The JFK-conspiracy strikes again:

The answer might be the grass noll (small hill)

There are renders (page 1) + pics in #47 showing something between the hill and the supertall. All renders show the supertall right at the water with the other construction between it and the hill.

My guess is it's construction of a lower building.... But it would help to know where the water i instead of guessing.... Not trolling just looking at what's available.

This forum is a great way to learn Chinese Geography. Every city I've never heard of is getting a 100+ storey tower!

i haven't heard of this city before! yet it is getting a 490m building

also i have seen that some projects which have the word tower in it are actually buildings. why is that?

Now in kanye's last post it can be seen how thin the perimeter columns are. There is a concrete core, though.

the steel parts and columns are too thin for a 490m tower in my eyes.

though if i look at this pic it just can be the main tower:



hopefully the height hasn't been decreased or anything.

If I lived in the area or were visiting, I would be tempted to walk up an ask somebody what they're building.

"Hey guys, what are you building?"

It´s nice to see rising a tower with this height... Bit the design... Too plain for such a supertall.

Can't we just email the contractor or the developer and ask them?
Or even the architect, they should know if what they designed is actually being built.

5 days ago on gaoloumi:

九龍倉vs新鴻基:"确实挺慢的啊,今年年底不知道能不能突破200+?" (the building lately is really slow, can it break the 200m mark by the end of the year?)

yesterday in reply to him:

charleszh31: "这栋只是副楼,158而已。" (that's just the 158m tall side tower)
九龍倉vs新鴻基:"那470米的主楼开工了吗?" (so has the main tower started construction yet? note: on gaoloumi the thread title still has the old height of 470m in the thread title. hard to say which one is final considering the old render seems to solve the riddle of why this tower is so small)
charleszh31: "没有。。。那是二期的事。" (no... it'll be built in second phase)

[note that my chinese is not that great, so if i made a mistake translating please correct me.]

also another render popped up showing just one side-tower, which however is a bit taller than the two lowrises and might fit to what is currently rising:



note that these renders were posted far before the "final renders" on the first page of the thread on gaoloumi. so might be that we assumed a newer design was final, when the old one now actually is final. if we can get pictures from a bit further away so we can compare the distance to water we can confirm which one is the case.

also note charleszh31 is one of the users in the thread providing pictures, so he might have a bit more insight in where he took the pictures (further away from the river) and therefor knows that it is just the side tower.

I always thought it was a total mistake moving this thread to the U/C forum. Check my lists, I still list it as "ground works"

ed, the user making the black and white chinese construction updates also had it as prep still. we just didn't know what it was, but with this different render and that other highrise there it seems now obvious that it is that side tower that we didn't know existed.
