Let's hope we see this clad soon. As the world's most populous municipality, Chongqing deserves a supertall, and the last thing it needs is an unfinished one.

no worries.

If you look really closely at the last pic, you can see cladding getting started on the top of the bottom 1/3rd of the tower. Sort of odd in that usually cladding starts from the bottom and goes up, but I think we'll start to see this baby clothed in a meaningful way - very soon.

I agree, can't wait! and yes, Chongqing deserves many supertalls, certainly moreso than Dubai and other cities that already have 'em!

Somehow, Chongqing doesn't have that clean look that Guangzhou (pearl river new city) and Shanghai (Lujiazu) have. Its a shame since they have many nice towers rising up near and around this area.

I was in Chongqing October 2010 and to me it looks dirty from a far but clean once you get up close. I stayed at the Somerset hotel in Jiefangbei. It was one of my favorite cities in China, I would definitely go back.

err...as is the case with every other developing country.

Make up your mind, you either loathe the country or you love it judging by some your posts

at least China is doing something about their slums, instead of other countries - such as the one Hellrazer is from. ...

Also, if you've ever been to China, you'll know that these pictures don't do those little cities any justice. It's not the same as a latin american shanty town, Chinese 'slums' are full of culture and history; yet the Chinese govt IS picking these people up as the land is reclaimed for skyscrapers and not just 'moving the slum' as is the case with most other Industrialized Nations (see US-Eminent Domain).

Yes, Jiefangbei CBD is Very much a Chinese Manhattan, or a Chinese Vanhattan to be more specific/accurate. ...

Can we confirm the final height? Including helipad. So many different alleged heights around ranging from 270 to 330m.

It is strange that it's T/O and we still don't know the height.

On another topic, it's almost strange that SW China goes from nearly tropical in summer to looking so cold in winter.
