You can see Fortune Center Phase 3 poised to be topped out at the back while the newly built mega-structure Parkview Green on your left hand side at the front.

Haha, you found my pictures then! I was going to upload them to here in a bit, but it seems you got there first, so thanks for posting them! I'm in Beijing at the moment at my parents' city centre apartment, which is where those were taken from. I'm here for 2 months, so I'll be able to provide consistent updates until the 13th of September.

I found my way onto the roof of the apartment block last night and got a few pictures, including this one of the CBD.
You can see the Fortune Tower with the white light at the very top (I'm guessing it's on one of the cranes).

Thanks for your photos, they look really great.

Hope you would spend a bit more time at the roof top and update this thread constantly for the next 2 months.

I shall do my best. I'll get photos from the roof and on my walks around Beijing too.

I got a few from my bedroom today, in slightly better light than yesterday - they've started cladding on the north side of the next floor.

Does that mean we all could expect a new thread about Beijing in Urban Showcase Forum? Looking forward to seeing your photos! Have a good time!

Quite possibly! I actually started one when I was out last year, but I might re-start it and update it with photos, or just make a new one.
I'm also hoping to travel to other places like Chengdu and Xi'an - I've already been to Shanghai, Guilin, Yangshuo and several other places (this is my 4th time out in China). Thank you, I will!

From 'The Place' shopping complex - the tower in front of it is Phase 2 of the Fortune development, the residential 'Fortune Heights' (200m).
