This is another tower being build in Tianjin, you mean the Nanjing Greenland financial Complex in Nanjing.
And indeed towers such as the Nanjing WTC, the Suning Plaza Tower in Zhenjiang and the Chow Tai Fook Centre in Guangzhou are missing. But it's clear that China is leader.

Pretty funny. Educate yourself. Like Robert said, China is aging faster than the US. It's American money and American companies building up China. China and the UAE, Moscow, etc. are all about status. Empty supertalls that light up at night.

If the USA government had any balls we'd tax the shit out of the junk coming from China and that would be the end of China's boom. In fact, they need the US more than we need them. China has capital controls and can't spend it's money domestically so they spend it overseas and mostly in the US. They need to cheat to get ahead.

China also has a falling stock market, high inflation, a housing bubble and severe poverty in the interior. The labor rate is rising, the subsidies have ended and US companies are tired of the commies stealing their intellectual property. All of this is sending manufacturing back to the US.

Oh and I can't forget the ghost cities the Chinese are building to manipulate their GDP. Yup. All is just great in the new promised land of the People's Republic.

Control of speech. Control of the internet. Control of births. Control of thought. Robert is right. Look for a revolution there within 20 years.

This should go into the hall of fame of the stupidest posts ever posted on this forum.

To a more serious note go and use your own advice:

Eric tried to bring things back to topic, I try to help him......

some fine cladding detail:

by rui525212010


Now a question: how they are going to manage the application of the internal cladding all around the slab protrusions made at each floor to sustain the external 'skin'?

You're absurd. Elite Shanghai is atypical of China. Moreover, $2,000 is peanuts.
