The newest addition to Chongqing's skyline is a mega project of eight high-rises, six of which are connected by a skybridge. The Raffles City Chongqing looms over a bend in the Jialing River, where its dark-green waters meet the muddy currents of the Yangtze. The tower is 73-storey tall and is part of a project that costs 4.8 billion U.S. dollars. Prices for a 98-square-meter one-bedroom unit at Raffles City starts at four million yuan (580,000 U.S. dollars), and developers say three-quarters of the project's 1,400 residential units have been sold.
