Thanks for the updates. Are people being forced out of their homes in some areas for constructions?

If China want some areas for constructions,The government will compensate some money to the house-owner.
In fact,if the house is legal,then the house-owner surely can get reasonable money .
but if the house is illegal,the owner built the house without permission,then they will get nothing when the government backout the illigal houses.

It can still make it if:
1. The foundation is completed by August.
2. One floor is constructed per five days.

You can be assured the government will do its best to get this thing completed to the limits of engineering possibility.
