I think they need better towers for the Beijing East CBD. Yes, the Sun Valley Tianhe Tower looks really bad. I prefer the first one. im hoping they will further change the design of the towers.

Can't believe this thing is back! Feng Long Center/丰隆中心 in Shenzhen. 399m.
丰隆中心.

http://www.guandian.cn/article/20100222/91500.html
http://house.hexun.com/2010-02-22/122724151.html

Roof: 330m
Spires: 399.6m
66 floors

I don't think it's the final design anyway.

SUZHOU | The Wharf Supertower | 500m+, 100 floors. Approved. Architect: Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. Developer: The Wharf Holdings. This landmark project will be located at the core of Suzhou East Lake new CBD. Still without an official height, the project is very likely to surpass the 500m mark as it has a big structure over the top floor that should boost the total height far above 500m. However the design is still provisional, meaning that it could be changed again. The originally completion date of 2013 is unlikely to be fulfilled. Project thread.
Ground breaking ceremony coming soon. Final height rumored to be 450m, 92 floors. Pics by kel..

First images of the coming China Resources headquarters in Shenzhen. Around 68 floors, easily taller than 300m. A little disappointing since they expected something around 100 floors, but a stunning design on the other hand! It'll be built next to the Olympic Center complex.

GUANGZHOU | Baietan District Supertall | 500m+, 118 floors. Concept proposal. The Guangzhou Urban Planning Bureau is planning to develop the second major CBD in town in this area once the Zhujiang Xincheng CBD is completed. According to some preliminary proposals, the new area will host a huge tower around 118 floors.
Baietan will get a 600m+ skyscraper according to the press today. We should open a thread as soon as they release some more specific render.

Yes, we all know Chinese developers build skyscrapers to lose money. Maybe Fortune magazine should care a little bit more about their own collapsing country.

It is because most of this "criticism" unfounded and misdirected. I totally understand how the Chinese are completely fed up with it.

In any case, it is only the developers' problem that they over-estimated the de facto huge under-supply of office space in Beijing prior to the Olympics. The city had something like the equivalent of three Manhattans of office space u/c simultaneously prior to the Olympics. I'm surprised not more buildings are having problems finding tenants. But again, it is the (Chinese and foreign) developers' problems.

On another note, the recently finished 1IFC in Shanghai was over 90% leased even prior to its completion back in November 2009-- so things are looking healthy elsewhere in China. Most mid-tier cities are still suffering from a serious under-supply of office space.

How many times has the real-state bubble burst in Shanghai since 1997? two times? three times? In the meantime the Chinese economy has grown by 400%

I remember reading real-state prices had fallen by 30% in some Chinese cities in 2008-early 2009, so what? No one is denying real-state prices get a bit excessive from time to time.

I don't know how Chinese people can't stand the continous harassment by 99% of western media and journalists. If you want to look for a fool, you have 26.500.000 million fools here.
