Perhaps, it is more about water control, and air quality beneat the quarry. What's else slowing down this project?

it's under construction now!

---------------------------------------
Construction Starts On China's First "Sunken Hotel"
August 13, 2009

Construction recently started on Songjiang Hotel, China's first "sunken hotel", which is to be built in a water-filled quarry in Songjiang, Shanghai.
The quarry, which is 89 meters below sea level, is at the east of Hengshan inside the Shanghai Sheshan National Holiday Resort. The hotel will be constructed in accordance with five-star standards.

The 21-floor hotel will have two floors under water, two floors above ground-level and 17 floors between the water surface and ground-level. The 19 floors above the water will include a presidential view room, standard guestrooms, an underwater restaurant and cafe. All the 400 guestrooms will have sightseeing balconies to enjoy views of a waterfall opposite to the hotel.

For anyone who still remembers this project, construction won't start until the EXPO is over according to news reports. The city authorities are assessing the emergency evacuation & fire safety system for the project, since it is different from other hotels in Shanghai--well, you need to get up instead of down in case of emergence.

Not much update per se, but someone did manage to get down to the bottom to take a few pictures with the help from the workers on site:
