Calling the Forbidden City "an ancient palace" is a bit like calling the Giza Pyramids "some old polihedrons" or the Parthenon "those columns on the hill".

Beijing CBD is in eastern part of the city (Chaoyang District), not in the middle.

Forbidden City and Tian'anmen Square are right in the middle.

Indeed, very good to see it rising! It also seems to be moving slightly faster now- the core looks to have jumped two levels in the last update.

Yepp, it's really satisfying to watch so many supertalls rise simultaneously
