maybe we are not very far away from that now

The diggers are still struggling with the outside walls of the lawn building.
Sometimes you can see trucks taking away the waste. In the middle of the picture between the red mobile crane and the small red building you can see the used steel
they seperated from the concrete of the walls.
Work went along all weekend.

Nobody knows but it's not unlikely it will break ground this year

those red machines are for piling. I guess they make some tests first to find out what kind of piles they have to use and how deep they have to put them.

still had to post that picture here of the fortune plaza, lately the weather and the air is nice just 37 degrees is too hot.
at the right edge you can see a little the new building of bank of communications.Lately not much going on there.
To the left of it in the back, the building under construction is bank of Jiangsu.
Lately also going slowly. Perhaps all of them have money problems.
Left to it is Bank of China, bankrupt since years.
The green buildings also a bank, not sure which one.
The white infront of it is agricaltural bank of china, this one was the first building there, around 12 years ago.
The low buildings in the front have some awesone restaurants, the food is really great but also they will be destroyed for some taller buildings.

That picture is around 10 years old, our building site is left bottom.
