Is it possible to remedy the inadequacies?

Until I see an official source quoted, these will remain just rumors to me.

What'd you expect from an office statement?

A team from the owner's side working with the main contractor is trying to work out a better solution. The designed capacity of fresh air was quite enough, but narrowly. But they later found that it is hard to reach that capacity because of engineering problems, the ventilation pipes have to make excessive winds and turns to fit the structure, that reduces the efficency of the air flow and may produce unexpected noises.

This building turned out so nicely, not at all like the "waste basket" look people said it would be.

presumable by end of July

I was told that complaints from citizens were just numourous that the administration had decided to turn their deaf ears on - in order to get through the toughest times as they described.

What an awesome looking tower. I love the transparent glass.

Too bad the street level looks like a war zone. I can't wait for the park. That area really needs some trees and grass.

less than 20 square meters, for a whole standard floor. Visiting the toilet may not be a good experience. it could be decorated as luxury looking and say nothing for spaciousness.

I think you have some kind of fixation with the services in this tower, all of your posts are about them. Do you have some kind of economic interests in real estate in Guangzhou by any chance? Anyway you keep on omitting posting sources for what you claim.
