But cranes aren't normally set up until after a year or so of digging. Why would cranes be up already at SH Center? Sounds weird.

Yea, you're right! Does it mean they will start construction before finishing SWFC?

So prep. work has begun - does this mean that a winning proposal will be chosen soon, or has it already been chosen?
Finally something interesting happens with this project. I've been waiting for more than a year for this.

are they ever going to get rid of that garden in front of jin mao? build another ~200 m there to complete the citigroup/aurora plaza/Shanghai IFC cluster? that patch of green has been bugging me for a while and i can't wait to see it filled by an elegant office building
