How many days per floor are they building it??

It is faster the burj dubai, so it is absolutely faster than 1 week per floor.

It's sunny more than you think, but there is always smog on sunny days.

most of the time it's the high humid that makes shanghai unclear. there are not very many 100% clear days. special in the month june and july it is hot and humid and not clear.

Except when there is fog, humidity itself doesn't black out the sky. :p If it looks like smog, it probably is smog.

the taper began quite a bit ago, its just that its a very slow taper, so its hard to discern. Quite a beautiful building though. I'm a big fan of this one.

I hope it'll be finished next time I go to Shanghai!
BTW, I went to Shanghai this Monday, but the rendering outside the construction site look different from the renderings I've seen before, the hole (square or circle) has disappeared, is that true?
