It is really amazing the amount going up in china. How long until it turns into one big super city? However I did notice that many of the planned buildings look very familiar. in Chongqing I spotted the chrysler building, the Empire state and the sydney harbour bridge.

Megafabulous!!!! And no doubt that all of these signature developments are very well designed and engineered to state of the art specs. Like construction projects anywhere else in the world, the devil is in the execution by the construction firms but what firm wouldn't go the extra mile for these incredible buildings? China's just groovy all over!!

Amazing thread!

I became sad when I see that my country also is experiencing a boom in economy but we don`t have even one building over 200m being built.

But I hope that in the future Brazil will shine with more nice projects like China.


Thx for the updates!

Possibly China's Tallest Building to be Built in Zhuhai - 680m



珠海擬建680米高樓與澳門觀光塔相對

昨日,珠海十字門商務區規劃設計國際招標評標會在珠海舉行,美國HOK國際有限公司提供的一號方案成功競標,緊隨城市規劃中標方案的出爐,十字門商務區一期會展商務組團建築設計方案也將呈現,680米地標高樓或現身十字門,與澳門觀光塔隔岸相對交相輝映。會上記者了解到,十字門商務區奠基慶典將于12月8 日舉行。

今年7月,十字門商務區自發布規劃設計方案國際招標公告以來,引起了全球眾多國際頂尖規劃設計機構的關注,經過專家評委的反複討論、篩選之後,美國HOK國際有限公司的1號參選設計方案在眾多設計方案中脫穎而出。

“南灣中心”作為十字門的商業啟動區設置10萬平方米的會展場地,將建成珠江西岸最具規模、現代化程度最高、最具影響力的國際會議展覽中心。

中航通用飛機總部組團東接會展商務組團,占地20萬平方米,主要建設為通用飛機研發總部大樓、寫字樓、酒店等。“南灣山畔社區”為重視生活機能及居住環境的年輕人群打造高尚濱水人居,輔以各項生活配套;“橫琴碼頭”片區將規劃一系列多元的餐飲及零售空間,並配套濱水起居、私人游艇碼頭等;“橫琴中心”片區是十字門商務區的核心,位于專屬島上,由水族館、歌劇院作為“文化廊”南北端點,由一些文化、購物廣場構成,並與輕軌車站緊密結合;“橫琴濱水社區”片區東與澳門Cotai金光大道隔水相望,澳門風景盡收眼底。

Outdated data. I'll check completion dates, etc, before posting the next update.

So what's with this "Shanghai World Trade Center" listed at #8 in the ranking by height list, marked as "proposed" and supposedly 550 meters tall? I haven't found any info on it elsewhere.

Maybe thats the new one proposed in puxi? Personally i think that all the supertalls should be left on the pudong side, the name sounds nice and it adds to the already great skyline
