Thanks for the update! Good to see they're still progressing well! Indeed I'm also curious what they're working on atm? Without any foundation under these walls it can't be something structural I guess...

So look closer at the recent photo. You still think that CANT be the structural part of the tower? Remember that that is a very unique project, and maybe it will be constructed in unique way...

I haven't seen any Shanghai Tower yet, so it's unique indeed! Every building is unique and constructed in a unique way. But without any foundation this tower (and any tower or even a small house!!) will sink and fall down. I hope you understand that....

The picture is a bit unsharp, but the constructed walls look like about 1,5 meters high and when you look closely the equipment behind them might be using them as a kind of pooles, looking at the piping etcetera. I'm not sure but they might be used for the piling process or something? I'm just guessing.

Yep, im guessing too, but I believe you do understand what I mean saying unique (you really dont have to tell me that every buliding must have fundations )

I thought Shanghai was going to limit skyscrapers because Pudong is sinking due to the weight of all the skycrapers being built?

I saw a photo of this BEFORE anything else was on site and no I do not think this is ANY structural part of the new tower. I would try and explain further than I already have, but at this point I think it would be pointless for me to do so.

Oh we will see. I'm just speculating. But I really doubt it was there before. Just notice that it is circular in exacly the same way like the foot of new tower is, coincidence? But if you have some photos please post it. Maybe it really is coincidence, who knows

They should close the roads between the 3 x 400m+ towers.

Now I'm not supposed to reveal this, but I'm tired to keep the secret... not only the foundation is already done, but the whole skyscraper is fully complete, it's buried just below the concrete in the pic, and ready to be pushed up by a hydraulic system. The surprise inauguration will be on january 25.
