Now they are working on the next floor, and simultaneously installign supercolumns. That may take time up to september. Then on the beginning of the september they will still have to build two levels, thats up to two months. So I think it can easly rise above the street level even allready on the beginning of december. But we have to wait and see to be sure. Time will tell.

Anyways heres new update from jamyan, abbs.cn

Those new columns already look like they are peaking above street level, though that may be an optical illusion due to the perspective.

If you look at the right side of the picture you can see that they are just under ground level by comparing the column to the crane platform.

At this point of the development, it looks like they are building a big baseball stadium!

I love watching the progress on this one. I started following the SWFC construction when it was already halfway up. Now I get to see this one from start to finish.

It would almost fit in there. Despite its width, the tower will not look bulky but very slender when finished.

Probably wouldn't end well if you tried running around the bases on a floor covered in rebar...

Groundwork taking shape nicely!! I'll be in Shanghai on Wednesday and I can't wait to check out the progress myself! I guess in a few months time the core will be rising at breakneck speeds and I can't even imagine how this thread will be utterly inundated with updates!
