I'm so glad to see this one may be coming soon. This tower is the main landmark of a masterplan that has been in the pipeline for several years, I thought it would become a never built project in the end.

Another northeast city joining the supertall club. Hopefully Harbin will follow. There're so many huge cities in China with no supertall projects on going. I'm guess we'll have threads for many of them in the coming years.

Northeast is an interesting area. Shenyang and Dalian is already going for a unique skyline while Changchun and Harbin lags behind, but that will change after this tower is built. :)

I like the design by Xiandai (Modern) #3.

actually all of them look quite nice. The first one looks kinda familiar, well the second one is just boxy, so I am gonna go with the third one. We have a few forumers from Changchun on SSC, maybe they can provide more information about this project.

Oh, maybe :( Too many people ask "where's this city" anyway :D
most likely because google is such a new invention and most people do not know it yet :)

Actually no , that's the Changchun administrative zone . The city itself is roughly 2-3 million . Still pretty big but not 7.5 million .
Because of China's population and the great rift between rural and urban development , there's little point in defining cities the way N. Americans might.

Anyway , as I'm living in Changchun , it's nice to finally see a thread on this . I'll be happy to get updates on it when it finally gets started .
