ive seen overtime that alot of architects/devlopers missquote heights and get them confused with "sea level" heights. happens al the time is there a chance its Rl458m? would greenland plaza be only 8m above sea level?

the scaffolding looks very different from the ones used in the west.

Are they special scaffolding used in China or what?

Well, bamboo is very common in China, if that's what you mean.

bamboo is very useful,
its strong (obviously important)
and its very light at the same time, can just be handed from one person to the other while hanging half outside the building. Ive seen it being done .

yep, bamboo is preferred because its actually stronger than steel, but lightweight and grows in abundance (some species grow 6ft a day), but importantly is flexible in the high winds and earth tremors.
