GUANGZHOU | East Tower | 530m, 116 floors. Construction – Ground works. Architect: KPF. Developer: New World Land. Soon after the new developer purchased the project in December 2008, a new design was announced breaking the symmetry of the former twin project. Several proposals were released through 2009, but the actual layout wasn’t known till the day of the ground breaking ceremony in September 2009. Since there are still very few details available, the height of the building may not be final Project thread.
Another rejected design, by SPARCH studio.

SHANGHAI | Huangpu District Masterplan | 300m+. Proposed. Architect: Gensler. Not much information is known about this long term masterplan released in late 2009, likely to be launched during or after the 2010 Expo. Gensler is the only known proposal by the moment.
Another render, from Gensler's annual report.

This actually looks amazing. Hadid is good, but much of her works is the same, but i really do like this one, looks very elegant.

I'm doing the same thing with Google Earth. All the towers, masterplans, project, CBDs, etc. that you post in this thread, I make a placemark for each one.
BTW, I have many projects that doesn't have an exactly location.
Not just the Chinese supertalls, I mean all the supertalls around the world, with a few Skyscrapers and Highrises...


But for now, I be waiting for that Google Earth KML file that you'll post...

Bye...!

First concept image of the 103 floor tower under design by SOM for Fuzhou city. It'll be called 103 Tower. Still too few details to opening a thread imo.

NANJING | Nanjing Tower | 450m, 118 floors. Approved. Architect: AEDAS. Developer: Suning Real Estate. This tower is called to become the main landmark project of Nanjing’s new Hexi CBD. The height could be drastically reduced according to unsourced rumors, and the final project could be just around 350-400m. Project thread.
Possible new design, around 90 floors. Including the facade it reaches around 100 structural floors, it should be around 400-450m, but imo it has chances to reach 500m.

NANJING | Xinjiekou Plaza | 380m. Approved. Developer: Suning Real Estate. One of the three supertall projects to be developed by Suning Group at its home city. No details have been released about this project, but it is rumored that the maximum height may surpass 400m. The design may be changed anyway.
Possible final design, they think it has 415m, but no sources about the height.

Nanjing World Trade Center Project

In September of 2007, F&T Group and JP Morgan Real Estate Fund secured a project location on the southern part of the new Hexi CBD. The Hexi CBD is often regarded as the “Pudong” of Nanjing, in part due to the strong desire on the part of the government to have it become a financial district. This World Trade Center project has been authorized and licensed by the Word Trade Center Association to become the Nanjing World Trade Center. The chosen location is already home to many high-rise office buildings, a park and one of the largest convention centers in China. The project is scheduled to break ground in 2010 and be completed by 2015.


The proposed premium mixed-use development encompasses an area of approximately 327,000 square meters (~3.5 million square feet), consisting of a 125,000 square meter Class A office tower, a 61,000 square meter high-end serviced apartment, a 70,000 square meter retail center, an 18,000 square meter five-star hotel, and a 53,000 square meter mid-end hotel.

OMG damn it, i saw this yesterday, was going to post it but didn't because there was just one rendering

This project have encountered some problems. The oppositions (mainly the residents who lived there) complains that the area that 103Tower supposedly to be built on are quite new while those people don't live there support building it. Many of the residential buildings are somewhat newly built in the sense that it haven't reach 10 years old and not to mention a expensively built school stationed there. Although most residents haven't paid of all of their mortgage debts, they are pretty much determine to stay. I would find it hard for officials to demolished the whole area. Fuzhou is getting like 2 new CBD including this one. Hopefully they can hire a good city planner because this city is messy (in a way) due to lack of careful planning i guess.

Heres the area where they will build 103 tower.

Actually the vacancy rate of A grade offices in Beijing has remained stable around 15-18% for the last 7 years despite of the countless projects that they have completed. Even in 2009 the market had a huge net absorption of office space. Is this rate too high anyway? Not for a booming economy, they need a large stock otherwise they could have bottlenecks like Shanghai had in 2008, when the vacancy rate reached less than 1%. In Beijing there's a lag of about 6-7 quarters only till the current available office space is absorbed by the market, i.e., the occupied office area area in the fourth quarter of 2009 exceeded the total available office space of fourth quarter of 2007. You can check all these facts reading the reports published by Colliers.

I can't understand what the media pretends with those fake articles. That HK private owned developers are wasting billions in projects that will remain empty for decades? Ah, journalists, always publishing lies!

I think the investors in China know what they are doing. If the vacancy rate is high, then it would have been on hold.

CHONGQING | Sun Valley Tianhe Tower | 450m~, 95~ floors. Construction – Ground works. Developer: Yingli Properties. Tough it was released in 2008, very few details have been unveiled about this large multi-tower development as not even the architect , the height or the final proposal have been announced. The masterplan has another 4 big towers, being 3 of them clearly above 200m. The second tallest tower is known to have 288m. Ground clearing works are taking place at a very decent speed at the location of the main tower. Newly released renders indicate that the height could be just slightly above 300m. Project thread.
Final design? The main tower is very disappointing, the rest of the masterplan looks stunning!
