DO YOU WANT SOME CONSTRUCTION UPDATES FROM BEIJING ?!!

This are the tallest skyscrapers under construction in Beijing
[IMG]http://i2.************/sytm6r.jpg[/IMG]

Do you want to see some recent u/c pics of them?

I am sure you want. But you must do something for me.

Don`t always ask what other can do for you, this time it`s your turn. Proove that you are really a skyscraper fan.

I will be in Beijing in 7 days. I will take the u/c pics and i will share them with everyboddy for free, like i always do.

You ask now why i need you? It`s very simple. I don`t know the location of every construction site. Search in the web ask in other forums go to the homepages of the developer,... (use your brain ). I don`t have enough free time to do this.

If you find the location of a skyscraper under construction i will try to take some pics.
Deal?

I post you this map. If you know the location of a skyscraper make a cross with MSPAINT and upload the pic again on www.************

Keep in mind that the Chinese regime do not appreciate foreigners taking pictures or filming around their cities, so be carefull.

Eh? Last time I was in Tian'anmen Square, everyone, foreigners included were taking pictures! Including me because I'm a blonde Westerner

Beijing is an amazing city and I cannot comprehend the sheer amount of development that Beijing and Shanghai is undergoig and will undergo in the next ten years and beyond...

Oh, in that case I want updates from the CCTV Building. I want to see how they're gonna get that thing built. Part of the building seems to defy gravity.

So if we can get regular updates on the CCTV building, I would be delighted.

So you should help me to find the location of the construction site.

Would be great if anyone living in Beijing could post some update foto's.
And I can tell from my own experience that there is no problem at all with filming and taking pictures in cities.

I have the same problem with mapping the new buildings. Most of them located I think at the 3rd and 4th ringway. Would be great to see the projects in the map.

Tian'anmen square is a tourist destination, while some of those construction sites, I belive are outside the usual tourist routes.

Also having met Tom_Green in person and having seen his persistant photo taking technique, I'm just advising him to be cautious, that's all.

Here's what Jan had to say on taking pictures, in what is known to be one, if not the most, liberal country in the World:

At times like these I feel Kafka was right after all.

I took a lot of pictures of u/c towers in Beijing when I was there last time. I won't be able to upload the photos until June though.
