Wow this city has some really beautiful/cool buildings. In terms of population where does Guangzhou rank? I guess in pop, area and other things. Some awesome buildings and a lot of new construction.

in wikipedia it is listed as the chinese city with the largest build up area, meaning it is the largest city that is surrounded by other quite large cities. for urban population it ranks fourth meaning it is one one the biggest cities in china alone as well. guangzhou also does have a quite high gdp per capita. its wealth is based on manifacturing and a lot of factories as far as i know.

The core rising again, after long time. Soon we will have to see the first setback.

SSP says CTF will finish in 2017, but with this construction speed, it may be T/O at the end 2014, and will finish end-2015.

the reason i put 2017 as a finish date is because the developpers themselves were not that optimistic and did plan for an opening 2017, which is very uncommon for develloppers to not be overly optimistic, especially in china. ctbuh also features the 2017 date btw. i think it will top ofut in 2015 and finish before 2017 aswell, but i think the finishing estimate will stay the same unless the developpers mention something different.

I just corrected the building's drawing according to your feedback. I also updated it's progress to the current height of 355 meters or 1 165 feet
