Hi all.

Hi Yann.

There can't be much going on.
At this stage in the foundation work for the main structure they will be either:
1 - digging further to expose previously install piles.
or
2 - installing piles from the bottom of the holes.

We seem to be in a holding pattern.


Ray.

These are pictures I took yesterday afternoon inside Coco Park this is a view on the North-West corner of the construction site, I don't really know to what this is linked. As it's not part of the PingAn construction and that there should not be any metro construction here.

I know...
But I can't tell much on the outlook of the construction site. Not much visible going on down there.
But maybe we can find more information on chinese websites. (I'm not chinese).

I don't think that PAIFC is now on hold.Look at those dorms for the workers,obviously they are still working for the construction site.

Still nothing major here! I have just noticed that at least there was a guard at the south entrance of the main construction site to keep cars from parking in front of the entrance which means that there is probably some activity of trucks going in and out (or only out :S ) of the site.
Scion? z0rg? any extra info?

Man, China is nasty right now. I didn't even know about this. If the go ahead with this one they're gonna be kicking everyone else's ass with supertalls. And supertalls that they actually have a realistic and economic need for, too. My favorite is the Shanghai Tower because it has the most floors, full floors, and no spire.

This one is taller but with a spire and less floors, how much floor area is this one supossed to be?

Here is an interesting article in chinese, it can ben translated by google and remains pretty understandable.
http://www.gddkj.gov.cn/ShowArticle.asp?ArticleID=8660

It says that the foundation work is particularly difficult as it's surrounded by close buildings and the construction of the metro that is just adjacent. The deformation max could not exceed 4mm.

If chinese readers could give us perhaps more feedbacks on this article?

I think that is the smoking gun.... NOT on-hold just a tough project to build.
