Wow, that is making some fast progress, and that facade looks really light. And nice view of Shanghai. It actually looks a little more "normal" from that angle, it looks kind of like an American city.

What is that glassy looking ring around the core in that picture from above? It looks like a glass floor.

It's a net.

Oh it's a net, I thought that's what it might be. And wow I actually didn't know that the Shanghai Tower was that close to the water. I've never seen a picture of it from that angle, yet.

It's because Shanghai is 99 % flatland, and almost all of the skyscrapers has alot of air between them. So, if you're just walking on the street in Shanghai, the impression will be "where's all the tall buildings I've heard about??". But if you go up like 30 floors in any building, you'll see that there's basically a skyline everywhere.

They are still building the current design, unless they want to rip down the stuff they have already built. You can see structural elements already built to support the old design that would not work with this new design.
