Is the entire core going to be just elevator space?

In re China's pollution

Yes, it's bad. Some cities have it worse than others. And some days are worse than others. Shanghai's is average by Chinese standards, which basically means it would be considered hazardous anywhere else. I will say there has been a appreciative reduction in the air pollution in the seven years I've been here, but it's still way, way behind the developed word.

Today and yesterday were exceptionally bad in Shanghai. Visibility was down two about 1/2 mile all day and the sun was a faint, glowing disc in the sky...at about 2:00 in the afternoon!

What are the green things around the bottom? And that core, I must say again, is just massive, it's a lot of elevator space.

The size of this building is mind boggling. Seriously.

They are talking about the green stuff, and indeed it is the nylon net.
