I still like ST more, but this one is definitely on the 2nd place together with Pinang Tower.

The great thing is that in just a couple of years we will be able to walk up to both and compare for ourselves!

But seriously how long you can drill for supports etc? This project is in prep more than a year now. I wouldn't be surprised if those rigs are really for foundation. Which would be good news of course since after quick digging (couple of months) they could just pour the slab and star building this beast. I say those rigs are for foundation and we will see pouring of concrete slab around january/february 2013. If I'm right I will get free beer

That would mean 700m+. But i don't think that will happen

they raised the height already to beat shanghai tower, i could see at least another hop possible to top ping'an. all other buildings that are 700m like the suzhou one are in earlier stages, so the greenland building would still become the countries tallest if the height is raised by "only" another 30m.

Oh so my guess for pouring of the slab in February is probably correct or close to correct. I guess we can expect digging anytime now.

Btw do you know how many underground floors this tower is going to have?
