Gorgeous, the new picture diagram look more attractive in real life, my guess is that the foundations are being prepared at time and date of when the construction will be built all at once

Changsha may not be well-known outside China, but it is a significant city. Whether it would be well served by a high-rise of this magnitude is a different question.

Does anyone have a map of Changsha showing railway stations, airport, Changsha metro and the Sky City site?

It still does. The trains Beijing-Chengdu take 28...31 hours because no high speed railway goes there.

Xian-Chengdu takes 13...17 hours, Zhengzhou-Chengdu 19...26 hours, Wuhan-Chengdu 16...25 hours.

yes i know, i took the train only few months ago, but that will change when the highspeed rail to guangzhou goes online, because you can basically go the highspeed route to Changsha and then over chongqing to chengdu, shall be lot faster than now
