Well, there's steady progress in the mall hole. So it's definitely not going on hold or anything. There must be the reason why they still waiting with the main tower. Maybe the concrete is still not cured, although it had a lot of time for it already

This building has a relatively high "aspect ratio" ( tall and narrow!)? And are the stones on the exterior "real" (to reduce deflections)?

Hey Guys!

I have been following this thread and a lot more projects in Shenzhen on this website since I moved to SZ around a year ago and finally made it to register myself for this forum.

As I pass by the site each day at least twice on the way to the office and back home I have noticed that they started to modify the north gate by demolishing the arch of the gate and widen the whole thing as well as they started to built up some new scaffolding near the north east corner.

Anyone knows what's this about?

Cheers

Michael

You'd think they might have thought of that before they built the ******* gate.

Concrete pouring for the shopping mall slab has finally started!

I also noticed that they placed something on the ramp which I honestly can't identify. Btw seems that they are keeping the ramp for some material supply for the basement or are there any signs that they gonna remove the ramp soon?

They may not remove it, it could be used as a ramp for parking if there will be any under the mall or even the main tower...

Maybe but I really don't think so. The ramp as it is now takes a lot of space and it may be done a lot more efficiently in the future.

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.
The new highspeed rail link will bring people closer!

Really need to get a china visa once this tower is finished!
