Even if this will not be the tallest in China, it will certainly be the most memorable in China with the double skin and sky garden designs. The design is just breathtaking, I like the design more than any other buildings that are currently under construction.

the funnel on top is just the way its top was terminated. it will house the plantrooms ect.it achieves another 65m in height for overall structure, so it will be incredbile sight at night.
thanks for constant updates kix111

its nothing.
1. The Chrysler Building is around half the height
2. The Chrysler Building remains one of the most recognizable skyscrapers.

Are you one of those people who thinks 'the bigger, the better'? Because without the quality, a building could be as tall as it likes but it's still crap. Luckily, this building has both the height and quality. Just look at Dubai. Loads of huge buildings, but 90% of them are poor.

I wish you would be more specific, but I'm guessing you're referring to the building in the lower right corner that is u/c (two cranes attached to it). That building is part of the Shanghai IFC project and will house a W Hotel upon completion.

Foundation Construction Explained

Watch this short movie about construction of Jin Mao Tower that explains the intricacies of constructing a skyscraper in Pudong and you will understand what the construction workers are doing now and why they are not digging yet. Basically they have to first build a thin but deep circular concrete wall around the edge of the future foundation hole since ground water is just 1 meter below the surface. Once they build the wall, they can pump the water out of the hole and start digging.
