Hi all.

Looks like someone got the concrete truck stuck - looks like buddy is givin' it a kick in discust... Looks like they are gonna pull it with the packer.

I wonder why they are pouring the shallow footing all the way around the site ?

I liked this tower the most:


But probably was rejected because it resembled too much to Russia Tower.

It would be nice if there was some photo to compare the dimensions of the two foundation circles. In the ones above the proportions are not clear.

I can imagine that, but, how do they say, an image is worth 1000 words.

Yes, an image, a picture, a photo, a depiction, a painting, a figure...

Err... it's the same as before... ...just slightly better...
No, I meant a picture (an image) where both circles are visible (obviously one of them as superimposed graphics).

For me, the circles are about the same radius. Both towers will have equal large podium. Even if SC will be thicker, I see the podiums are the same size.

1. Pudong is sitting on a mud, and heavyweight skyscrapers are sinking very slowly down toward the ground

2. Rising sea levels make Shangai city vulnerable to flooding and etc...
