Yep...and finally I think we can put to rest the thought that those older walled off areas are a part of the foundation work for this tower. You can clearly see a few spots where the walls are no longer perfect....something a crew would never do to a part of the overall structure. Aside from that they appear to be full of mud.

I am surprised they didn't clear the site first, but I expect we'll see those areas disappear fairly quickly.

Great detailled photo Zorg. If you look more closely tot the photo it becomes more and more clear how big everything on this site is.
For example look at the rebar for the slurrywall on the right sight of the photo. Comparing to the 2 man standing in front of the big crane the slurrywalls must be around 50 meters.

The red handdrawn circle indicates the permimeter of the wall. Does anybody knows the purpose of the "boxes" just on the inside of the slurrywallcircle?

The bassins are holding the liquid used for constructing the slurry wall (Dig a hole - fill it with liquid so that the hole doesn't collapse - put in the rebar - pump concrete in it - re-use the liquid). They are there since the begin of 2009, so 6 months already... Hopefully they're done with it soon!

are they going to dig a hole ( like the WTC site) after the retaining wal is completed? and is there going to be some underground parking?

It would take at least a year before it starts rising. Mainly because pudong soil is not very strong and it can only take a pressure of 8 tonnes/sqaure metre . So What the builders do is they dig really really deep and make a huge strong solid concrete cubiod beneath teh skyscraper and punch poles into this concrete and build skyscraper on it. Like imagine you are in a wet dough what You do is take a huge hard cubiod shaped bread peice and place it on the wet dough and then puncture this bread peice with poles and use those as the load bearers on which you build the buildings . Incase of pudong it just takes lot more work to get teh foundation right say when compared to a place like shenyang of tianjin so it would take a while before the foundation is done . Lets behonest this si a 630 metre building the foundation has to be insanely strong.

what are you talking about ? there are plans for 1600 m tall towers and you are telling me that a merely 600m tower needs and insanely strong foundation ? ... If you are talking about 3000m or a 5000m tower now that is something that needs an insanely strong foundation

Yep, a 600m tower in Pudong, where the soil is not as strong as areas where they build 1600m towers, then they need a really strong foundation.

Thats true you have to imagine that pudong and other parts of shanghai have a really muddy underground. Just look at those super big foundations for the monorail... Its insane to build such foundations for such a small structure. But i still do not expect anything special to be involved here.
