Damn, that's brown mud!

Seriously, though, what's with all the "Stating the obvious" here? I mean:
"One of the massive supertall in China." Gee! Thanks for reminding us! I totally forgot this building was more than 300 metres tall and located in China! What a constructive post!
"They've got quite a ways to go". Really? I would never have guessed, based on the picture only. Thanks for clearing this up.

(End rant)

EDIT: Adding some fluff to my post so it isn't totally hypocritical.

I was really fascinated by that guy carrying those... umm... hard to tell... across the site (to the left in the picture). Look at his size compared to the footprint of the building. He's so minuscule compared to the site, yet he's helping getting the building up, he's almost alone, using nothing but manpower to carry some vital(?) piece of the structure to its place. Really illustrating that even though this is a huge building, its construction is dependant on lone people doing lots of small tasks. The building would never be realized without people carrying shoulderfuls of stuff from A to B. One tiny step at the time, this giant rises.

Is there any news on the 404m tower? Hopefully, it'll be similarly scaled up to 434m!

So the above hole pictured is for the 1,300+ foot tower and the picture at the top of the page is for the 2,000+ foot tower? I believe this is correct.

No, the above hole is for the midrises next to the 636m:



There's no progress on the 404m tower as of now.

midrises? If by "midrises" you mean the round dome then you're correct since this is where the pictured hole is.
