I don't think we've ever seen a skyscraper with a core as big as that!
The hole is about 110 metres diameter so the core square of steels must be between 25-30 metres per side! There's going to be a lot of lift shafts in that thing!
And the scale is soooo big - one of the photos above that you could see a single worker and he looked like a lego man next to the size of the steels. Somewhere on a previous post it said those steels weight >200 tons!
I'd have thought you could get 4 of the Chicago Spire holes inside this one!

Cruising GIS - didn't think I've seen this render before...

I don't think the black lines will be as prevalent when it's built - they're just the edges of the windows... and I doubt they'll appear black when built

...
and I think this render has slight exagerated the height! Though it might just be caused by the perspective!

The previous 2 pictures are actually quite old..the base of the tower has changed drastically if you view the latest renders. But the tower design has remained the same, though.

I'm curious how they get those 200+ ton steels' to the site? I can't imagine a normal lorry would be able to carry them!
lol someone reposted and translated to chinese your post at abbs.cn where jamyan posts his updates, maybe you wish will be fulfilled

Agreed. I dare to say it is the largest.

The core has a diameter of the size of the green building in the middle.

Its about 380 feet/116 meters wide. For those who are curious the Chicago Spire cofferdam is only about 105-110 feet wide. This baby is huge!

Using Google Earth.

Cheers for doing the work on this - so yes, at least 4 Chicago spires would fit into it - but in terms of actual square footage it must be a lot bigger... ok, some GCSE maths...

Chicago spire area = Pie R squared = 3.14 x (57 x 57) = 10,200 sq ft.
Shanghai Tower = 3.14 x (190 x 190) = 113,354 sq ft

Shangahi Tower has an area 11.1 x bigger than the hole of Chicago Spire - Dam!!!

Haha, We're going nuts when a 116 meter tower gets approved in Amsterdam. And this Godlike building is 116 meters wide
