This and GF117 are rising VERY fast,,, It's pretty Astounding,, ,, Like 4x the pace of Seoul Lotte,( it's rising, but Not like these 3, well CTF too) are the dimensions that different? Or does it have to do with Politics?

Sprouting up fast, like a spring flower! But what's going on with the cladding? Is there a problem with it?
