CHONGQING | United International | 287m | 942ft | Com

After being on hold for several years, works have resummed now. Upwards revision to 282m was announced 2 years ago, but it remains unknown whether the change was finally accepted or not.

New design!!! Spire should be around 350m. The pic was taken at the sales center next to the construction site. We know the new developer now too, Lanko Group.

looks like the empire state building, they might want to think about building it in New York.

Actually Chongqing already has quite a few ones in similar stile. One even called New York - New York!

I don't like the redesign, the initial tower was far better. Spires are not the panacea...

U sure? take a look at the bar in the middle of my quote. The first design also has some sort of bar rising to the top.

The cladding of the newer design should cover the bar thing. I hope I'm right too, really hate the former design.
