I spotted yesterday even more trucks with steel parts at the south of the hotel plot. They just parked there and are waiting. Those column parts are simply massive, it's unbelievable. Plus, it seems that they have done a new gate at the small street beside Coco Park. Not sure for what purpose coz the street there is pretty narrow.

The core of Ping An has a similar or larger surface area than 432 Park.

It's much quicker to build an antenna.

I kid, I kid.

The first concrete of the columns is visible and new steel parts were added on top of the columns.

I admit that the camera of my mobile isn't the best, but then I think "bad" pictures are better than no pictures.
You are right those braces are not straight, so it is not the camera! ;-) I was thinking the same before and I am wondering how this will influence the seismic performance and the loading transfer.

When I first saw this picture, I thought: "Where are all the workers? The site looks totally empty."

Then I saw the trailer on the far right, and realized how much the camera must be zoomed out.

Then it struck me (once again) how large this building is.

Last, I found some workers (or people, at least). They are barely visible as black dots along the bottom edge, slightly right of the middle.
