The tower's not even located in Greenland. And Greenland doesn't have any skyscrapers.

Nanjing's proximity to Shanghai has actually meant that the city is seen as an attractive inland economic centre (both by domestic and especially foreign investors) partly because it is directly linked to Shanghai via rail, road and the Yangze River. The two cities complement one another. Shanghai serves as China's gate to the world, while Nanjing functions as east-central China's logistics nucleus. Also, Nanjing is the capital of Jiangsu province, which has the 3rd largest GDP in the country. The city is notable for having the largest inland river port in China and is one of the cultural, education and indeed early industrial centres of the country. Plus it was the capital of numerous Chinese dynasties as well as the KMT's Republic of China until 1949... Indeed, the city has always been an important urban centre.

Holy!! I never seen cladding progress so quickly, or maybe I'm seeing the other side to the side I've been seeing recently. How tall is it now out of 450 metres?

Do the cranes for this project lift one piece of glass by glass to install them in floors or in batches? incase of SWFC they lift one by one cos of their tremendous weight...
