This is definately one of the most amazing skyscrapers under construction - it's so much more massive than anything else out there. The Dubai ones are a lot thinner - this is truly enormous. It must have more floor area than Burj Dubai (now Khalifa). Looking forward to the next photos from Jin Mao!

It's formwork decking for the suspended slab.
I'm not familiar with construction techniques, do you mean those huge steel columns are just molds for liquid cement, and will be removed eventually?

although these three towers are one street away, since they are so wide, it actually makes them look quite nice.

Speaking of SWFC - any more shots from it or Jin Mao looking down the hole? We need more spies!
