I'm guessing they are adding two cranes to aid the construction of the surrounding structure as well as the core. Four cranes to the core itself I think is too much, they'd only be in each other's way.

Looks like the construction will be like:

1. Core steel
2. Scaffolding to cover core with concrete
3. Jumping cranes follow the core
4. Supercolumns steel
5. Covering supercolumns with concrete?
6. Regular floor plates
7. Facade, MEP, etc.

Are those orange columns laying on the ground going to represent how big the first floor plate is going to be?

Lujiazui still feels sterile and cold during the best of working hours, and at other times practially dead, what a waste of a location that had potential to be a vibrant centre.
As far as I'm concerned. Lujiazui is no worse than Canary Wharf in London as far as street life/urban design goes. Besides, Lujiazui still does have some pretty good streetlife on the periphery, near the Superbrand Mall/Oriental Pearl/Aquarium.

Hi all.

Hi guys.
Here is an overlay done by Patrykus.



The basement levels and podium are bigger than the hole by the looks of the drawings but the main structure does fit within the original excavation. The floorplan in the overlay is level 9 but the ground level is only slightly larger.

Great to see the supercolumns being extended and the addition of 2 cranes.


Ray.

So the floor plates are smaller than those orange steel bars laying on the ground because in that drawing the floor is smaller than the hole and orange steel bars represents the size of the hole?

I think the orange steel bars ( going off before they build the floor plate ) are only to support the yellow crawler cranes, which handle the first parts of super columns.

Btw for me, it's the best construction site with afford surprises by far.

Canary Wharf is definitely worse than City and West End, however roads in the core area are built to human scale, there do exist boutique shops and eateries opening onto roads and squares, and the DLR and docks do make some interesting streetscapes. Besides the shopping centre, albeit underground does cater for all social-economic classes.

Street life near the Superbrand Mall/Oriental Pearl/Aquarium is acceptable, but given the size of Lujiazui I think we need much more streetlife in the core areas.

Four cranes at the core It really shows the magnitude of the project, even burj had just three way less powerfull cranes at the core. I think after they will be done with installing cranes they will start work on the levels around the core. And they will surely do it fast with such a support

I have doubts that new crane is M1280D.
It looks like M900D...

It's ZSL2700, M1280D's Chinese counterpart…

Amazing picture.

So these cranes will rise with the core?
