I was going to comment on that, but then I didn't like the omens for that post of mine that put it on the 1000th page - look at the time I posted (4:44 AM)!

Looking forward to see the tower all lighten up, the fact that the top is hidden by the clouds is scary

Yes, I think we can say it is officially topped out now....



Shanghai Tower reaches full height of 632 meters

The Shanghai Tower, currently the world's second-largest skyscraper, reached its full height of 632 meters as the final beam was hoisted atop the 137-floor building's 20-story crown structure yesterday, Shanghai Daily reports.

The three-meter beam tied with a red ribbon was lifted by a crane on top of the skyscraper. Its crown features a sightseeing platform and a park which will include a 2,000 square-meter screen and lighting system for laser shows.


A new high! Tower gets crowning glory

SHANGHAI Tower reached its full height of 632 meters yesterday, with the final beam placed on top of its 20-story crown structure.

A crane on top of the skyscraper hoisted the final 3-meter beam — tied with a red ribbon for the occasion — from the ground and carefully lowered it into position.

The crown includes a sightseeing platform at the 560-meter mark and floors for power and telecommunications equipment.

It also features a state-of-the-art damping system to stabilize the 137-floor skyscraper.

The 15 billion yuan (US$2.42 billion) tower in the Lujiazui financial hub in the Pudong New Area is the world’s second-tallest building — surpassed only by Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which soars to 829.8m.

However, it will slip to third-tallest in 2016, with the completion of the 660-meter Ping’an International Financial Center in Shenzhen, in the southern province of Guangdong.

He could, but would get expelled again from China, like when he climbed Jin Mao

First Ping An, then Wuhan Greenland and Kingdom Tower + Zhongnan Center. So, the ST will be only on the 6th place in a few years. And these won't be the last which will rise above 632m in the near future.

That's why the emphasis has to be on design rather than height. A building's ranking on the tallest buildings list is only temporary, but design is forever. The Chrysler Building isn't among the world's tallest anymore, but it's certainly still among the most beautiful!

I hope they put a rollercoaster at the top. It will be a little surprise for the people of Shanghai.
