construction. Thread


The final version of this project will be above 400m, I can't provide a source sorry. Hope we can get official releases about this project soon.

CHONGQING | Jialing Fanying (Under construction): 398m, 98 floors. Designed by SOM, this is Chongqing's tallest skyscraper approved by the moment. The tower is the main piece of Chongqing Tiandi masterplan, located at Hualongqiao district. The developer Shui On Land announced in September 2007 that the tower would be above 100 floors, so the design might be changed. The main tower is supposed to have been started after clearing the construction area. Thread



We can guess the new height with this stuff.













Retail floors: 6m x 5 = 30m
Office floors: 4.5m x 63 = 283.5m (I included skygardens, which look to have the same height)
Hotel floors: 3.4m x 30 = 102m
Hotel public spaces: 6m~ x 2 = 12m
Crown: 30m~

Total: 100 floors and 457.5m
The final height will be 458m I guess.

For the second tower, I counted 52 floors and around 258m as long as the crown is about 25m high.

No official figures by the moment.

They've posted this at ss.cn, but I couldn't find any official source. Suzhou Gate of the Orient is supposed to have been increased to 300m, 80 floors now. Could anybody confirm this?

CHONGQING | Global Financial Building (Proposed): 331m+, 74 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



This is said to be the final version, 330m, 79 floors. However, it might be changed again.

SHENYANG | Shenyang Eton Center (Proposed): 2x320m+, 70+ floors. This new project will be developed by Eton Holdings and built next to Hang Lung twins in Shenhe district. The architect is NBBJ. Tiny images posted at the developer’s website show one or two supertalls depending on the proposal.





I found this poster showing the main projects developed by Eton Group. At last we can see some larger images of the coming Shenyang Eton Center. I counted around 70 and 78 floors, including the structure over the roof both towers should be above 300m. The architect is NBBJ as far as I know.

It's the fourth project starting from the left, btw.

This project is a huge disappointment, the first renders as the one you posted showed something really amazing, now we are expecting 6/10 architecture far below 300m. On the other hand, it is still a great project for a city like Shaoxing.
This reminds me of the Key Tower in Cleveland except its glassy

This crazy development composed by two main towers (office and hotel) and four residentials has changed many times and the last design hasn't been chosen by the moment. The first version was composed by one tower around 80 floors and two around 40, called City Crown of Chongqing. Then, the project was relaunched as 6 towers, 79, 75, 68, 62, 58 and 55 floors respectively, being the tallest 300m high. In early 2007, the two main towers were announced to become 86 floor twins. Finally, in mid 2007, some renders were launched about the final proposals, which showed crazy designs, some of them as tall as 90 floors. The outcome is still an enigma. The huge podium hosting a shopping center is under construction. Thread


The first plan was composed by 3 towers only.

Old plan 1:

R1: 40 floors, 200m~
R2: 40 floors, 200m~
R3: 80 floors, 300m+



Then it was changed to another different concept, based on a large shopping center with 5 residential towers and 1 supertall for office use.

Old plan 2:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 200m+
R4: 68 floors, 200m+
R5: 75 floors, 200m+
R6: 79 floors, 300m+



The plan was changed again later, and it was announced that there would be 2 main towers, 86 floors each one and above 300m.

Old plan 3:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 200m+
R4: 68 floors, 200m+
R5: 86 floors, 330m+
R6: 86 floors, 330m+



Some news at last about the final project.

- The tallest tower will be 428m, it is confirmed.

- Since they have announced for several times that the two tallest towers would be twins, the second tallest might be 428m too.

- Unofficial rumour claims that the second tower will be above 350m. This was said at the official meeting where they released the new version of Jialing Fanying project. Same source claimed that the tallest one would be 428m, and we could confirm this later.

- No news about the other towers, so I'm keeping posting the old figures for them.

Final plan, hypothesis 1:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 220m+
R4: 68 floors, 250m+
R5: 350-400m
R6: 428m



However, rumour claims that the second supertall tower doesn't mean a revision on R6 tower, but an addition of a seventh tower. This is not confirmed, but latest renders locate the second tallest towers on an area where none of the 5 residentials were planned.

Final plan, hypothesis 2:

R1: 55 floors, 200m+
R2: 58 floors, 200m+
R3: 61 floors, 220m+
R4: 68 floors, 250m+
R5: 75 floors, 300m~
R6: 350-400m
R7: 428m



Additional rumour claims the 8 floor podium was never included in the floor count of the towers (typical in China when making early designs). This source claims that the shortest tower would be 55+8 floors and the tallest one 88+8 floors.

Final plan, hypothesis 3:

R1: 63 floors, 220m+
R2: 66 floors, 220m+
R3: 69 floors, 250m+
R4: 76 floors, 300m~
R5: 83 floors, 300m+
R6: 350-400m
R7: 96 floors, 428m


Source about the final height of the tallest tower being 428m:
http://www.cisdi.com.cn/tech.asp?id=13

Source about the 8 floor podium not being included in the original floor count for the towers built on it:
http://www.hrm.cn/company/ResumeShow...022282838.html


I hope we can get all the info soon, this project is going beyond madness.


Found at Dennis Lau & Ng Chun Man web. Doesn't look 428m though.

There was a supertall planned for Chongqing back in the mid-90s but it was scrapped
