If you mean the outside, yes. If you mean the whole thing, probably 2016 or 2017

Not a lot of Coverage or following,, especially when this dwarfs anything on the N. American Continent,, 3 days surpassed between posts. It's pretty crazy how this is under everybody's radar.

This is almost complete and many people do not know this city very well so why bother? I mean the cbd is just about done, with a few more plots with 1 more supertall and then we are done.

No, far from it. Because when this first CBD finishes, the International Financial City CBD will start, followed by Baitan CBD a little bit later

What would a reasonable time frame be for those two projects? From starting date to completion?

I am going to address your post directly

1. The role of the western media is not to educate or inform except when doing so it reinforces existing perceptions.

2. Through careful manipulation of information there exists an image of Modern China that is not consistent with reality.

3. The perception that outside of a few urban centers such as Beijing or Shanghai the rest is endless villages populated by poor uneducated peasants living in mud brick dwellings devoid of basic amenities.

4. In order to maintain such a perception developments such as this project are either ignored, downplayed or portrayed as extravagant wastes of time and money being situated in the middle of nowhere etc.

As such the very last thing you should expect now is un biased , objective and informative coverage. The only way this one will make the news is if somebody tries to blow it up or flies into the side of it.

You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Media coverage outside of the two big centers is non existent and it;s largely intentional.

Remember the saying

You can cover the sun with your thumb but that won't make the sun go away.

The proof of massive urbanization in China will eventually surface just not right now.

This is the 3rd time I'm writing this because my computer keeps gliching out on me.

Rumors and pictures have shown on gaoloumi seems like IFC is a go. Greenland's plot seems to be the busiest, with cranes and drilling already. And the A001 300m is also going. Also a possible 300m twins seems a go also. Look on google maps and you will see.

Baietan is old news, it a long-term plan and not a lot of news recently. Only news I know is that the 290m Piano Center plot's bid is somewhere this year, not sure when and the 110 Libai Plaza is almost complete?

Pazhou (Modiesha, not poly) is estimated to have 3-5 supertalls with a ton of 200ms that have already began construction.

Then theres the 2 cbd in Panyu, South station (not much news) and Wanbo cbd. South station is suppose to have 2 300m and 2 200m with a lot more to come (Also a new stadium for evergrande). Wanbo however is just amazing, 1 320m and an unknown supertall (looks around 400m).

Wanbo:



320m
