When will they start hiring people to fill those buildings? I want a high paying job with a nice office in Xiangluowan.

Progress is looking great!

I think Shanghai would still be more iconic due to the fact that it was built bit by bit, although a large chunk was built all at once. It was also built during the beginning of China's rise as an economic power, hence has historical significance.

This place on the other hand lacks that significance plus we don't really know what the names of the buildings are!!

But some of the buildings already started the cladding stage...

I just can't stop asking to myself where're people who will live and work here! I mean you can't just fill in a city with inhabitants from nowhere lol I know the population of China is enormous and I now the country's living moments of outstanding growth of it's economy, but still.....this is breathtaking!! Even more than Dubai.

Just WOW.

This district could very well rival Manhattan in the about 20 years. T&F Guangdong will be taller than 1WTC and the ESB based on roof height and that is not to say they won't build another tower taller in Xianglouwan in coming years.

I'd imagine they put Lujiazui's reflection in the Xiangluowan rendering to signify that this is the new Pudong?

I think people are what makes a skyscraper truly come to life. So when I see an empty skyscraper with no people in it, it's like it doesn't have a soul.

Its a shame most of them are boxes, but I guess the cladding and height differences will make up for it.

Will they have shopping centers and pedestrian streets, I really like ped streets...
