Want to bet that if this tower was three meters taller, this thread would have twice as many posts?

The site looks like a giant abandoned place in an industry area in this pic. Maybe because the air looks dirty...

The problem is not the height but the location if you are talking about the sheer number of posts.

If this building was half the size but located in NYC it would have twice has many posts easy.

Good to have you back Kanto.

The pace of this building seems to be about 3 months per X bracing. It probably is a little under 3 months for each X section. Either way, given 8 total X bracing sections, this beauty should top out sometime in 2016, perhaps end of 2015.

Kanto is on the job!!!! Missed these damn Charts!!!!!

With Barbaric ( awesome updated pics),, and Kanto's Graphs this sucker will get some exposure,,,,

and Damn if it were 3 meters taller,,,

Droneriot,, this would probably get more coverage than Ping An ,, Easily, it's got the 2nd highest roof in the World...... And I feel,, roofs are the measuring point.... As well as many others,, but that will be argued for Decades...

These 2 photos from barbaric are quite awesome,, don't think we've ever seen this from that angle, and to think it's only 41% of t.o. height..
