Wouldn't there be any formal news if there was such progress?

well, all they did was digging underground.. they should make "a firm foundation" so ground can holds 100 floors tower, i've been that site and they were digging very deeply and were constructing something like pipe lines underground

don't like this design at all...one of the worst skysrapers that is being built, far away from the quality of western skyscrapers or chineese. to bad, it could have been a really nice building, what a waste of money!

I actually prefer this style to that of western or chineese architecture for the most part, this one almost reminds me of something you'd see near the beach in Dubai.

Anyways, this is actually one of my favorites being built...
To each his own though. Everyone's got their prefrences.

Real crap, part of the wall protecting the hole has colapsed. This will cause some delay for sure

I don't wish to piss on anyones parade but I think all the excitement about this one being U/C really is premature. If you take a look at the render below there is clearly a low rise circular building in roughly the same position where we see the circular foundation in the construction pics above. In fact there has been no excavation at all on the part of the site where the tower is supposed to be. I think the low rise element is underway but see no evidence whatsoever that the tower is.
