US should move to metrics as well, like the rest of the world.
At least the differences are quite small, so it doesn't really matter.

They'll have to. A lot of coordination is required with the cranes so close to each other.

I was under the impression that this building was much further out in the middle of no where than what the last picture shows. The city looks like its not too far away. Build away!

It's actually quite far from the city, just that they have been developing that area in the recent years.

Goldin Finance 117 isn't nearly that far away from the main city as some people think. I measured on Google Earth today and Goldin Finance 117 is only 6.74 miles from Tianjin World Financial Center.

Just wait when this building is completed and people start taking pictures from the top, then we will see the great view this will have of the rest of Tianjin city.

Well at only 6 miles from the city, there will be no way of missing it,, unless it's a cloudy or smoggy day,, I'm excited to see this 1 rise.

You're right, I'm 40 and they tried (when I was a kid) to teach everyone the metric system, just never caught on. I think we're the only nation that still uses Miles instead of kilometers, feet insted of meters, farenheit instead of celcius,, and so on, I can't think of another nation that doesn't depend on metrics.

Not sure if they were massive outskirts of big cities or little booming towns.

I made a small movie with my telephone of just a few minutes of the trip but imagine this for a few hours long.





Sometimes even quite nice high-rises which would get a lot of views if they were build in any european city.
Technical Phone question - I also get the slanted view of perpendicular objects whilst traveling and filming from a CRH as is demonstrated in this video.

Does anyone have a great phone recommendation that will image a video such as the above and NOT shutter stop, slant, distort or strobe the image? I want to be able to quickly pan a shot and not have it strobe or distort.

As long as other countries get to drive on the left side of the road, I think we're fine ...

The UK has a mix of both. It IS referred to as 'The Imperial System', remember...
