I think it will grow fast now, only framing and bracing without core.

Next are two big levels before lateral framing shaping "the hole".

I'm SO PUMPED for the hole to start. I know this information must be floating around, but how tall is the hole? And is anything being done with it, apart from elevators up to the observation deck?

The top structure will be only observation (bridge floor 96, skybridge floor 100), exhibition (hall floor 94) and plant floors (last level = 101).
And of course elevators shafts in the corners...
Underneath are hotel levels (79-93).
I reckon "hole" is between ~430m bottom - ~470m top (approx.).

That competition wouldn't be healthy for Shanghai's economy;
besides, it will dwarf SWFC which I wouldn't like that much.
