Yeah, seriously; there should probably be a new category of countries that an economically surging country like China fits into; perhaps "emerging economies" would be close enough.

Anyways, China roughly resembles the US in the 1950s to early 60's, massive infrastructure and public works development, and rapid improvement of living standards, and the emergence (to takeover in HK's case) of world class cities like Shanghai, HongKong, Guangzhou, Chongqing, and a few others. Only things differ between the two is the political system and the extent of cultural influence (no such thing as broadway or hollywood yet in China).

Actually how do you know that its westernization which is the factor? I think as people get more educated or the uneducated being more aware of their ever modernizing society, that they need to get up to scratch with their appearance and represent themselves better.

In Australia for example, the new trend is to wear as minimal as possible for both men and women, like the guy in the picture, you can find many guys wearing shorts that short. its quite controversial since we are actually going backwards but thats just the way things are. Yes, in this sense, I hope China doesn't follow because its completely classless to be dressing like that

Is everything really that rusty or is it that the dirt is red? Everything looks so dirty.

And what's with this hotel? Is it the 66 floor building or a completely separate project?

Why exactly are they called "twins" if ones 66 floors and the others almost twice that? Any skyscrapers that have a "twin" that's significantly shorter than it actually? I think the name "brother" or something similar would be better :p

It's so amazing to see things happening in the construction site. Thanks for the updates, YannSZ.
One thing I still wonder. Is it still official that it's to be 648m (i.e. will have a spire) and will become China's tallest skyscraper?

Not one of my more technical posts I know but I do like the height increase.

660 m. is not official yet, since I believe no one has seen any elevation drawings. As someone has probably said before; it could be the height above sea level.

It couldn't be the height above sea level since it would be 118fl according to the advertisement put by Ping'An.You may check the ad on a piece of newspaper some pages back.
