Hi all.

Hi hsc.
I was going to mention the appreciation for any shots - Pat beat me to it.
They look great to me ...

The forms look complete but I think my post yesterday stating they must be close to the pour was in error.
There looks to be a whole lot of rebar still to be placed.

Or am I getting something wrong here?
Hi Mibome.
I noticed that also.
Not sure what to make of that as the wider basement levels are drawn twice as wide as the hole is now - that would be much wider than the entire site ...
Perhaps there will be a top down process happening on the outside of the current hole that will be out to the edge of the site at some point ?

Hi Fury,

Great to see you following this thread as close as you are following BD's!

Small note from me: those pics were from "last week", so the big pour actually might be coming soon as you said before (hopefully).

speaking of iconic SWFC, i think although this one will be taller, it won't be as cool and unique as the SWFC, it is just so simple and yet awesome. Another thing is that the SHanghai Tower so unrealistic is in the renders. At least i can't imagine how it will look like when it's finally built. Nevertheless i love this building

hsc: Hey I also visited the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum two days ago

Here are some pictures of the rendering (I resized them so people with not-so-good processors could view them), but I just took them with a 6 megapixel DC anyway, lol.

it really is a giant isn't it, look how it dwarfs what was previously the tallest buiding in the area, Jin Mao (not counting Oriental Pearl). Makes it look like a midget!

Hi Dennis.
Thanks man - yes this is one of the now 15 projects I am watching and collecting pics/info of. Awesome project.

Yes the shots from hsc are from the 16th.
The shots from jamyan from the 22nd do look closer to the pour from what we can see.

Dear oliver999, could you please send me or publish the link to the album or the name of the flickr user because I would like to see if I can find this beautiful areal view of Shanghai in a higher resolution.

Thanks.

dear oliver999,

谢谢 thank you for your response. I saw earlier in this very thread some more nice areal views of this amazing city. It is a city like out of this world. When I did my trip to Shanghai I could walk for hours with speechless admiration, and had a stiff neck by the time I returned back to my hotel, or cured my blisters on my feet in the tranquil Yu Gardens enjoying these delicious soup filled dumplings, like this:

I believe you live in China. Lucky you.
