Yet another skyscraper project in China where land is wasted.

The point for China to build upwards is to save farmland. Not to have 60 meters between every building...
China still has a few things to learn from Hong Kong and Macau on that front.

I disagree...Your argument is flawed. HK and Macau are unique that they have to built so close due to their geographic constraint. China on the other hand is a lot bigger. Granted, China's population is also bigger but in terms of population density, China ranks around 140 people per Sq km (less than Japan or India for that matter). Much less than HK's 6400 people per Sq km or Macau's 18000 people per sq km. All I am saying is every cities are unique to their geography and history - you cannot compare Apples to Oranges.

Perhaps, but only about a third of China is really populated. And even in the (south)eastern parts where the people live, there are lots of mountains.

The thing about HK and Macau is that they don't need to have farmland at all. China on the other hand is suffering from high inflation in food prizes, and have to import more and more food in the years to come. There is no hiding that the urban sprawl takes up some of the best farmland available either.

However, I guess I didn't consider the benefits of having green area's outside. It is very much needed in China. Especially for sports. If they add a swimming pool, and maybe a basket and tennis court there, a place to grill and some benches, I guess that'd help alot to the psychology and well-being.

Wanda East Port Project







To reply to Bannor's point. I'm not sure why they build so many tall buildings so far from the city centers. In my mind it runs in contrast with how cities 'should' be built. I think the areas farther from the center that have tall buildings are rather cheaper to live in.

But these buildings, they are being built very close to the main downtown area in the new central business district. In five or ten years this area will have lots of skyscrapers.

By 大连市. Almost finished, the other side of the facades isn't fully completed I think. Busy with the podium interiors too.

Wow, it certainly is impressive! But I'm also in favor of placing buildings direct to the road and next to each other. Creating new york style canyons.
