East Tower, 476m, but it is one of the rejected designs. The diagram isn't too accurate, it has some other errors:
China 117 Tower: 570m according to the diagram, but it has 597m.
Shanghai Tower: 636m, should be 632m.
West Tower: 432m, should be 440m, 432 is a very old height.
CCTV: 270m. Lol, it has only 234m.

Project thread.

Final design. 530m, 116 floors, by KPF. Ground breaking ceremony took place on September 28th.

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.
Ground breaking ceremony took place on September 29th. Maximum height: 400m, 90 floors. No details, no renders. The final design hasn't been released imo.

裕景地产集团通过招拍挂方式早前以13亿元人民币拿下了沈阳“金廊”28#地块。该地块毗邻著名的沈阳市政府广场,总占地面积约8.4万平方米,总建筑面积120万平方米,规划为集超五星级酒店、五A级写字间、国际商业中心等多业态的大型都市综合体,总投资将达到80亿元,其中最高建筑规划为约90层,高度近400米。此项目竣工之后,将与大连裕景中心项目联袂上演中国新北方的雍容风采。

Eton Properties Group shot hanging way through the earlier move to 1.3 billion yuan in Shenyang won the "Golden Corridor" 28 # block. The land is adjacent to the famous Square of Shenyang Municipal Government, with a total area of about 8.4 million square meters, total construction area of 1.2 million square meters, planning for the set of super five-star hotel, five A-Scriptorium, an international business center and many other large-scale Yetai urban complex, with a total investment will reach 80 million, of which the tallest building planned for about 90 layers, height of nearly 400 meters. After completion of this project will be moving in unison with the Dalian Eton Center project be staged in northern China's new style of Grace.

i like the new east tower design, it fits the west tower better than the previous designs, it will be a timeless classic ... and i like setbacks

but i would still prefer twins, because i dont find west tower that attractive without his twin brother. it would look so much better if there were two such monolitic structures.

3q


Beijing CBD Eastwards extension.


All this has been released yesterday and today. I can't find decent renders, sorry. Only screenshots of the videos broadcasted by the CCTV yesterday.

The highest proposal has 668m. Other articles claim they are planning 3x330m.
Completion: 6-8 years.
Total area of the masterplan: 7 million sqm.

7 proposals by:
SOM
KPF
Foster
ADPi
China Academy of Urban Planning & Design
Tsinghua Urban Planning & Design Institute
Guangzhou Urban Planning & Deisng Institute

Screenshots of the different proposals. No idea what renders are proposed by each studio, or what studio proposed the 668m one. Hopefully they'll release detailed info soon so that we can put things in order. Anyway there's no reason to think they'll pick the tallest proposal by the moment...












































All heights are my personal estimates. Pics by 拾掇拾掇


Proposal 1. 1x668m (official), 2x400m+ and 4x300-450m~

These towers have 88~, 80~, 72~ and 70~ floors.


The other three have 150~ , 100~ and 90~ floors.








Proposal 2. 1x500m~ and 1x300m~. The main towers have around 116 and 70 floors.










Proposal 3. 1x500m~ and 4x275m+












Proposal 4. 1x300m~




Proposal 5. By SOM. 1x452m~, 110+ floors; 1x375m~, 88~ floors; 2x310m~, 70~ floors; and 2x250m+














Proposal 6. 1x500m~. Also a TV tower around 600m.












Proposal 7. No pics
