Yup, Gale International. And around 2008 they announced they were considering a large masterplan in Chongqing. Unfortunately we haven't had news since then, so probably they dismissed the idea.

Saw a lot of real estate promotional material on this project during my last trip to Changsha. I guess this project is a go, currently in marketing and bidding phase

It looks like work has been completed for the park/lake. Tall residential towers are rising but no hint of a supertall going up yet.


The location:

From Wade Shepard's video, stuff obviously is under construction, so can we move this from proposed to U/C?

Also Changsha is actually very aggressive about populating this area. The a number Highschools (the best ones actually) will move to Meixi lake starting 2015, and most of the SOEs in the city will move there too after that date. Once that happens, it will essentially force people in old city to commute to the new city for school and work... Quite clever of them, as people tend to follow schools and employment, and by moving existing institutions rather than creating new ones, the area gain instant credibility. However, it will make the old city worse place to live as a result.

If you are talking about that single tall building, then it is probably is cancelled. In the latest drawing that building isn't even there. In its place is two smaller towers, also the entire urban development is reduced. Perhaps move it to skyscrapers or high rises. In any case, it is way beyond proposal stage right now.


Please look at
The City Website for this place
The Developer Website for this place
This is the real estate marketing brochure for Meixi lake
This is the real estate tracking site for this place, which has a good list of projects in this development.
