well... first of all, not much places in this world have skyscrapers over 400m.

Actually, It is the only place in the world right now, in that situation, where you have a +400m and a +600m tower close to each other (plus a tower close to 500m) even the mighty BK only have a +300m tower near. (and is not even that close)

What about Guangzhou? It doesn't have a 600m+ building, but it has a 400m+ complete, and a 500m+ U/C (I suppose it has a 600m+ if you count the TV tower, but that is across the river)

If any other city is going to have a 400m, 500m, 600m combo, it will definitely be in China.

You young guys are funny.

The air in China today in many places is what urban air was like in the USA in the early 1970's during smog alerts. Los Angeles, DC, NYC, etc.

Do not know.

Time to watch crane movements.

The core will go from 9 to 5 elements, then 3. The last 3 floors of core with 3 elements will be surrounded by steel.

Then you get 2 cranes, not 4.

Then you get the crown, and one crane in the middle of the crown, and so on.

All of this from the video up thread.
