Yes there's probably less office space, but most of the project is residential and much denser than almost all American cities. This project isn't even in "downtown" Guiyang.

This has got to be the largest construction project on Earth right now! 18.3 million sqm is unbelievably massive.

Just mind blowing. Any idea on the number of workers involved in all of this? Must be in the thousands... tens of thousands wouldn't surprise me.
