It looks like one of the cranes did move - they were all 90 degrees away from each other, but you can see now that there is one that has moved. So, let's hope this is a promising sign.

Cranes are generally setup to move about based on wind conditions.

Well done, eagle eyes! I just spotted it now - the one crane that is offset from 90 degrees is in fact lifting something off the ground in the second photo.

I'm not sure if i like it or not. It's a true supertall. But big isn't always better. Somehow it doesn't fit well into the surroundings, it dominates everything. Some 200+ and 300+ building in this area would be very pleasant. Also to create a skyline in which this baby will be placed
Are there such projects near this one?

Its unfortunate that this has turned out so ugly. And its completely out of scale with its surroundings. Whoever is developing this mess should be ashamed.

Its out of scale in the same way the Burj Khalifa or Taipei 101 is when they were first constructed. Its to be expected with such megatalls. The brasher, the better.

It's all about perspective. By that I mean that if you were in China you'd understand why it's really not a sore thumb. You've got to remember that there are no streets in China that afford a perfect view of some distant skyline. If you're in a Chinese city then everywhere you go there are wall-to-wall street canyons.

I agree that the building is no masterpiece. I find it rather boring in pretty much every way and I think Tianjin deserves much better. I had hoped that the cladding would redeem it but it seems to have done nothing to improve upon the shit show that they've put up.

Anyway, in terms of how it fits in with its surroundings...believe it or not, it fits.

I don't think it is ugly at all. The cladding looks good, albeit very dirty due to the pollution. The design is simple and classy. I can't wait to see the cladding reach the top and the eventual crown detail. The only thing I am sad about is the pollution levels in the northern parts of China.

With so many buildings hastily constructed in Chinese cities - big ugly slabs, commie blocks and beautiful architecture alike - what happens in 50 years time when these become a hazard and need to be demolished?

Unlike western cities, quality leaves much to be desired and then there is the question of maintenance, ROI and occupancy. How do you take down a supertall when the neighborhood is dense?
