Hi all.

Just the core or not ...
This thing is really making an impression now.

All the work going on outside the original 'hole' will soon make the circle indecipherable.

Great project.


Ray.

Incredible, there's already more concrete and steel than there is in most high-rises in my hometown of Montreal.

Once the first floor goes up, we'll have a good idea of how massive this structure really is!

Can't wait to see this structure rise.

They will build a hotel on the top floors of the building, which will be the world's highest hotel once it is completed, the name of the hotel is "Shanghai Central J Hotel".

Anyone could explain to me since everything they are doing now is make the circle "indecipherable", why did they dig it like this at the first?

J Hotel is a new brand marketed by Shanghai's Jinjiang group, it will be managed by Intercontinental.



新华网上海12月18日电(记者吴宇)预计4年后竣工、目前中国规划中的第一高楼——632米高的上海中心将诞生世界最高酒店,中国企业将乘势打造一个全新的世界顶级酒店品牌。

这一全球迄今已建和在建高楼中最高的酒店,被命名为“上海中心J酒店”,规划在总计有121层的上海中心的第84层至110层,拥有258间(套)客房。

18日,上海锦江国际酒店(集团)股份有限公司(简称锦江集团)与上海中心大厦建设发展有限公司在此间签署合资协议,决定各出资一半打造“上海中心J酒店”,并委任州际(中国)酒店和度假村有限公司进行运营管理。

据锦江集团首席执行官杨伟民介绍,借世界最高酒店新创立的“J”品牌,不仅是锦江旗下最顶级的品牌,也将成为全球领先酒店中的一员。从上海起步,“J”品牌酒店未来将在中国一线城市的标志性建筑中扩展10-12家。

他强调,“J”品牌酒店将客户定位于“企业首席执行官”这一特殊群体,软硬件服务将引领时代之先。

上海中心大厦建设发展有限公司总经理顾建平告诉新华社记者,针对大众关心的高层建筑安全问题,上海中心将其作为一个体系性问题,委托国际相关机构从消防、物业管理中可能出现的应急问题以及反恐等三个层面作了专门的评估,安全保卫覆盖了设计、施工、运营管理各个阶段。

“我们不刻意追求施工进度,而是要确保安全和质量。上海中心预计2014年底或2015年初竣工开业。”顾建平说。

据顾建平介绍,从现有规划看,位于浦东陆家嘴的上海中心建成后,将超过其邻近的492米高的上海环球金融中心以及台北508米高的101大楼,成为中国第一高楼。虽然其高度不如今年初落成的828米高的世界第一高楼——迪拜“哈利法塔”,但“哈利法塔”中的酒店位于建筑下部,“上海中心J酒店”仍是全球迄今已建和在建高楼中最高的酒店。

Hi Nord.

I have been wondering about the construction method for this and the Ping An project for months now.

Here they excavated for the main structure, did a conventional bottom to top proceedure inside the hole, and appear to have to do a top down method for the podium outside of it.

For Ping An they did a top down approach for the podium leaving holes for the main structures where they appear to have to do a conventional method inside the holes.

For both projects it seems a full excavation of the entire podium and a conventional method would make more sense and be less complicated.

Not sure about Ping An, but for this project there is a benefit to the method. They can work down on the outside of the hole at the same time as they work up on the main structure.


Ray.

When measured from the lowest underground level to the top, what will be the true height of this beautiful monster?
