From this perspective you can clearly see that SWFC's floors are not as tall as Jin Maos´s floors. Ev´ry ten floors in JM corresponds to twelve floors in SWFC.

it was going fast but its been at lev31 for a while. Burj Dubai is catching fast. its now lev36 or 137m while SWFC is lev31/141m. BurjD should surpass it in next week or so.

Note that on the right hand side of the last picture you can see the start of the sloping side showing as the uprights not being exactly parallel and vertical.

It would be cool if the designers of SWFC had a trick up their sleeves and built this thing up to 800 meters.
