Wuhan Shipping Center, 300m, 63 floors. The render looks too concept, I don't think we need a thread for this one by the moment.

SHENYANG | Shenyang Lotte World | 300m~ | 78~ floors, 2x70~ floors. Approved – Under design. Architect: RTKL. Developer: Lotte World. Though the ground breaking ceremony of this project took place in late 2008, the first concrete design wasn’t published till late 2009, and it remains unclear whether RTKL’s design will be final. The layout includes 7 big skyscrapers, 3 of them likely to reach around 300m. The project isn’t expected to be started till late 2010 or maybe later. Project thread.
This one wont be a supertall either.

Posted by chiller. 275m, 223m.


This official source confirms the height
http://www.syghgt.gov.cn/upload/file...0%E5%A4%A9.htm

That plan doesn't fit with any of the renders posted earlier. We still don't know the final design.

About the untold story of the Jiuzhou International Tower. This is a project we already should have a thread about. Problem is: No information at all. But it looks quite real and very serious.

九洲国际大厦/Jiuzhou International Tower. 303m, 68 floors, in Nanning. All the info we have comes from a couple of shabby pictures somebody took of some official paper about it. I haven't been able to find any single item of information about it in Google.







And the alleged renders




An that's all! May look like an average fake proposal fabricated by some bored forumer. But the thing is that in the last weeks they are posting regular updates of the plot activity, and they are digging quite fast already. Pics by 摩天南宁.








On the other hand, those forums are full of liars, so who knows. Maybe it'll be just a midrise project.

TIANJIN | R&F Tower | 415m | 93 floors. Construction – Ground works. Developer: R&F Properties. This project will become the tallest landmark tower at the newly developed Xiangluowan CBD in the Binhai new area. Both the architect and the final height for this tower remain unknown. We only know that Goettsch & Partners designed one of the proposals, probably the chosen one. Due to the spire, the total height should be easily above 450m. Ground breaking ceremony will take place in late 2009 according to recent news.Project thread.
Goettsch Partners Unwrap Tianjin Supertall

Published on 07-11-2010 by Skyscrapernews.com
Coming from the pens of Goettsch Partners is another supertall tower proposed for the Chinese city of Tianjin.

With a height of 439 metres, the scheme is being developed by Guangzhou R&F Properties as a mixed use development to contain 294,570 square metres of space and 91 occupiable levels. This will include 134,900 square metres of grade A office space, 55 condos, a 400 bedroom five star hotel, and 8,550 square metres of retail on the lower floors.

The tower is designed to set back as it rises and as the number of service cores in the building that host 55 lifts decrease. This means that despite the shrinking size of the tower on the upper levels, the space between the core and the building perimeter will actually be the same as on the lower floors.

Working as a slickly glazed affair, the tower has been planned to have what appears to be an unwrapping motion as it rises. Along with the curving corners on the building, this is intended to reference ancient Chinese scrolls. Exploiting this concept are the atria located at every point that the tower unwraps whilst on top of each will be a landscaped roof.

Construction has yet to begin on site as the architects are still working on polishing the design, but they expect the scheme to be completed in 2015 making an impressive counterpoint to the nearby Sinosteel Tower.

Remember Shenzhen Feng Long Center?
Proposal 1


Proposal 2


They're starting it on June 1 2011. I guess they'll release a new design.

These two don't look particularly exciting (I'd say 2nd one is still better though). They better release a new design.

Totally disagree with you there. Not exciting? the second one looks out of this world, could do with being 200m taller though and without the spires to take it to 600+m

I'm not saying they are bad but just nothing special, hence "not exciting" compared to some other supertall designs we see rising and proposed in various Chinese cities these days.

That first design was never my coup of tea, but i've always liked the second design, very elegant, especially its top section. Perhaps it would be better without the two spires though.

TIANJIN | Kerry Center | 333m, 72 floors. Under construction – Ground works. Developer: Kerry Properties. Architect: SOM. Intensive ground works started in early 2009 and the underground floors started construction in the second quarter. The project is scheduled to be completed within 2013. The design of the main tower could be changed though. Project thread.
Tianjin Kerry Center

Tianjin, China

Tianjin Kerry Center is envisioned as an urbane civic place that reinforces the existing texture of the city. Inspired by Tianjin’s history as a city of districts, the project—which consists of three residential towers, a retail neighborhood, office tower, and hotel tower—promotes connectivity through its massing and orientation.

View corridors to the HaiheRiver, the historic quarter, the central business district, and the government district, are maintained throughout the project site. The 330-meter-tall office tower is a landmark structure that sits on the project’s central plaza, which is on axis with Liberation Plaza, the train station, and the central gardens. The residential and hotel towers are equally conscious of their surroundings, and are oriented to create slim profiles that maintain access to views.

As a continuation of the urban environment, rather than an intervention, Tianjin Kerry Center will be a unique, vibrant place of commerce, movement, and civic discourse that sets a new standard for sympathetic development in the city.

Project Facts

Completion Year: 2010
Site Area: 86,164 m2
Project Area: 499,000 m2
Building Height: 215 m
Number of Stories: 61

A lot of rumor projects in the last few days. None of them are official, so likely fake. But who knows.

1) 400m tower in Shenyang by R&F Properties.

2) 500m tower in Suzhou by Hang Lung. It's supposed to be one of the 400m twin plots next to the Gate of the East tower. Several bloggers at Soufun posted about this one, so it might be real after all.

3) 600m and 2x400m plots for Shanghai Suzhou Creek masterplan. This is a total fake imo.

4) 2x520m in Guiyang. They even posted a render, but no sources, and I couldn't find any info. Likely fake too imo.

More about Wuhan Greenland Center, 600m+. This is the first time we can see a render of the project.



The project was announced this summer.

New images of Dalian Greenland, 518m. The architect is HOK. But I still wonder if the design is final.

Beijing Z15 Plot could be revised upwards from 400m to 510m according to unsourced rumors. Official height still 400m. There's a design contest on going anyway.

Concept models posted by 尊龙丹心.




CITIC Real Estate bought this plot
Renders from their website




There're several proposals, by Arup, Terry Farrell, MVA, and others. Don't know which one is this, or if it is final.

http://www.realestate.citic.com/iwcm...bTo=/show.vsml




Most Z plots are being sold these days.
http://finance.ifeng.com/roll/20101119/2914755.shtml

The bidders are very powerful: CITIC, Evergrande, SOHO, Vantone, R&F, China Overseas and some others. The floor area ratio for several plots imply that they will be easily above 250m.

Several presss releases in August claimed that in addition to the 400m plot, another two would be 300m projects:
http://www.chinanews.com.cn/estate/n.../2269925.shtml

Keep on mind that all this has nothing to do with the CBD extension masterplanned by SOM. These plots are all in the Phase 1 of the CBD.

SUZHOU | Suzhou Twin Towers | 2x400m+. Concept proposal. Twin tower project proposed at West Lake CBD. Official plot planning shows that the height will be above 400m.
Greenland and Hang Lung are interested in these plots according to 'reliable sources' this article says. New preliminary height: 500m.
