I can't insert a picture, but the building side remind me of the game "Finding Waldof". How many workers can you spot? 3?

To me that is far too cheap and a good indication this project will NEVER be completed.
Only time will prove if I am right.
Who's the mod?

I've looked through threads and seen people banned for reasons I did not see coming.....

Why on earth is a comment about a mayor in a linked video deleted?

Especially when the video and the other comments are there.... I am puzzeled.

Anyone????

All this fantastical off topic crap should be deleted. There is 0 chance whatsoever of this project being cancelled, none whatsoever.

Excellent! Assuming there are no hold-ups, I would guess that this will be rising by fall.

Fall? Lol? It is already at ground level so just a matter of weeks until it starts to rise above the ground

Steel will be above ground soon that's true. But until it's rising in normal speed with climbing formworks it will take several months probably.

The foundation/underground work always takes the longest on any building.

With these latest updates, I imagined how this project is huge.

Most large structures these days that have a basement start off with a massive round hole like that.
Ping An (small hole), Shanghai tower (medium hole, similar to Greenland Centre), Goldin 117 (holy crap HUGE hole!) all had round holes.
The reason is physics. A circle is the best shape for keeping open a large hole. The holes are usually square, notice the heavy duty framework in the corners.
If the circle structures weren't built, then the middles of the sides would likely slump inwards like this
