Inauguration - 10 01 = 6 years / 2 months
Completion 11 ?? = 7 years / ? months

I know - I'm **** .....

The pace seems to be very fast so I would also say the ST will be completed in less time than the BK.

Yes but the excavation that was started at that time was not just for the tower but the mall and the lake too. It was basically site levelling and stuff for a wider complex.

Erm i have always been wondering what do those orange blocks represent? does it mean the concrete is waiting to be filled inside, or the concrete has already been filled but waiting to dry?

They don't fill the blocks, instead they just lay the rebar on it and between the gap, then pour the concrete on it. In the end the blocks will be removed.

Oh yea that makes sense, if they filled the orange boxes then pretty much the whole basements would have been concrete LOL. Thanks!

3 of Shanghai's tallest are near each other. That is a smart move

Now that it's above ground we'll get a lot more updates, since people no longer need to be in one of the adjacent towers to take a picture.

Hi all.

I imagine the next sections of the supercolumns are being connected.

As I posted before, the drawings seem to indicate the basement levels (all 5 of them) are to be much larger than the hole. It will be interesting to see how they will accomplish this.

The podium will be 7 levels high by the looks of it. Whether that will be level 6 and a ground level remains to be seen. I have no info on how they will enumerate the levels for this project. I find it interesting how various projects differ wildly in their approach to this.

Up to the top of the podium is zone 1. I posted some time ago that their are 8 zones but there are 9 as the elaborate structural top is above the highest 2 mechanical levels and is therefore called its own zone.

Sorry for the On-Topic ...
