Personally, this building is more beautiful than Burj Dubai.
This building is a work of finest art.

Done! They probably wont start digging till December though, when the ground breaking ceremony will be celebrated.

Anyway, digging doesn't mean u/c. A hole is just a hole. Will change to u/c when they set the first foundation beam.

Agreed, best practice. So many buildings "broke ground" months (years) ago.

That's debateable, but its an opinion.

App means approved, and means that all government approvals have been finalized. Prep means that they are preparing the site for construction (which officially starts when they start the foundation), which is happening right now.

Hi all.

I think this is a great looking skyscraper that will lend to the unique look of each of the 3 buildings set very close to each other.

Groundbreaking in Dec. ... good news.

So that's great news that preparation is going on, and that construction will start soon....
The design of this tower is great, it's my favorite highrise-design in China and IMO will be the most beautiful skyscraper in China and eastern Asia when finished, and also one of the most remarkable.
Also, it's a great addition to the Pudong skyline , esp. in combination with the SWFC and Jin Mao tower it'll look very impressive and might as well become one of the most recognizable supertall-clusters worldwide.

I'm sure this is one of those towers that will look much better in real life than in renders. Just imagine all those gardens and the glass wall.
