Chongqing is currently one of the fastest-growing megalopolises on the world. Every year, between 500 000 and 1 million people are moving into the city. An average of 70 000 square meters are daily completed which corresponds to 4 new residential high-rise building every day. The Jiefangbei peninsula, Chongqing downtown, includes more than 300 skyscrapers on less than 9 km2, that means one of the highest tower density in Asia.
Today, with a population of about 10 million, Chongqing could be described as “the biggest city you have never heard of”.
