Chenggong District (Chinese: 呈贡区; pinyin: Chénggòng Qū) is a city district under the jurisdiction of Kunming, Yunnan, China. Chenggong, formerly a county and situated on east bank of the Dian Lake, had its status changed to a district of Kunming in 2011.
Chenggong is the chief zone for the expansion of the city of Kunming, almost a 20-minute drive away. It is the site of the new Kunming City Hall, and new campuses for Yunnan University and Yunnan Normal University.
Early in the district's redevelopment, much of the newly constructed housing in Chenggong was unoccupied and was reportedly one of the largest ghost towns in Asia in 2012, in a similar situation to Ordos City and the New South China Mall. It has slowly become occupied, however, in more recent years as Central Kunming has become overcrowded. Some Government departments moved to Chenggong in 2012, and a subway line connecting Chenggong to the city centre opened in 2013. By 2017, the district had become home to many more offices and residents with more redevelopment still on the horizon.
