2023 is too late i think. Pilling took quite long because of the difficult underground but the core should rise at a normal chinese speed.

Unfortunately the workers are at ground level and look at their pals working at "The Pants".

Seeing how they must be at break all day long trying to take second place in "longest ever super tall construction-contest" after North Korea I doubt they'll finish this one in a decade.

But I hope I'm wrong.... But maybe the demand for office space in Suchow doesn't whip developers to pay overtime

Looks like less activity than before, is that bad signs or just because of the current construction phase?

Hard to see how this one will be done in five years. It will require a lot more action and progress on the site before you can really even make an accurate guess as to how long it will take.

I guess just the current phase of construction.

Which big hole?

It would have been an awesome update if there had been "just a big hole".

Again, I would say, what big hole? And what netting? The netting on other buildings surrounding the site?

And if this project is being built similar to most other tall supertalls in China, then there should be a circular concrete ring appearing at some point that will outline the actual site.
This project is indeed unfortunately slow.

I don't think we will see this typical grid here because they use a different technique. Instead of pouring the retaining walls level by level while digging the hole, they do it ahead of the excavation. One reason for this could be the relatively small size of the plot, and the fact that the surrounding buildings are already under construction. There is simply not enough space for the common technique. The condition of the ground could also be a reason.

As for the construction pace, it's probably too early to judge. Many projects have been slow during piling and excavation stage and amazed us with insane speed later on.

It looks like drilling and generally making some kind of watertight wall with bentonite. When the wall is ready, they start digging a big hole for basement, I hope soon

Shouldn't take long. I think we'll have a hole in June.

Hey, at least it's not like the Al Attar Tower in Dubai which has been under construction for over a decade, and still has a lot to do.
