Does anyone know if this tower is a bit outside the city like Sky City or if it is closer to a populated area?

no idea, i tried to find broad town on google maps, but although the address for T30 is clearly stated on Skyscrapercenter, google seems to put me quite far away in a foresty area, either the maps are really outdated or the locations are wrongly saved. can't even find the pyramid headquarters.

I think I might have found it,seems to be very close to the broad group pyramid.Coordinates are 113° 7'23.86"O, 28°13'8.77"N in google earth, quite far from sky city coordinates which are 28°19′14″N 112°53′51″E

The only thing that is shame about this kind of project is that I don't expect that there will be a lot of updates, so this could be half done by the time we get another picture.

I actually hope this method of construction doesn't catch on generally- I like that supertalls take awhile to be built- it gives you a chance to appreciate the construction.

There's so little info about this project!
Is someone looking in those chinese forums I have seen some time around here in the Sky City One thread?
I guess the company don't want this project to be followed by the public until it's finished, just in case in ends up being unsuccesful.

yeah the gaoloumi thread already has like a hundred pages. weird to have so few information. broad likes to throw dates around when they try to finish stuff, but for this one i havn't heard that.

and the thread actually stopped in september, currently the thread is locked. wondering if the project went on hold at that time and there wasn't more updates after that

What a surprise, I guess BSB just has to do this to prove that the construction method is sound for a supertall.

i still have a good feeling with it. though we'll probably see more delays. the dates they gave us were a bit too optimistic

This should be halfway up now if it follows the construction speed sky city was supposed to have (220 stories /90days =2.44 floor per day). Construction start was 29th November.That was 21 days ago (21*2.44)=roughly 52 stories. The real construction speed is probably even higher
