This project will be built along the area on the left. The view is quite old anyway, around 2005 I think.

All those projects are nice and tall. However, Chongqin still lacks a distinctive landmark like Shanghai CBD's Oriental Pearl Tower or Beijin CBD's CCTV building. Chongqin will need something that can stand out in this forest of boxy skyscrapers to leave a lasting impression to the visitors.

What's that thin Chrysler building in the distance across the river? btw, no distinctive landmark? No lasting impression to visitors? I don't think so.

CHONGQING FINANCIAL STREET
CHONGQING, PRC

The Chongqing Financial Street is a series of 7 parcels of land, located in the heart of the Chongqing Financial District (CQFS), at the tip of the peninsula where the two major rivers split. Chongqing has become one of China’s major inland cities. The 7 parcels run north to south along Wuyi Road on the west side, and Singhua Road for the most part on the east side. It begins south of Minzu Road, and ends north of Ciqi Street. Two key cultural monuments directly adjacent to the site are the Liberation Monument and the Luohan Temple. The site is easily accessible from various subway stations. The district will also be integrated into the proposed pedestrian street network.

The proposed master plan aims to transform the CQFS into a functional and effective financial district of international importance, with pedestrian-friendly public open spaces. The proposed master plan comprises of mainly high and middle level office buildings, as well as a hotel, service apartments, and retail.

CQFS Master Plan has introduced several sustainable features, including atrium gardens within office towers, green roofs, the use of locally available materials to reduce transportation cost, and a common service tunnel (CST) that would prepare infrastructure in advance to ease future construction.

SPECS
FACILITY
Master Plan, Urban Design

SIZE
Site Area:73,300 sm
GFA above grade: 890,000 sm
GFA below grade: 140,000 sm
GFA High-class office: 370,000 sm
GFA Middle-class office: 230,000 sm
GFA Podium retail: 130,000 sm
GFA 5-star hotel: 35,000 sm
GFA Service apartments: 125,000 sm
Underground parking: 3,500 sm

CREDITS
Client: Chongqing Financial Street Real Estate Co., Ltd

We can confirm the roof heights finally. Spire heights remain unknown excepting for the tallest tower, which we already knew.

Heights.
380m +spire = 430m
240m +spire (very long)
200m +spire (medium)
180m +spire (very long)
220m
250m
140m
210m
* The two "very long" spires look as long as the spire in the main tower. Therefore, the 240m one is likely to be around 290m.

Chongqing have a very unique landscape. Two rivers run through the city and meets at the tip of a giant delta that is the city's central district.

What's more distinctive, is that the two rivers are of different colours. One is filled with sand and mud runoffs making it yellow and the other one is the typical greenish blue.

I believe there isn't a second city in the world that have these natural features.

It's natural, that river has always looked like that. Same as the Amazon and many other rivers around the world. I don't know where did you read that it's all pollution, typical anti-Chinese crap

Well there's undeniably a pollution problem in the rivers, nevertheless if it was all cleaned up it would still be brown and that picture would still look cool.

Read my post. Sand and mud run-offs from very dry areas on the path of the river.

Sand and mud is not pollution, they're simply run offs from an area that historically receives very little precipitation.

Agreeing with the top. Typical ignorant anti-Chinese crap.

The river is all fine and dandy, but river is not a landmark.

I am not trying to bash Chongqin, I am just saying that it will be great if it can get something more out of the ordinary, like a unique looking TV tower or an unconventional-looking building.

Chongqing is developing in his own way
there is no need to build a TV tower or sth else to amuse others
if it's a necessity, I believe they will build it
but believe me, landmarks will come

An entirely natural occurence - the 'Meeting of the Waters' near Manaus, where the Amazon (brown) meets the Rio Negro (dark blue):

yeah it's nice.. as long as you're not living in it.

Density is a result of economics, human comfort requires a little bit of space.

^ sounds like you found your place mate, Chonqqing is ~80,000 square kilometres, you should have no issue with neighbours cutting their lawns at 8 in the morning
