Well, I'm not sure, but I think it is. The hole I took pictures of looks like the right location according to renders.

So, I'm still somewhat confused as to what is being built, but I'm starting to see that it is the secondary towers' foundation. I'm not sure why they put the workers houses on top of the spot where they need to start digging though.
















What do you guys think?

That's the height above sea level.

Weird that the floors don't continue up. All that last 100m is just architectural detail?

So glad to see the secondary towers are already above ground level. Dalian is normally the fastest.

Very nice unique design. The first one was 1000x better though.
