The whole area looks to be clearly under construction in the first picture in the above update. I think it is time to move this thread over to the U/C supertall section.

I tend to disagree, the spot where the supertall will stand seems not busy yet.

comparing these two pictures from the first post and one of the latest updates:
http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...580248_002.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/R1broEh.jpg

the picture was taken out of the tba building and you can see its neighbour, so it is pretty easy to see where the main tower is. the layout of the main tower is also visible since it is angled unlike the side towers. it is the plot right behind the ramp on the right side. there is no crane yet, still looks U/C too me, but a closer picture would certainly be nice.

I placed the proper statement in the request for moving threads section over 10 days ago. Still no response from any moderator so I don't know what they are waiting for. I guess they are not moving fast because this building is in Dongguan.

you mean, they are afraid to move the thread 'prematurely'?

Well we both know they have made that mistake in the past. I would even say a couple supertall threads in the U/C section now should probably not be there. Mostly U.S. buildings get moved the quickest. I know that if this building was in the U.S. then it would no doubt already be in the U/C section.

The whole complex is U/C as can be seen in the pictures so there is no question it should be moved.

I think it's zorg who manages all chinese projects here, and it's up to him if a thread gets moved or not. He did an excellent and reliable job for many years and if he decided it is to early to move the thread we should respect that

Plus, I'm with him in this case, because all we got are 3 pictures of medicore quality which do not clearly show what is going on at the supertall's site.
For those who can't follow me: The supertall is located in the very bottom left of the 2nd and 3rd picture, next to the ramp.
I for myself can't say what is going on, the quality of the pictures does not allow to zoom in. What I can tell is that there is no heavy machinery, such as piling machines or cranes visible. The only case where I'd consider this to be U/C was if they are excavating the pile holes by hand (as we have seen at other chinese constructions before). But since we can't prove it, the status remains unclear -> thread should not be moved.

Too many threads were moved for no reason and had to be brought back. We will move it only when are 100% sure it is u/c. No need to hurry...

Checked them all, but the photographer was standing in the wost possible position. The main tower is pretty much the only thing we can't see in these shots

One more thing. I took a look at the pics from mid-September and the longer I stare the more it looks like there could be actually piling works going on at the main tower, opposed to my initial thoughts. Then again, we can't move threads based on random guesses...

So interesting to see so many skyscrapers going up that are "around" the height of the Sears Tower yet not much attention is paid to. Such a great time to be alive to see these go up!
