I think that the speed of this tower will be as same as Ping An.

hardly possibe to build any faster than that
What took so long on Ping'an were the piling works, the long break after the raft was poured and the basement floors. Greenland was already faster in 2 of these steps, and I'm sure the basement won't take that long as well

Depends on how many cranes there will be, I guess. There will be more, right?

And also Zhongnan is the tallest among the U/C Chinese Supertalls, though it was a sleek and magnificent design.

Anyway, These huge metal frames kinda reminds me of Ping An IFC.
