318m/330m incl the crown, 271m now with a flat roof sounds right to me. Remember that its standing on the highest point of the peninsula roughly 150m above the river...

It looks like it's from the 90s or early 2000s. Beige+green with a cylinder on top.

Like the design. Finally something very tall and not of total glass cladding that I'm fed up with.

I agree this tower gives JFB some diversity. But I still like the pointy version better had it been chosen.

i wish they would keep those buildings. they add some soul to the city's skyline, and make this part of Chongqing look like an actual, real city. besides, to me it's the juxtaposition of old and new that makes the modern and organic architecture stand out all the more.

The observation platform looks amazing. Is there any taller building in the world with a platform really on the very top of the tower? It reminds me of the World Trade Center in New York. There was nothing above you, just air. Today most observation decks are behind glass and sometimes you still have many floors above it.

PS: Oh, this is only a helipad? It should be an observation deck! It would be perfect.

Hoodycn where did you park your helicopter??

Nice shots, is it an observation deck or did you ask for permission? Could get some really nice picture on a clear day.

Edit: Just realised they're not your snaps. If you can still answer the questions feel free.

They said you are free to go on the top, the helipad is a nice
observation deck.

The original rendering for this building looked great. But now the building looks old-fashioned already. There's certainly nothing futuristic here.
