I doubt that a company like Greenland that made a profit of 965 million dollars in 2011 would go bankrupt on a building that costs 750 million dollars.

Greenland Group is founded and based in Shanghai, and is owned by the Shanghai government. You think they haven't analysed the market conditions in those cities before putting up supertalls in them?

That hole looks huge, much larger, from a ground level viewpoint.

Cameraman is standing at the edge of the foundation ring supports and there are 20 to 30 metres of foundation behind as he stands at the edge.
