Meh, the Chinese won't be communist in 20-30 years, and can hardly be said to be fully communist now.

That block is going to be awesome.

They are going to have to make that building 135 stories tall, just to fit it all in.

The tallest building in the world, right on good ol' woodward ave..

That'll show 'em...

I know a guy who can get a crew and slap up some Dryvit in couple weeks, no problem. 135 stories, OK, he'll have to rent a few cranes but no big deal, he'll get-r-done.
