CHONGQING | Chongqing Moi City (Proposed): 300m+, 69 floors. Moi developer's first project in town, it was early announced as an average 200m+ project, but the new design confirms another huge skyscraper which might be even above 350m due to the spire. Projected in Jiangbei district. Thread



New render, looks back to 70+ floors now. Second tower around 65 floors! No official news though.

No, and it isn't in the old city center, either. It's in Huayuan, which is on the outskirts of the main city. Kind of a strange location, but at least it will be within walking distance of the new number 3 metro line, which is being built now. It'll stick out like a sore *****, though.

A few other developments in Tianjin City, (ie, not Binhai). Kerry Center, whichever design has currently been settled on, is well under construction. Also, it is rumored that the Nanzhan development, (which is right next to Kerry Center), is going to have a pair of 400m towers, perhaps the ones originally envisaged for the place currently planned for the Nanjing Lu supertall. No pics have been released yet, however.

Here's another little mystery project for Tianjin, (not sure on the exact height, it could be anywhere from about 250m to around 300):



This is probably not a final design. It's for a newly announced development district on the west side of town:



There is a McDonald's where that building stands right now.

That's quite interesting since the initial proposal for Nanzhan cluster was 2x400m~ and several towers of 200m.


Then they changed to 4x70~ fl, 300m~.


Back to the first concept maybe?

I really hope they can reverse back to the first one, or even they can reduce the heights. imo the heights are not that important, the design of the whole cluster shows the real power of a city scape (a successful example is the Beijing Jianwai Soho, boxy but beautiful)

The first design looks awful; what's with that autrocious circular structure and repetitive curvy towers?! The second is more tasteful, I would prefer it but with the same heights of the first design.

If you look at that 1st render, however, it takes up the entire area for the Nanzhan development. We now know that at least half that area is going to be Kerry Center, so I don't think that particular rendering of the Nanzhan project is possible anymore.

By the way, the rest of my photos from the Kerry Center development are in this thread.

TIANJIN | R&F Morgan Building (Proposed): 415m. There is almost no info by the moment about this project developed by R&F Properties in Xiangluowan CBD of Binhai New Area. Thread



New design? I can count 110 floors, 97 if we exclude the light blue part, which are probably technical floors. You can see the render on the wall too.

Pics by donald0214.










The studio is probably Goettsch Partners as the project is listed on its website. No info at all though, just the name listed.

Another much better image, still rather conceptual I guess.

New version, 2x420m, posted by xing101278. What the hell is going on in Tianjin??!! :O


They took the pic from the TV. No official release yet.

Kerry Center is next to Nanzhan/South Station cluster, not sure wether we are seeing both projects here or only Nanzhan cluster.

They wrote:
天津新闻:南站地标水晶双塔高420米,为天大建筑系设计(图)
看了效果图,确实很漂亮,希望不要改方案,改高度,尽快落实开发商,尽快施工
管理组注:此项目与嘉里中心是2个项目,不要混淆
and
此项目与嘉里中心330米摩天是2个项目,不要混淆,希望尽快开工!
下图为网友从电视台新闻中的截图,所以效果模糊

I'm not sure, my Chinese is still too poor and Google translator isn't helping. Two possible interpretations.

1: We can see both Nanzhan cluster (2x420m) and Kerry Center (330m) here, don't confuse them because they are different projects..
2: Don't confuse this project (Nanzhan cluster, 2x420m) with Kerry Center (330m), which we can't see on the image.

First supertall in Guiyang, a 7 star hotel of 77 floors. Unknown height by the moment. The developers are China Resources Group (Hong Kong), Kingsbury International Holdings and Al Rajhi Bank (Saudi Arabia). The tower is the main landmark of a 9.53 sq km masterplan designed by Atkins.
