What you're starting to see recently is a rush of "烂尾楼" (rotten tail buildings... i.e. projects that got put on hold) that are being purchased by developers with international connections, financed by so-called "hot money".

I haven't wrapped my head around exactly how it all works, but in the words of a friend of mine that works for Great Wall Asset Management, "The economic basis for the 烂尾楼 has not changed. The fact that the area has already been cleared and foundations built makes investing in a 烂尾楼 much more profitable than a new building".

The big thing holding the projects back had been that the banks have been holding their loans at face value, even as the developers went belly up. Those loans are being shifted to the Asset Management Companies (still at face value, of course), and then being lent to developers backed by hot money from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and (to a lesser extent) Japan.

It is amazing how almost all Chinese supertalls use the same construction procedures. Those gigantic holes are really similar in almost any supertall construction site in China.

If it's standardised, you can apply mass production methods to decrease costs and maintain high quality standards.

Yeah, there always seems to be the big concreted circle in a square. Looks interesting.
