About the huge new tower crane on top: I wonder why they can't just re-erect the blue crane from a few floors below, but have to bring up all the pieces of the new red crane from the ground?

It is strange. After Chinese New Year, this building has grown with nine floors of the core and eight floors of the perimeter for six months. These rumors for 500 meters max height seriously disturb me. Again airports restrictions. http://bbs.cnhubei.com/thread-4360974-1-1.html

The first core jump after CNY and today, 40 meters taller.

Translating this damning document:



Wuhan Sub-Provincial Urban Management Committee

Executive Letter

To Wuchang District Urban Management Committee:

On 20 July 2017, Wuhan Urban Planning Department carried out field survey on the Greenland Center project on 750 Heping Ave. The project's height exceeded the limit that was set on the construction halt order on 14 Jan 2017. Specifics are as follow: the building's core structure is currently at 469.7m above sea level (445.3m above ground level), formwork platform at 494.7m above sea (470.3m above ground), tower crane when resting at 510.6m above sea (486.2m above ground), tower crane when highest jib at 530.6m above sea (506.2m above ground). According to CAAC CSB and Hubei Province Supervision Department, the height of everything in the Greenland Center project must not exceed 500m from sea level (this includes spires, antennas, tower cranes, etc).

As per the memorandum of understanding with the Wuhan City Government on 16 Jan 2017, we ask that you take this matter seriously, that you take a hands on approach to properly enforce these rules, that you strengthen oversight and complete these following tasks:
1. Immediately order Greenland Holdings Corp's Wuhan Greenland Binjiang Property subsidiary to stop construction on the project, and have them carry out adjustments to the tower cranes according to the findings from the flight path risk assessment report, that their height do not exceed 500m.

.........

This is the BEST megatall!
Has the Architect been misled to design for 636m?

When height must now be limited at 500 m, somebody must have been sleeping during preparation or execution of this project.


How can this happen in this late stage?
Seems reason enough for firing some people and put them into jail, for such mega mistake and wasting so many millions of money.

But the question is it really the developers fault!! this happened before in China though ... could it be the government wasn't clear on height restriction when construction started??

Who's fault it is, is indeed unclear.
Somebody must have approved the original 600+ plan...

According chinese members on gaoloumi, The new crane is raised to 530 m. And what about CTF Wuhan if they reduce Greenland?
CR in Naning has a similar fate. High between 390-402 meters. (445m ) Current height is around 250 m.

If they really have to stick to the 500 m rules, a complete redesign of the top/crown will be necessary.
To fit in the total building's shape, as constructed until now.


But: I expect most steel parts for the original are already manufactured...?
Or in preparation.
