Hard to differentiate given that CTF stands for Chow Tai Fook...

That is hard to believe given the fact that the outside is all but completed.

Do you know about the "skyscraper index"? It's an economic phenomenon related to skyscrapers: it says that the construction of supertalls in a country is immediately followed by an economic crisis.
There is no direct explanation to this phenomenon, but it may be that supertalls are usually completed 10 years after their construction was decided, and meanwhile the economic bubble bursts.
It happened for the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, World Trade Center, Petronas towers, Burj Khalifa, among others.
And, now, as 2015 is the year of completion for several Chinese supertalls (Shanghai tower, Guangzhou CTF, Shenzhen Ping An center(?),...)
it seems that the curse is happening in China right now.

To conclude: the story of the tower of Babel is maybe more than a legend

There have been supertall completions almost every year in China since perhaps 1996. Your point is?
