All supertall threads follow the same process. They sometimes stop working for months once the hole is dug, btw. You can check other threads with Prep status if you want and compare.
Sorry. I overreacted a little.
In the NHT thread there had been a lot of talk about it being postponed for a year, but that was before Imre posted some photos. And Culwallas digram has Shanghai tower and not NHT, but there is definately lots happening at both sites.
Also, if "digging a hole doesn't mean "construction" properly", then isn' t that all that is happening at the NHT site?

On the other hand, this would have to be my favourite supertall project,
but second after One Dubai if that does go ahead.

After I have finished my LEGO Burj Dubai, I will attempt to build the Shanghai Center, which will be quite difficult because there isn't any decent diagrams like the BD has.

Cool lego model!

I know this might be OT but why does imageshack always try to open a popup window to show you the same pic you can already see without one? Drives me nuts!!

This is my favourite huge proposal right now (over 500m), I hope it will get built as planned.

I'm not sure of this at all, but could this potentially be a form of "top-down" foundation construction?

I don't think this tower fits in perfectly with the surrounding area, cos it looks too funky and a bit oblique.

If those really are drilling machines, why they are drilling there, when they should rather dig hole with diggers?

I agree.

In fifty years, Shanghai might validly be the greatest city in the world.

Because nobody here knows.

Nobody had access to the project, nobody came here explain.
