Huge masterplan in Shanghai by Gensler. There's one supertall there it seems. We'll see...









Does China's leading business city have what it takes to be a top-tier global financial center?

The Master Plan is a transformative and sustainable vision for the redevelopment of the Huangpu district of Puxi in Shanghai. The plan provides a rational framework for the transformation of the district that supports the overall vision of a modern Shanghai as a major global financial center.

The project design drew from studies of world global financial centers, including New York and London, to determine the physical elements that make prime financial centers attractive to businesses and talents. The key components of the Master Plan include the creation of mixed-use districts, with office, service apartment, retail and cultural facilities; the reliance on and full integration of public transportation into the master plan; and a carefully integrated preservation to tie the new infill development with the history of the district.

Because of its unique location and rich history, the Master Plan is more akin to a selective urban intervention strategy than to a major reconstruction of the entire area. The design team worked with local design institutes evaluating significance of all build environment on site. The district history played a key determinant role in shaping the plan, including the location of high rise towers to mark key gateways to the old City and to define the whole district on the Shanghai skyline. Selective preservation will transform unique historic neighbourhoods into mixed-use retail and cultural sub-districts. A major cultural institution on the Bund will transform the image of the district and Shanghai worldwide and become a catalyst for investment in the area.

so they are going to clear the whole land and then rebuild some of the traditional Chinese and European style buildings? I hope they can preserve that kind of history in Shanghai. Hopefully things will turn out fine

TIANJIN | Tianjin TEDA Towers | 358m, 80 floors. Approved. Architect: Atkins.

This tower has been revised upwards to 455m. It will be started in 2010 and completed within 2013.

Looks like they picked Atkins' proposal for the East Tower for the concept modeling, or maybe that's the actual design. We'll see.

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.
Possible new final design. 320m, 69 floors.

660m, 138 floors proposed for Wuhan at the Wangjiadun CBD.
I can't find any official link about this proposal, we shouldn't open a thread till we can confirm it.

SHENYANG | Shenyang Eton Center | 400m, 88 floors; 300m, 58 floors. Approved. Architect: John Portman. Developer: Eton Properties. Located in Shenhe district, next to Hang Lung Plaza twin towers, this project will be started in mid-2009 according to recent releases. The final layout was decided in late 2008 after dismissing NBBJ’s proposal. The current height probably doesn’t include the spires in the main tower. Project thread.
New design? Unconfirmed by the moment. Ground breaking ceremony will take place on monday. They say that the tallest tower will have 440m.
