The vertical line of red boxes on the soon-to-be core is the crane.

Is there a floor diagram or something? With this design I am wondering how the columns are placed, if there even are any. I'm asking because ZZ-II brought up Ping An, and I'm really curious how different this construction will be from that one.

Are the chickens part of the inauguration luncheon or are they to be incorporated in the concrete slab?

One of the most massive project that I've ever seen. Looking forward for the rise of this huge project.

They look like billboards.

Another question is, what will happen at that demolition site nearby? Hopefully something to complement this beauty.
