Great shots of the site ... this looks just about ready to start the main build now. Not far off anyway.

Hi all.

Nice update Severiano.

It sure does look like a partially covered grid of many piles alright.
Looks like excavation soon.

They will need some time to finish the slurry wall before there can be digging...

Whatever they build in Pudong, it will never steal the spotlight from Oriental Pearl Tower....

Upwards revision to 680m on the way? Well, don't make a big fuss, but it may be under study. Actually many press releases are quoting this height on the latest news.

680m would be unreal! Even if not true, this tower will still be spectacular at 632m

Please not higher. The current height is perfect and will fit in excellently with the other 2 towers

I still say it looks like a spring roll! Granted, it's a tad elongated and a little out shape but without doubt, this is the most expensive spring roll in history!
