So this is actually going to happen. A building that'll make the world's top 10 (or 20) list.

I like this design. But it looks like one of those designs that should go in the "never built" section. But I'm happy it's not.

This will probably rise short after Wuhan Greenland if all goes right!

Can I ask a question?

Why do the cranes that are not in America yellow and thinner? They look more flimsy. Is it because America has higher standards for the safety of the people?

But I see those kinds of cranes on top of towers in foreign countries. Why are they different from our cranes?

The tower cranes that built Shanghai Tower were the largest in the world if I remember correctly.

It could be a case of cranes looking smaller on bigger buildings in Asia.

That might make since, except for the fact that these cranes arent currently anchored to a building...

These small cranes may be replaced by bigger ones when the tower rises?

You will probably have more luck posting these requests in the "Report status changes"-thread because the mods (unfortunately) don't check every thread regularly.
