Another money flanting project to show the world that China is still booming. However, this project is going to take longer than SWFC excluding delays.

Looks like the view is going to be obstructed by that rising high rise in the photo. Looks like we wont be seeing many or anymore photos from that angle for a while until the Shanghai Tower gets well above ground.

Hi all.

Thanks for posting zorg.

It looks like the digging has begun in earnest.

I wonder how deep the hole will be ?
Anyone have any elevation drawings yet for this thing ?

Hi Dennis.

This is one I chose to watch and save pics from a while ago. I would like a boatload of info like I have on the BD for all the projects I watch (a dozen or so). I would like nothing more than to break down info and post on it and to compile a plan for this and other projects.

Unfortunately I doubt there will be much info and surely nothing like the BD.

Needless to say I will save any and all drawings/prints and info.
I repeat my request for an elevation drawing and/or any plans and drawings.
I still want to know how deep the hole will go.
