It is. There is one sidewalk you can stand on and be between all three supertalls. When you stand next to JMT, realise it is taller than the ESB, and then look at the two much taller ST across the street, it is a very impressive sight.

They're progressing quite good, so cladding should be completed quite soon

It literally feels like yesterday they were finishing up the observatory cladding.. in fact, when did they start installing crown cladding? I can't believe I never noticed it.

The crown cladding looks la lot more like the body cladding than I imagined, though. The renderings pretty much showed a transparent crown.

Here is something unusual for a change: Did you know that you can see Cologne Cathedral just behind Shanghai Tower?

Well today I have been in Cologne and for today’s Chinese Festival in Cologne they built a 360 degrees panorama of Shanghai Tower, seen from JinMao Tower. And if you look from the centre of that panorama towards Shanghai Tower then you will see the silhouette of the Cathedral just behind Shanghai Tower.
