Well that is a confusing article. China has decades ahead with rapid urbanization and thereafter less intense urbanization. There will also always be relocation of people and jobs to better places and China is a big country with a lot. Current quality of the housing stock in china is very low. Current location of towns is indequate. And don't forget the big stimulus that the government usually provide areas of interest.

We have heard this before. Ordos was a hotspot of criticism has now since l Jazeera made a report about Kangbashi as a lost ghost town of roughly 30000 people. Now it has at least 153.000 residents and rising housing prices. However, the reporters that covered these "ghost towns" painted out a picture of lost places that wont get much different in a near future.

All in all, there is no sign of an end of the Chinese skyscraper age. As long as there is no severe economic meltdown or some large-scale-bad-news, China will continue to build skyscrapers.

exactly, in reference to Ordos and Kangbashi; they seemed bent on emphasizing on the emptiness but forgotten their own cities lay in desolate ruins for centuries during the dark ages. white people always wanna be tryin it smh

Oh yeah those white people from Al Jazeera, they forget their desolate ruins in Qatar...

Yes, an intelligent way to criticise people for their skin colour doesn't exist, it's inherently stupid, but getting all confused about it and talking about dark ages in white Qatar doesn't exactly make it better. Come on, no race stuff, it doesn't enhance the quality of the forum in any way.

um.. afaik, Ordos is located in northern China and the dark ages were time and context specific to a geographic area inhabited by Caucasians mainly, soo..

I guess because of the change in shape in the core, there needed to be a new crane that is going to fit up against the side of the smaller core at the highest levels.

I'm trying to figure out if its going the route of 636m with the way the core has slimmed or if its 606m. I'll have to look at the floorplan again

I presume they are building the last core section stage, judging by the render

Wuhan Greenland Center is an attractive skyscraper.That building is one of my favorite tall building.

I have not posted any photo of Wuhan Greenland Center.I am not living in China because I can't post my own photos of this project.

But I could find a photo source,I can post photos of this building.

When I post photos in this website first, i post the photo on Flickr. Then I post it on this website.

I have posted many photos of projects in South Korea and Sri Lanka.

So,I expect to post some photos of this project.
