Basically, to put it in terms kunming tiger will understand: Tearing down Rome for modern skyscrapers would be like tearing down the Great Wall for modern skyscrapers.

Not that it's really worth talking about a comment made by Elster, I'm quite sure he/she was trolling as usual.

What in Rome will outlast Ping An? Are you sure you're not trolling?

Western civilization?

The Catholic Church?

The mafia?

Pizza?

Ping An rules but chances are that only The Great Wall and The Pyramids stand when ancient Rome is forgotten.

This is said with respect to all.

Drop the discussion. There is an excellent thread on building an ancient castle in another section. It would make sense to continue there.

You can't argue about personal preferences. .

I was at an age when I would preferred to demolish the entire medieval part of my city (not many in Europe that still have a good portion of it's defensive walls) and build commies in it's place.

Maybe is the same age...

so phase 1 with the main tower is proposed to start in 2014, doesn't that mean that demolition needs to be underway soon or was the proposed starting date just wishful thinking by that time?

These village redevelopment projects always get delayed significantly, minimum of at least 1-2 years, but sometimes can be canceled too. Have to negotiate with thousands of villagers with all their individual buildings.

My prediction: This will be a big deal in 2017-2020, but the prep is going to take a loooooooong time, just gotta have patience.

yes, i was not expecting anything to start rising soon, just hoping that maybe deals are partly done already and at least a few plots would start clearing this year, but probably not
