I agree.

It's always been at the top of my list. Maybe in the 1930s I would have had New York at the top - but I wasn't born yet!

I second this. I give a pass to the slow progress. It looks like a hard job.

I also have not been following this thread so closely and that way I get some satisfaction from the changes I see.

There are two construction plots in the bottom of this amazing photo. Looks like at least one of these two is a construction of quite high building. Can anyone identify them, how high are they going? The dark one seems to be the preparation so far, right?

Yeah, we really need some answers about what's happening on those plots. They are in a very important location. Someone must know something.

This is how the plot looked like a while ago. Also the street names.
I did a quick google search but I didn't find out anything. Maybe someone who speaks Chinese could find out more.
