Quick update:

Cladding is being put on, core is rising fast. Steel on tower pictured nearly reaches the cranes, so I guess the cranes will move up soon too.

A great project!
The towers are rising very fast, so keep it!
Hope they will top the entire skyline of Dalian shortly.

From ten days ago, but interesting. Taken during a protest in Dalian concerning a potentially highly dangerous chemical plant located below sea level that had a very close call during a recent tropical storm. The story I heard from three different groups of people was that if it had leaked the chemicals they could have killed millions within 40 minutes (never read that in the news though).



Here's the link to the story:

This is my last personal update for Dalian, I'm flying home to San Francisco tomorrow and then moving to go to UCLA. Hopefully I'll be back in this city again soon, I really loved it here and enjoyed taking pictures. I'll still update every-now and then since my gf is staying here a bit longer and promises to take some pictures.

Pics snapped while hiking on my favorite area, it was great weather today. The towers are growing really fast.
