It depends... are you a student? Do you have a job? What kind of job? Do you have a girlfriend? Are you married?

Support for the surrounding ground. Common practice in areas with soft and fertile soil (Shenzhen, Shanghai, Guangzhou, etc are all on river delta).

Yep, it's actually underneath that road - the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong HSR (250km/h) runs right beneath that street, and they're doing a cut-and-cover for the tracks.

A question: I'm not familiar with this project but I checked the renders on the first page and noticed that the two towers were much more distant from eachother there then the holes in the ground are. Was there a redesign of the complex since 2007 when it was first proposed?

There wasn't any redesigning. The second tower will be left to the left hole, by the street. The left hole is just for mal. Scion even stated it in his last photo update.
