Turns out this is a building in Shanghai.

My guess this building was used as a stand-in to visualize height and massing. Thats really going out of your way to recruit a visualization firm to realize that, but not something that hasn't been done before.

As long as they limit it to skyscraper construction, I'll allow it.  Another 20 million people evacuating the next hurricane would be kind of rough.

Not if we had high speed evacuation trains to Dallas

People in Shanghai don't need to evacuate in typhoon season.

not only skyscrapers, we also need Shanghai subway, highway, maglev, high speed train, airport......

Interesting logistics thought experiment.  One shrinking refugee camp on one end and a growing one at the other.

That amount of people in one place is hard to get my head around. You would need every imaginable way to get around.

You know things have slowed down if this thread is staying at the top of Going Up.

 

 

 

Things haven’t really slowed down, this project is just that really nice carrot dangling in front of HAIF’s collective face.  Forever elusive...

They've slowed some. This lot needs to sit for a few years until the hotel market comes back and then put a nice hotel here, or mixed use with hotel component. Last thing we want here is a huge glass office building looming over Market Square.

really wish this tower would start to happen soon.  starting to get a little worried about it, though.  It's been "in the works" for a very long time, just like the new "Chevron Tower" we've all been dreaming of...

One ugly parking garage down and then another not quite as ugly parking garage goes up, like an ugly wart. I also hope they build what they said they will, but am getting a bad feeling about this. I try to ignore it while eating gyros and look at the Hines buildings going up.
