More supertalls in Beijing CBD? That sounds like exactly what we want.

Beijing expects another supertall in Wangjing.

Wangjing Business area is located in the northeast.
According to several press releases the tallest tower will reach 300m.

Article on ShenzhenDaily of 20th of October

Here is the link to the article: http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-...ent_816117.htm

Here is its content:

Quote:
Futian finance center growing faster
Liu Minxia

FOUR more high-rise buildings belonging to financial service companies will be erected in Shenzhen’s central business district (CBD) in Futian, accelerating the city’s development of the area into a financial center known as “Shenzhen’s Wall Street.”

Four finance companies, including China Life Insurance Co., acquired land parcels covering about 23,000 square meters at the Futian CBD for a total of 2.32 billion yuan (US$337 million) at an auction Friday afternoon.

Among the four land lots adjacent to Jintian Road, the largest, covering more than 8,000 square meters, was bought for 985 million yuan by Sino Life Insurance Co., which moved its headquarters to Shenzhen from Shanghai a year ago.

China Life, which bought an additional piece of land for 515 million yuan, plans to build a 100-meter-tall office building for its Shenzhen branch, according to Liang Yong, general manager of the company’s Shenzhen branch.

CDB Leasing Co. Ltd. purchased another lot for 481 million yuan and Minsheng Financial Leasing Co. Ltd. bought the remaining land for 338 million yuan.

At least 60 percent of the office area in the four buildings should be for the companies’ own use and won’t be eligible for sale for 10 years, according to the contracts.

The four office buildings to be completed before October 2012 will have a total construction area of 289,000 square meters, giving the land an average value of around 8,000 yuan per square meter, relatively very low for the area, analysts say.

“For that area, residential apartments are being sold for around 25,000 yuan per square meter and offices sell at 40,000 yuan per square meter, so the land price is very low,” said Wu Jian, a director with DTZ’s South China branch.

This illustrates the support the city government is lending to financial service companies setting up offices in the Futian CBD, said Song Ding, a senior real estate analyst with China Development Institute.

Shenzhen, whose competitiveness as a financial center ranks fifth worldwide in the latest Global Financial Centers Index published late last month, has been actively seeking to enhance its status as a financial center.

Ping An Insurance recently broke ground for the construction of its headquarters building on a land lot in Futian CBD it acquired for 1.66 billion yuan in November 2007, which is planned for completion at the end of 2014.

In addition, 13 other well-known companies, including CITIC Bank, Guosen Securities and China Merchants Securities, have acquired land to build their office buildings in the area. The Shenzhen Stock Exchange will be relocated to the CBD from its existing location in Luohu District.

518m, 120 floor proposal in Qingdao. I can't find any other source, I don't think it has any chance. I wont add it to the lists unless they release some official announcement.

SOM's proposal won the Beijing CBD masterplan competition. 4x300-450m according to the current models.



SOM Wins Beijing CBD Competition



















October 23, 2009 (Beijing, China) – The Chicago and China offices of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) were named the winner of an international design competition to expand the Beijing Central Business District (CBD). The competition was sponsored by the Chaoyang District Government and the Beijing CBD Administration Committee. Seven teams of the world’s leading urban planners, urban designers and architects were invited to participate. Philip Enquist, FAIA, Partner-in-Charge of Urban Design and Planning for SOM, led this effort.

The SOM plan calls for the establishment of three new districts anchored by signature parks and green boulevards. New modes of public transportation are proposed, including express commuter rail service between the Beijing Capital International Airport, the CBD, and high speed rail service at Beijing South Station. A new streetcar system is proposed to conveniently link all areas of the CBD. A network of small, walkable blocks is proposed to establish a pedestrian-friendly scale for development and every street would be bicycle friendly.

The SOM plan defines new strategies for building municipal infrastructure and high performance buildings. Implementation of the plan could reduce energy consumption within the district by 50%, reduce water consumption by 48%, reduce landfill waste by 80%, and result in a 50% reduction in carbon emissions. Reduction in emissions from office buildings alone would equate to a reduction of 215,000 tons of CO2 per year, which is the equivalent of planting 14 million adult trees.

SOM’s vision for the Beijing CBD provides the framework that will enable China’s capital city to grow as a global center for commerce, yet be a green and ecological setting for healthy life.

About SOM

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) is one of the leading architecture, urban planning, interior design, and engineering firms in the world, with a 75-year reputation for design excellence and a portfolio that includes some of the most important architectural accomplishments of the 20th and 21st centuries. Since its inception, SOM has been a leader in the research and development of specialized technologies, new processes and innovative ideas, many of which have had a palpable and lasting impact on the design profession and the physical environment. The firm’s longstanding leadership in design and building technology has been honored with more than 1,300 awards for quality, innovation, and management. The American Institute of Architects has recognized SOM twice with its highest honor, the Architecture Firm Award—in 1962 and again in 1996. The firm maintains offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Washington, DC, London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Brussels.
