I don't know if this project is totally new or a revision of another one we already knew.

If confirmed, it would become the 7th supertall project for Wuhan.
This tower will have 438m, and will be built next to the Wuhan Center (428m), in the new Wangjiadun CBD. Will be developed by Evergrande Real Estate Group (Guangzhou), formerly called Zhengda Real Estate. Wangjiadun CBD has 6 plots served for supertalls, all of them 400m+ according to the preliminary models.

http://news.wuhan.soufun.com/2009-08-23/2745363.htm

I'll open a thread as soon as they release some renders.

Concept models of Wangjiadun CBD. I don't know in what plot will be Evergrande's tower.





Wuhan Center, 428m, the only actual design in the model

KPF added its Meixi Lake masterplan project to its website. The tallest tower will have 400m according to press releases. In the last weeks KPF has added a lot of projects to its website, hope they keep updating so that we can see high resolution renders of their supertall projects in Tianjin and Shenzhen.

http://www.kpf.com/


MEIXI LAKE
CHANGSHA, PRC

CLIENT : GALE INTERNATIONAL


Meixi Lake is a New City in the West Changsha Pioneer Zone in the Hunan Province of the People’s Republic of China. Meixi Lake will be home to 180,000 inhabitants and will provide sustainable neighborhoods for living, working, recreation, culture, entertainment and convention. The CBD wraps around a 3.85 kilometer long lake lined with a public promenade from which canals and gardens connect to the eight residential neighborhoods. This city maintains the highest international standards for sustainable living.

The KPF design for the Meixi Lake master plan seeks to establish a paradigm of man living in balance with nature. A densely concentrated urban plan, packed with a full variety of functions and building types, is integrated with mountains, lakes, parks and canals, resulting in an environment which promotes both health and prosperity. As a new center within the larger metropolitan area of Changsha, Meixi proposes to offer a new model for the future of the Chinese city. Advanced environmental engineering, pedestrian planning, cluster zoning, and garden integration, are all made part of a holistic strategy of design in this healthy city.

The first element of the Meixi plan is water. Water is retained to form a 40 hectare lake, which constitutes the "central park" of the city. This lake provides for boat transport linkages, creates conditions for edge gardens, and makes places for cultural venues. Around the circular heart of this water body is wrapped the mixed use CBD. Here, high rise building districts are connected by a pedestrian tram street, reducing the need for car use in the city center.

Radiating from the water's edge is a series of canals, allowing for boat transport from the city center to any one of eight neighborhood clusters. Each cluster houses about 10,000 people, and includes a village center featuring a school, shopping area, and other public functions. These neighborhoods are separated from one another by green buffers which accommodate exercise fields and natural landscape zones. The architecture of each "village" will be different, but material and formal coherence will be encouraged within each zone so as to create a sense of place.

SPECS
FACILITY
Mixed-Use Masterplan and Urban Design: Office, Residential, Retail, Academic, Cultural and Park

SIZE
Total area - 1,675 Acre

STATUS
Under Construction
Year of Completion: 2020

That Changsha concept project is way too fabulous. I wonder if this one is already approved? I am already used to Chinese projects being approved right away so forgive for asking that question.

Models of Suzhou's two CBDs.

West Lake. 2x400m twins and 4x300m in addition to the Gate of the East Tower (300m).
Plot map: http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...hers/cbd02.jpg
For some reason they removed 2 of the 300m towers in the models.

East Lake. 1x420m and 3x300m. The 420m is the project developed by The Wharf, whose actual height will be taller than 500m according to some proposals. One of the 300m will be developed by Shun Hung Kai.

cool, thanks zorg, just wondering, when looking from the front, will the gate cover the twin towers? Also, if it goes to plan, i hope the twins will remain twins and not change the designs half way

They aren't supposed to be identical twins but two different projects with a similar height.

It does a little bit yeah. If you look at the map of china and turn it 90 degrees. But I still think it's just a coincidence.

100+ floor tower coming in Nanchang. Just a concept proposal by the moment.

  在钨都广场规划建设高度为100层以上的赣州之星等现代简约欧式风格建筑群。在三条城市主干道交汇处,周边用三组高层建筑来界定这一城市空间,在裙楼用环型天桥将其串联为整体。东侧已规划有商会大厦,南侧地块规划一组节节向上的高层建筑。西侧地块布置赣州最高的地标建筑赣州之星,设计为地标性的生态型写字楼,人们从城市不同角度都能仰望到它,成为整体城市空间的控制点,具有标志感和导引性。

And ANOTHER one for Wuhan. This one has been revised upwards from 59 to 74 floors. I'll open a thread as soon as we get new images and a clear confirmation.
Developer: Shanghai Penxin Group. It's called 水游城, something like Water City.

Concept proposals for the south extension of Guangzhou CBD. Pics by fosk.

There are 3 proposals.
Basically, the 1st proposal includes a tower around 60 floors, 250m+; the 2nd proposal includes a tower around 80 floors, 350m+; and the third proposal includes two twin towers around 280m. Of course all of this is extremely conceptual.


Proposal 1
























Proposal 2

























Proposal 3

WUXI | PTW Architects Masterplan | 350m+, 86 floors. Concept proposal. Architect: PTW.There isn’t any information available about this project, only some renders from PTW Studio confirming a masterplan in Wuxi with an 86 floor tower.
This project has been started already. The main tower will have 280m, unknown number of floors. I don't think the height is final, but anyway seems like the project has been revised downards below 300m.

I don't know if these news are good or bad. Honestly, I used to think that this one would become a never built proposal.

Developer: SPG Group (Shanghai)
Masterplan architect: PTW
Main tower architect: SOM
280m, number of floors unknown.

SHANGHAI | Xujiahui Center | 380m. Proposed – Under design. Very old project re-launched for several times. Formerly a 459m proposal by John Portman, it became on hold in late 1990’s. Around 2006,new versions by SOM and Foster were launched, no approval was confirmed though. The local government announced in October 2008 that the new height will be 380m, but the new design remains unveiled. Project thread.
Render posted by moyan808. No info. It has around 80 floors, plus the roof structure. It could reach 400m imo. The spire must reach 400m for sure.

Concept renders for Dandong business district. Dandong is a 0.7 million city on the border between China and North Korea and it is scheluded to become a major export production center. The new area includes a tower that seems taller than 300m, I'll include it as a concept proposal.

That looks fantastic. 0.7 million people isn't much. How many people will live in Dandong after this is complete? Looks like the city will double in size.

Going back to the Suzhou plan, on the 'round' render, in which direction is old Suzhou? I'm assuming they have no plans to stick highrise inside the old city...
Cheers.
