The third big trust belt is U/C at the moment. The cranes do not jump up yet.

Great building, great pics!

I wonder what those people in the last foto think about it.

Is the ordinary chinese a skyscraperfan, or is it more like a government thing?

most chinese in my experience do not really like skyscrapers in my experience. But unlike Europe, they don't mind skyscrapers, so they won't demonstrate against them

The assumption he is making is that the old buildings that are shown in the last photo to be abandoned will most likely be demolished in the near future. It is a fair assumption to make.

I like this tower. Its sleek, elegant, has everything a modern design needs. It´s wind breaking elements are integrated well into the design, the crown has a coherent look with the rest of the building, and the tri foot shape of the footprint was originally used to create this icon.

The seventh, counted from ground floor (just under the first core reduction).

Another core reduction will come soon, or is already happening..

How tall is it now.? Its huge compared to everything around it. Why do the ppl not like the construction of tall buildings? Maybe it's because they are more concerned with the building of houses and affordable living quarters? Not sure of the poverty level in inner city Wuhan or any other Chinese cities.
