Apply for a job at Ping An Insurance and make it into top management, then one of those offices is yours.

Can you imagine that they've already reached ground level ? After so much stalling, now they've reach a great pace !!

Remember, this is still the boring part of the construction. Once it gets past the podium, it will skyrocket!

I like this part of the construction too, with those massive steel core parts. Always fun to see a timelapse about such sites.
