it is at about 20 residential stories now (referring to the white towers to the left of the picture)
its been about 17 weeks since the core passed ground level so thats more than one story per week (of course residential floors are shorter)
is was said months ago that they were aiming for 12-15 levels by the end of the year, does any one know if shanghai tower is behind or ahead of schedule?

Looks like they are ready to install a 3rd crane to the core.

Now it's hard to make out which ones are the super columns, or if those are even visible. Are those the small dark rectangles, such as the isolated ones on the left side?

Hi Drew.



Of course the top 2 are hidden by the core.

Happy New Year all.

Thanks for the accurate clarification Fury. I wonder when they are starting the regular floorplates? Seeing the core is nice but only after they start the actual floors is what causes the best excitement to watch the progress.

First:Happy new year.

Lock's like new support for tower cranes on the 2 free core sites.
If the 4 tower cranes ready, we will see the 12 super columns rising. Then comes the first floor plate and so on..

Lock at the last pic. In the middle of the free site I see a crane support.
And the yellow frames are the next core connectors.
What I still miss, are the new crane parts itself.
