It's feasiable but unlikely I mean working at this speed requires great effort over a prolonged time. I mean there needs to be a sense of urgency a work ethc.

I know the building looked ridiculously huge before but now the construction just looks like it's perpetual. And it hasn't even reached half of its final height!

Look at this picture of Ping An during August:



People already said that it looked huge in that time period. Now look at the building:

This is one of the unique qualities of the building: it looks so colossal I wonder what it'll look like when it's completed!

This is so huge! I can't believe anything so big can be built so quickly. I hope the speed isn't coming at the expense of the safety of the workers -- either those who are constructing the building or those who will be employed there.

This thing is just absolutely colossal! I don't know why it looks so massive in these pictures when it is "only" 300 or so meters. Maybe it's the columns. This will definitely be one of the most imposing buildings ever.

Wonderful pics! That last one had me wondering - there is a large meshwork
covering at the Coco Park, next to the Ping An building. I wonder if they are worried about debris falling onto customers there?

I wish I could go to Shenzhen in 2015-6 so that I can see it completed in person. And it looks like another core jump!

It is pretty close to the tower, pieces could fall pretty far from great height.
