BEIJING | CBD Eastwards Extension | 300-450m x 4 | 1000-1475ft x 4 | +250m x 3 | +820ft x 3 | App

All this has been released yesterday and today. I can't find decent renders, sorry. Only screenshots of the videos broadcasted by the CCTV yesterday.

The highest proposal has 668m. Other articles claim they are planning 3x330m.
Completion: 6-8 years.
Total area of the masterplan: 7 million sqm.

7 proposals by:
SOM
KPF
Foster
ADPi
China Academy of Urban Planning & Design
Tsinghua Urban Planning & Design Institute
Guangzhou Urban Planning & Deisng Institute

Screenshots of the different proposals. No idea what renders are proposed by each studio, or what studio proposed the 668m one. Hopefully they'll release detailed info soon so that we can put things in order. Anyway there's no reason to think they'll pick the tallest proposal by the moment...

beijing, as the capital should definitely build with the cbd expansion with a big emphasis on green technology like that guy in the vid said. it'd be better to have beijing's environmentally friendly cbd set an example for the rest of the country. traffic is probably still going to suck though.

As always with Beijing great architecture bad city planning. These buildings are spaced too far apart, it looks more like an architecture showcase rather than a city IMO.

Whether you like it or not, it is a style. Since buildings are already very tall, there is no need to stick them together to save space. There is no such difference between an architecture showcase and a city. The point is to construct enough high quality office space within a certain a amount of land, in a stylistic way. New York and Chicago's high density CBD is one way of doing this, but not the only way. Tall buildings surrounded by parks and trees are not as compelling when you look from above, but will be more pleasant when you live your life in it. Central park is real nice but you have to make your way through to it. On the other hand, if every one's office is sitting beside a park, though smaller, the view is accessible any minute for any one.

Looks like it. Pretty scummy if it isn't Libeskind's proposal.

I guess whoever builds it first gets the design, or it is just a conceptual one for Beijing and the actual tower will turn out to be very different.

Cities that have limited space usually build closer together. Beijing can grow in all direction as it has no sea or mountains next to it, therefore it tends to be more spacey, resulting in less traffic problems, cleaner enviroment, less crowded streets etc.

However for skyscraper fans it may not look as good :S
