China has been trying to cool the hot property market for quite a long time already, but so far it hasn't worked so well especially since the stock market has been booming amidst investor frenzy this year.

There's a difference between a real boom and an inflation fueled boom. The first is based on real market forces (supply and demand) whereas the second is based on inflated money supply - meaning each dollar is of less value than it was before because there are effectively more of them. It skews a businessman's measure of demand because he's getting more money, but in actual fact it doesn't mean more customers.

China is different from the US. The US is a 200 year old economy - it's established in the world and very well developed. China hasn't had a functional economy since 1948 when the Communists took over. It's quite literally just waking up to the world. It's not a developed market like the US so it can boom for much, much longer. Besides, it's not really a boom so much as it is growth.

Emporis figures are outdated. Anyway, checking Emporis to know about on going projects in China is an absolute waste of time.

Looks good. I'm glad they're planning to use all the land instead of leaving a huge useless field of grass next to the building.

I think that was the plan all along -- they just needed a developer to come up with an idea.
