Here's a translated news article about the project. It reads like the proposal is only the 6 story "mall". Maybe it is planned in phases?

That's just south of Bellaire along the feeder for Beltway 8 north.  If you could pan that rendering left, you'd see the First American National Bank building, which is about 12 or 14 floors.  So, yes, this area may become the "downtown" of Chinatown.

More details on what may be called Asia City Plaza in Houston Chinatown:

Mostly same details as above.


 

Xu Wenzhong, head of the Hilton Hotel in Chinatown, officially publicly announced the construction of Asian City Plaza in the Asian shopping district at a press conference in mid-April. The first phase of the project will be built. 6 storey commercial building. The first floor is a shop, the fifth and sixth floors will be used as office floors, and the three-story building in the middle will be a parking lot, which is convenient for first-floor and top-level users. In order to ensure user safety, all incoming vehicles will be closely monitored and recorded. Enter and exit the license plate number (Xu Wenzhong).
 

In the current situation of the hard-to-find shop in Dun Huang Plaza, the Asian City Project will continue to provide entrepreneurial venues for entrepreneurs with lofty ideals, and also add more business opportunities to the already prosperous Chinese city. After the completion of the first phase of the Asian City project, it will be connected with the surrounding Dun Huang Plaza, McDonald's and Hengfeng Bank, so that the moving line will be unimpeded (Zhong Wenzheng Li Shuzhen).
 

Xu Wenzhong said that in order to expand the Chinese business sector, the construction of Asia City hopes to attract more ethnic groups into Chinatown and accelerate the prosperity of the entire Asian business district (Xu Wenzhong Ye Hongzhi).
 

The first phase of the Asian City project will be sold by 48 units, ranging from 1,288 square feet of 370,000 square meters to 2,608 square feet of more than 990,000 US dollars, suitable for all types of enterprises to enter, and will start at 10 am on May 4th.

Phase II is the proposed Asia City Plaza East Tower at 33 floors (estimated height of 438.85 ft), and Phase III, the Asia City Plaza West Tower also at 33 floors (estimated height of 438.85 ft) or vice verse depending which they choose first.

Designed by architect Wen Zhongzheng. As mentioned his work contains the elegance of the literati, the innovative and harmonious design style, and the appearance and the interior as a whole give a sense of harmony and comfort. With that said, 33 floors would be the ideal number as it sounds alike "double" life, as literaly translated growth or reproduction (of wealth).

In the 1980s Japan bought Real Estate in Los Angeles, they were considered the smartest guy in the room "American's think 5 minutes ahead, Japanese think 5 decades ahead."

 

I always hoped Chinese investors would build and buy in Houston, we had Yao Ming for one thing, but has anything happened and why not?

 

The lead developer and his wife are Taiwanese immigrants and Houstonians for decades.  In the 1980s they lived in Ponderosa Forest on FM1960W.

Such a smart move. They'll be getting a lot of foot traffic from Dun Huang Plaza. That plaza has to have some of the biggest nightlife, from clubs and hang out places, outside the inner loop. So packed on the weekends that it's quite difficult to find parking and it feels like there's a new milk tea or some other restaurant there every other month.

Just a half block east from Dun Huang Plaza is the BELLAIRE FOOD STREET which is completed and scheduled to be open very soon -  https://bellairefoodstreet.com
It is an almost 2 acres lot being build on. The area around Bellaire Blvd and Beltway 8 is going to be even more congested and good for business.
