Thankfully this one looks fully paid for. So unlike the Spire, I think this one will be built.

You talking about me ?
Who you calling "some" ... ?


It's just educated conjecture ....
But I will have to quote the above post if my guess is correct ... just so you know ...

Nah, it wasn't about you I think we both understeand that if some rings will covers with levels floors thats only because of pure coinsidence, and we also know it for sure that at least several rings aren't related to levels floors. But some told us allready at the digging stage, that rings marks the levels. I allways say it won't be the case, and now it is proved... Well, not like it's something very important anyway

OMG , there are so many skyscrapers being whacked out in China. It's very great to see these magnificent highrises be chucked up all over China.

Damn, not that I want to complain about much appreciated updates, but couldn't jamyan have made the second picture high-res rather than the first one? Much more of the hole visible there.

Guys, they're speeding up. The previous floor took them five weeks to finish, this one not even full three weeks. Really good sign Now they have one floor ahead and then installation of the second section of supercolumns.

Great update, looks really good there. I'm going on holiday for the next three weeks so when I'm back I hope to see the next floor!

As always great update by Ciryrain It seams they started works on the next floor (scaffolding all over the place), but as we can see simultaneously they starting installing next section of megacollumns. Thats quite smart move. Doing these two operations in the same time will save a lot of time. I'm start to believe they can reach street level way before end of the year
