The core is almost half the height of SWFC. It was a hole a year ago. Since underground work and foundation usually take longer than above ground, Shanghai Tower might be able to reach the SWFC height in one more year.

True, that guy was maybe educated in America thats why he doesn't know the geography
The border of "Asia" was first defined by British thus it was quite a Euro-centric notion, we don't acknowledge its legitimacy. The differences among Middel-East, South Asia, and East Asia are so huge that you can't put them together in one continent.

They are empty indeed, the damn Chinese government ordered the towers to light up themselves, in odrer to showcase a dynamic economy.

Nonsense!

It was the Greeks who defined Asia, Europe and Libya (the latter later renamed Africa).
Yes, as it turned out, Asia is much bigger than Europe.

Note that the line between Mediterranean and Red Sea conveniently cuts off Africa from Old World, with just the narrow Suez Isthmus. But what can you cut off from Eurasia?
