They should do this, there would be no increase in crime, but there would be tons of people with no jobs. Residential complex security is China's #1 employer.

Considering that most of southern china is now suffering with a huge labour shortage .It won't be a very bad deal.

I think the core is done the only thing to worry is cladding which cannot be done by expo.

Great to see some new pics! Next stage here would be the laying/assembling of the steel for the core yes?

Hi PG.
The shots from HD are from the 18th - great shots by the way.
The newest shot from the 21st definately shows rebar being layed out. The deeper area in the center has had rebar layed out for a while now.
Fantastic progress on this project.
