SUZHOU | Suzhou Twin Towers (Concept proposal): 300m~, 68 floors. Twin tower project exposed in the concept models of Suzhou new CBD.



More info about Suzhou CBD. The twins next to the Gate of the East are planned to be above 400m. Also, there are another 4x300m planned in the same area. So, we can expect 6 supertalls here.

Map showing the height for every plot

Some concept renders for the twins, no real designs by the moment.

CHONGQING | Jiangbei Yingli Tower (Approved): 385m, 81 floors. Yingli Properties' tallest project was launched in October 2007 and will be built in Jiangbei district. The official name for the new landmark hasn't been published by the moment. Thread



Final version released, and fortunately it has nothing to do with that retro design. The tallest tower is 100 floors, 450m~; second tallest around 68 floors, 280m+. The name of the project is Sun Valley.



重庆晚报讯(记者 李珩 钱波)在昨日江北区观音桥步行街延伸段的开街仪式上,江北区区长陶长海透露,年内将拆迁完渝北二村67亩地块(位于江北新世界百货后),在该地块实施“太阳谷”项目,其中包括百层楼的超高建筑。

据介绍,渝北二村是今年江北区建设的重点,年内将全部拆迁完毕。该地块今后将实施独具匠心的“太阳谷”项目:由5栋超高建筑组成,最高的有100层,低的也有50多层,将成为江北区的标志性建筑群。“这5栋建筑将主要用作酒店、商务,超5星酒店也将入驻渝北二村。”

此外,五星级酒店将在观音桥商圈打“堆堆”,目前观音桥商圈及周边已有君豪大饭店和金源大饭店两座五星级酒店,年内还将添5个。

据了解,商圈(含周边)拟建的5座五星级酒店当中,“协信丹枫白露”公寓式五星大酒店已在建,一家由香港投资的五星酒店则相中了市老干中心这块黄金宝地,如今,该地块已搬迁拆除完毕,工程即将动工。另外,原欧式一条街上,正在改造装修一家五星饭店,而位于海洋富力广场和红旗河沟转盘,也将先后动工修建五星酒店。

WUXI | North Station CBD Twin Towers (Concept proposal): 2x350m+, 89 floors Official announcements claimed that there are two 89 floor towers planned at this financial district. However, the first available renders show a more modest design around 68 floors for these twins.



Seem to be 70-80 floors in this render. Around 330m I guess.

我公司于2007年4月15日派出了第一批监理人员进驻现场开展前期准备工作,克服了生活及工作上的种种困难,现已成立了昆明建设咨询监理公司湖南分公司。现场项目监理工作正常开展,基本理顺与建设各方及当地建设行政主管部门的工作关系。长沙世纪城于5月8日正式开始施工,至今展开施工的建筑总面积已达 100余万平方米。其中五合垸小学部已于7月1日主体封顶断水;W14、15区桩基施工基本完成,共计13栋已进入主体结构施工阶段;W11、12、13 区在进行桩基施工。目前监理人员已基本按工程实际全部到位。

公司领导对本工程的监理工作非常重视,组建了强有力的现场监理班子,由公司总经理助理曾凡绪担任总监,分公司总经理王建坤担任项目总监代表。2007年7月初公司总经理王蒙同志亲临工程第一线视察、指导,慰问现场监理人员,并要求总公司和分公司领导必须从后勤工作上给予切实保障,给监理人员创造一个良好的工作与生活环境,给予了监理人员贴己的关心;从人员、技术上总公司要给予全力的支持;从工作上对现阶段的监理工作提出了要求,对今后工程监理工作的工作重点指定了方向。此前,郝刚总工程师也莅临长沙世纪城工地检查、指导、培训。(湖南分公司报道)

is that supposed to be for the rising "new chinese middleclass" ?

Or is that more like for the lower class?

Here in Europe, areas like that are usually only inhabited by low-income underclass residents.

And they are going to change that Burj Dubai replica design, right?

I don't believe they are building that replica. The model is likelly to be conceptual until they release the real design. They do this in China all the time.

The plan itself is good. Density & greenery. Too many clones, that's the only problem.

The last post with pictures has something away of a concentration camp! This is a hell of a ugly project! With the copy of "the Burj" its a shame end a lack of creativity! They are making the same mistakes of the communisn end modernism during the cold war.

Why?? This is the true concept of sustainability. I'd go more radical though since I'd double the heights and build less buildings, so that we have a lot of extra open space.


They just multiplied this by 100.


Another example of excellent urbanism (pic by giallo)


This is the future. And I'm happy to see more and more cities around the world following this pattern
