Secondly if you look at Bing maps, you will see it is not the middle of no where, it is on a vacant lot on the edge of town. The city is coming down two side of the project, as you can see in many of the posted pictures.
At least now, I know that my level in the language is better than his

Well, as of 9:30 am local time, there is work going on at JT. No break for Christmas, unlike in Western countries. Maybe one more core jump before New Year's Day?

It was more just commentary on this being a vanity building. There's no real reason for it being so tall other than to get attention. With that said, I'm very excited about it being built.

Thank you for pointing that out though, all this time I thought this was being built out of need.

Yes, it is being built just to look at it from the outside, the floors will not be used.

So, it is not being built out of need. You think?
