it's across the border from Hong Kong, it went from a village into the worlds biggest city (recently merged contiguously with Guangzhou) in 30 years. Its population is 42 million contiguous (of which 10 million are in the Shenzhen city proper), 65-120 million metro

The Hong Kong- Shenzhen- Guangzhou area has about 40+ million people.

Where you got 120 million is beyond be, you would have to add several provinces in southern China to get that number

The foundation(s) is the most critical part of the overall structure. And concrete (notice there are lots) needs time to gain strength depending on the formulation they are using.

The entire Pearl River Delta has aproximately 120 million people, but it's not a single contiguous metropolis. That figure includes the populations of Dongguan, Foshan, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Huizhou, Jiangmen, Macau, Shenzhen, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Zhaoqing, and any smaller surrounding communities.

He was wrong about Shenzen being the biggest city in the world though, as Tokyo easily holds the top spot by any measurement or classification.

I was just asking the opening year, because I honestly know nothing about this tower. But judging from pics it looks like a 2016-2017 open is reasonable. Can anyone give me the answer?
