Aha, I was wondering what this building was! I cycled past it the other day and got some pictures of it, without knowing anything about it.
I'll upload them in a while once I've sorted through them - they've started cladding on the lower floors.

Anyone who has the concept for the building's interiors (e.g., office/production area and others)?

Thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing more progress on this one. Thankfully, I was curious enough to take those photos as I was going past - I didn't have a clue what building it was until I came here this morning and saw this thread!

You're welcome - thank you for appreciating them!

From Tian Ze Lu (north-west of the 3rd ring road) earlier today:

I'm off to visit Wuhan, Zhangjiajie and Changsha for a few days, so no more updates from me until the middle of next week.

Superman, have a nice trip!

Wuhan's Jingwu Spicy Duck Neck/精武鸭脖 is one of its kind, you should give it a try! Although it might sound horrible to westerners.

Take some photos from the construction site of Wuhan Center if you could! The project is not far away from the most famous Jingwu Spicy Duck Neck Restaurant in Hankou if i wasn't wrong.

Thank you very much, I will!

I'm always up for trying new food!
I'm not a big fan of very spicy food...although I do really like duck (Peking Duck... ) so on this occasion, I might give it a go!

I will try and find the construction site - I don't know exactly in Wuhan we're staying, but we get into Wuchang station tomorrow morning (we're taking the overnight train) so we will have some time to explore properly. If I see any other interesting buildings under construction, I will get photos of them and try to work out what they are.
