The jealous threw out fake notice to thwart the third crane but to no avail. AS+GG's masterpiece is intact.

Wuhan Greenland does have its design root from Chicago Lake Point, which was by Adrian Smith while a design partner at SOM. Here's the Architect presenting the evolution of the three-legged design at CTBUH 2011. Kingdom Tower, another three-legged and even taller, is also by Smith.

500m means only 136m left,considering the whole tower is 636m tall,136m is about 21%,but the pic shows the left part apparently far more than 21%.i think still about 180m to go.

Maybe so. Im thinking maybe 25 to 30% of the total height is left from the top of the core... that's why I said maybe a little less. I am too impatient though. Just can't wait to see this complete or at least structurally topped out.

Very similar skin to Burj Dubai, also by Adrian Smith. I can also see similarities in this clad with Pelli's Petronas Towers.
