Another giant rises, amongst a sea of dwarves. Are those workers accommodation in the background, surely they can't be knocking those down?

You can not escape the impression that the building is created in the mud. In fact, in the immediate area is very much the old five-story buildings.
The same is true in most parts of China. The exceptions are cities such as Shanghai and Beijing.
So best to come to China for some 20 - 15 years old when they do have a large part of the investment.

this building is supposed to be finished by 2017 and the site looks quite busy already, seems to be a realistic date.

Just my guess, but probably not directly yet. I would bet they are working on the slurry walls currently...

we havn't heard about an official height increase yet. If it stays this height it will not however. Shanghai Tower is at 300m already and will be taller when finished.
