The bet is on! I still think level 100. The steel hasn't been laid yet to support the cladding and we're already at level 20 (23 new update?) with no steel anywhere. SWFC has steel at level 20 and still no cladding. Your right about the HVAC. I would like to hear more details about that and the water too.

Japanese developer building China's tallest office tower

(Kyodo News International (Tokyo) (KRT) Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
Jan. 1--SHANGHAI --

Akio Yoshimura keeps a pair of binoculars in his office on the seventh floor of the HSBC Tower in Shanghai so he can look out the window at a cement hull that is growing steadily taller after a shaky startup.
