UPDATE


600m Tall Under Construction In Tianjin

Published on 17-11-2008 by Skyscrapernews.com
Unlike the fanfare of Dubai there has been barely a whisper, but a new 600 metre tall tower is now under construction in the Chinese city of Tianjin.

Named China 117 Tower after the number of storeys within the building, the scheme is being developed by Hong Kong based developer, Goldin Properties, who plan on their scheme truly dominating the city of Tianjin with it's 11 and a half million population.

The tower has been designed by an as yet unnamed architect. It will contain 406,000 square metres of internal space with floors 1 to 92 consisting of offices and the upper part of the tower from levels 93 to 117 due to be occupied by an as yet unnamed six star hotel operator.

In total the tower will cost $820 million US to construct, although this budget goes up to $1.2 billion when the mall it will stand above is also included.

The scale of this is enormous with the mall due to boast some 316,000 square metres of space - this is about two thirds of the floor-space of the Pentagon in Washington DC but still less than half the current largest shopping mall in China, South China Mall and not enough to even make the global top 10.

Once completed China 117 Tower will be the tallest building in the country over 100 metres taller than Shanghai World Financial Centre. This is a record it will hold until Gensler's planned 632m tall Shanghai Centre goes up in the city it takes its name from recapturing them the title.

China is going absolutely crazy with towers.. since when do we have 570 meter towers pop up, with no warning :nuts:
sadly, the design is lacking and seems rushed. But the height is just crazy

Where in Tianjin is this tower? So is this in Tianjin city or east of it, in the Binhai New Area?

Looks nice, but seems like its in a high-tech zone, just going to stand by itself, not as a part of a skyline. Tianjin really need to catch up on supertall construction, it's a huge city next to the coast and barely has any skyscrapers compared to Beijing, Dalian, or even Shijiazhuang.

It is u/c according to the press... If you want, just change it to "Prep" until we get some pics.
A ground breaking ceremony means nothing. In Dubai projects you have the ground breaking ceremony with all the big top guys sticking a shovel in the ground, then 6 months later the first excavator arrives.

So is this in Tianjin city or east of it, in the Binhai New Area? And if it's in the city, where in the city is it? NanJing Lu, another place in downtown, or outside of downtown?
Wow, I was waiting for you to post further info about this project, man :D

According to the articles I posted, the project is at 天津高新区. Do you know where is it? Never heard of that area, but I guess it is not in the city center, so I guess it is NOT the 500m+ project proposed in Nanjing Lu.

What a big surprise, huh? I bet you didn't expect you'll find out that your city is building China's tallest skyscraper when you got up this morning :D
