KUNMING | South Asian Gate | 268m | On Hold









Last Friday ground was broken on Kunming’s first skyscraper – the 72-story, 316m/1036ft South Asian Gate building which will be located in the Tuodong Lu Central Business District, according to Kunming media reports.

Upon its completion, which is scheduled for four to five years from now, the building will be home to a five-star hotel, serviced apartments, grade-A office space, residential apartments, a commercial area plus leisure and entertainment facilities. It will be the largest building in Yunnan province.

The building is a joint project between Jiangsu World Group and Yunnan Zhongju Group. In addition to being a local landmark and the dominant feature in Kunming’s skyline, the skyscraper will serve as a hub for business between China and South and Southeast Asia.

South Asian Gate will ocupy a land area of 34,500 square meters with a total construction area of 550,000 square meters.



As a figure project in Kunming, South Asian Gate takes more attention of the Municipal Party Committee and Government, according to sources. On November 3rd, the developer of “South Asian Gate” brought six conceptional blueprints from well-known foreign and domestic architectural agencies to Kunming Urban Planning and Major Programs Briefing Meeting. On December 2nd, the project was past and announced by Kunming Planning Bureau via the 174th administrative approval announcement.

second one for me as well, it looks taller and gives shade for those who want cool summer walking underneath it.

Although this design does resemble the new building in Beijing.

I think it'll boring within 5 years of being built (or from the day that somebody first sets eyes on it). I like the first one better, from a "staying interesting" point of view.

China's most government officials like these high-rise buildings and they consider them as the symbol of opening and internationalization.
