I'd seen the render before, but did realize it was this building until I finally looked in this thread. They're actually building it! Very cool.

I think it's meant to look like it shouldn't stand up so that you can stand underneath that huge overhang and feel a little bit scared! It's certainly a building that'll make you go "WOW"!

Because that date is the opening date of Olympics 2008.
PS: Yea I agree it is a crucial update. We finally see something rising up from that huge hole.

nice update. sure is wonderful to slowly see this icon rise.
1 question i wanted to ask: why is it that high rises in beijing (WTC and CCTV especially) utilize steel sections for the core portion and not like Burj Dubai or others whihc have reinforced concrete for the core? is there a particular reason for this?

Yes, very probably! beijing is just 260KM from Tanshan, the latter is known for its unprecedented disaster in 1976.
