Well, nothing is above ground anyway, so updates aren't that interesting anyway right now.

As soon as it starts rising above ground I'll treat you all to some fresh updates.

oliver999,
It's located between Nanjing Xilu and Yan'An GaoJia, in the same crossing as Jing An Si but diagonally from it. The plot isn't huge, so I guess it will pretty much be the tower and not much around it - wihch I like.

Since they are delaying so much, let's hope they are planning to increase the height at least 2m so that it will become another supertall project for Shanghai

Nice design, seems to be the typical look lately though, especially for Asian countries.

That render cracks me up. They didn't even try to edit out the smog, and simply stuck a blue sky in the background.

What's even funnier is that it's a snippet from a pano I took a couple of years ago--actually, there wasn't much smog at all--just used a crappy lense.

Back before my days of watermarking.

Any updates, or photos?? it should be at least halfway up by now, and yes, its a simple design but with banal eligance, like the World Trade Center was.

Very nice tower, I like the splitting effect from bottom to top.
