I see, no wonder that they usually construct these towers during the night.

Not all of them, but there are evidences showing that some of them are hired by the Chinese government. We also noticed that the lots of cargo ships sailing along Huangpu river were indeed organized by the government in order to show off a prosperous trade economy

I think he has mistaken the Shanghai Tower as the small tower in front of the actual ST, ie the Oriental Tower or something like that. That has just began rising.

What's up with all these communist government/empty cities comments? Why haven't they been deleted yet since its not part of this tower construction? Can we open a thread for these empty cities somewhere else?

I think towers like this one gets lets sh*t on sites such as goulumi since people there actually talk construction and not nation vs nation
