One can read this as "61F will be finished early october", i.e it will take 100 days to achieve floors 51-61.

I think its slowing but not stopping, due to additional work at this 51-61 height.

Maybe I'm wrong,

but maybe I'm right


Pics from Oriental Pearl Tower are great!

Agreed - the vents appear to be on the floor where the diagonal beam meets the vertical corner column. I can only guess we'll see the same thing at the next section too.
