Construction will start in September 2013 and the structure will reach ground level by March 2016.

When you say construction, does that mean piling or excavation? I ask because piling machines have been on site for months, however, only a few. I guess what you mean is that piling will kick in high gear in September a lot like Chow Tai Fook Binhai Center had piling kick in high gear in May 2012.

I'm also guessing we could very well see a year or more of just piling like we've seen with Chow Tai Fook Binhai Center.

Piling. Currently is just tests I presume. The whole piling, excavation, foundation, and underground floors for a near-megatall is just going to take this long.

Agree, the design should stay. It's just perfect

We can easily count 150-155 floors. Probably +600m.
The other towers have around ~84, ~66, ~56 and ~50 floors.

Looks nice, the minecraft design is better though


But 150 floors sounds awesome, definitely 600m+

i rather have the smaller minecraft mountain (one of the best designs i have ever seen for a building) than an increased height but worse design. the design is still awesome though. if they build this one in the end, i just wish they never proposed the better design, since it will have a bad taste to see this awesome design rising, knowing it could have been even better

Well I was suspecting the montain design was too good to be true. This is what china often do, first propose some futuristic stuff and then replace it with something cheaper. At least this time the replacement is still pretty good to me (and it's taller!). It's just not even close to be as visionary as the original. Too bad, I was very curious how such design would turn out in reality.

yeah the replacement still is a world's top design that is the sad thing, we had one of the best designs ever proposed and then when it does change it will take a time to apprechiate the new design. similar to greenland center in dalian, the first design was so damn amazing and the final design we got is still one of the best, but took me a while to accept, because of the high standard the previous design set.
