What? It looks like Hong Kong to me. It's like saying a shot of Chicago or New York looks like Guangzhou or Shanghai.

the core will slow down significantly soon. it only has 2 more rises or 7m to go and top out at 426.5m where it will terminate for the hollow steel frame above. another smaller core will appear to the side of the tower.
digaram update
the floor plates are up to lev100 observation. NEXT core rise will surpass the 421m Jin mao in Shanghai

English is an official language in Hong Kong alongside Cantonese. It's not the most used language in Hong Kong, but you certainly wouldn't have any trouble finding people who can speak English.
