I looked at the thread and it was in October 2010 that Ping An looked similar to this. Starting around pages 57, 58, 59. So almost three years ago.

Reaching ground level in 2014 is still quite possible because the foundation piling has already been done.

Nice tower! A little better than the World Lotte Center, but not Ping An.

Amazing project...

In China, they don't seem to care whether such a tall building is going to cast shadows on the people living nearby...

On the other hand, in China, they build buildings with plenty of space in between, as opposed to cities like New York where they pack buildings together like sardines!
