No Sir, it's not just about personal tastes. In the Lujiazui pic one is able to see a distance of hundred of meters, if not kilometers. Standing in the middle of the Marina block one can see no more than 50 meters around himself (see the dark, gloomy area in the photo?) and that's a fact. Exhaust gases stagnating between "dense" walls are also a fact. The limits to sustainable traffic (human and mechanic) are also a fact, not being able to see anything from a tower's window also is, etc. etc. etc.

I doubt it will start soon actually. The dorms are there for ages already, and it doesn't look like they are removing them.

I walked next to the plot yesterday and they are removing the workers dorms. Plot will be empty soon, probably to prepare digging.

good news hahaha. Shame its near Chinese New Year, because all work will be halted right?

So you know a lot about the workers dorm? They seem to pop up where there are construction work, however, my question is, are these just rooms for sleeping or do they have showers in them? They look very temporary to have showers imo. Yeah, I don't usually see these in Perth so I'm just very interested. I know that China has 24 hr building shifts like Vietnam? So that is why they have these rest rooms.

You ever been inside one?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, I've never entered any of these dorms, but it seems that there is no running water inside. Toilets and showers are on seperate buildings nearby.
