I feel like Wuhan is still missing an identity. It is getting really tall amazing towers now, but the surrounding areas of the towers all still seem to be under construction. the city needs some more streetlevel in the skyscraper areas.

Sadly I fear this is not going to happen anytime soon. Western people are soo oblivious and biased towards China, it's like 99 out of 100 people can't even name a chinese city besides Shanghai, Beijing and Hongkong. And they don't even care about it! When I tell poeple about the vast construction activity and the beautiful megatalls rising in China, they don't seem very interested at all and just comment on the smog and "child slavery". Yeah, we know, China has issues with that. But for god's sake there is so much more about this country other than that... how long will it take to break this closed mindset?

I can perfectly relate to this, but this seems to be a general issue of Chinese cities. I guess it just takes time. Rome wasn't built in one day, too. Or something like that

that's a general problem though. e.g. I cannot name two cities in Nigeria, although it is a pretty big country. You just know what you either inform yourself about or see in the news that you are looking at. With this forum as one of our news sources, we basically all have heard about any city that has a building over 200m in it, but in other areas we may also lack behind.

I guess I have to concur with this point of view. There is a lag between perception and reality . In effect most people's perceptions are formed from the mass media generally speaking isn't interested positive developments .
The Chinese have recently signed a series of bi lateral agreements with their media conterparts in various countries to publish on a monthly basis news or show programs from the major media portals in China like CCTV. That should help the situation somewhat.

I know, Wuhan may never be as well known as those three cities bit it can at least be somewhat known. I mean many westerners I've met don't know the capital in South Korea, and how often is Seoul mentioned in the west? Not much at least here in Europe. So I think Wuhan can reach to the levels of Seoul , that's the potential at least.

It is bit ridiculous for me that they don't know world top 2 rich city in the world.(top one is TOKYO megalopolis). maybe we still living in the era called the age of discovery!
btw not only wuhan but also most china cities is amazing. they very historical and growth very fast. i think china city follow USA's city evolution path.

greenland are not very liked over in in Australia. after 2 years, our biggest builder Brookfield Multiplex have walked away from Sydneys tallest building Greenland centre, due to ongoing disagreements. so now Greenland are trying to find a partner to help build the 70storey tower. fss

It's odd that one side of the tower is getting its cladding while the other side is the bare concrete - I wonder why?
