Probably because it's better than normal China quality? (Oooh what a bitch I am )

Also if you look at the site photos you'll see that up to now, 95% of the construction effort has been on the basements and setting up the other buildings etc. You should see this start to accelerate soon as the footprint for each floor across the whole site decreases.

thanks chad for elevations ect. really love it when i get this info. makes my diagrams that much better. ive scaled tower and it measures 60m wide at base, 63m at centre and 45m at top. its basically another Jin Mao type constriction with top section hollow with atrium. fantastic.
cheers

60 meters is a pretty huge floorplate. Reminds me of ICC.

blue roof buildings are temporary construction workers dwelling houses. They will be disassembled when projects are done.
