I keep forgetting about this tower. Nice that it's actually rising, because the renders still seem like one of those futuristic never-built concepts

I remember the guangzhou one being on hold with the core up like 15 floors for quite a while though.

It's a tragedy...

here are the news:

http://shanghaiist.com/2015/08/13/ti...nhai-blast.php

Chow Tai Fook is around 4km from the explosion center. this post from reddit seems to have some insight on the explosion (but has no sources whatsoever):

The fact that chemical is concentrated in that area, people panic and concerns the releasing of toxic gases after the explosion, many evacuating caused road jam.

People from 10km away can feel the shockwave, windows shattered. The Donghai Road station is destroyed.

They said no one is alive within 1km in diameter, the explosions happened in tanggu district which is residential area still in developing.

The total population of Binhai is 2.5 millions and the population density in the area is expected 2000/kmsq, expected injuries/casualties will be around 7000~70000.

There were two explosions, the first one is equals to 3 tons of TNT and the second one is 21 tons.

Estimated by the Seismograph (ML 2.3/ ML 2.9) http://i.imgur.com/L3BRe7u.jpg

Explosions seen from different places:

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTMwODIyMzkxNg==.html
this is the location of Chow Tai Fook in the city: http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/map...04643&z=18&t=k

looking at those numbers, expect to see updates worldwide tomorrow.

Let's hope it's not as bad as it looks.

A lot of the area is still under construction as we should know best. my hope is that a lot of the apartment blocks you can see on google earth close to the site are actually not yet completed and therefor didn't cost even more lifes.

I heard a phone interview with someone living less than 10 km but "many km" away. All the windows in his 16 floor apartment blew in and he says he has cuts all over (but not bad enough to refrain from calling the news)....
