THose colored poles are probably temporary support for the belt truss. It's too big to lift in one piece so they will have to assemble it in place.

The last picture shows just how massive SWFC is. Hard to believe that such a huge thing will soon be dwarfed by an even more massive building. It will be an awe-inspiring sight.

Not necessarily, SWFC is actually bigger, just not as tall.

ST is estimated to yield 1million more sqft than SWFC.

^Yes. IIRC, SWFC's base is 59 by 59 meters. Shanghai Tower's base has a diameter of 95 meters. Both buildings get smaller as they go up, so I'm pretty sure that Shanghai Tower has more floorspace

Is one counting underground floor area and one not? I thought SWFC had 5 million, and ST was gonna have a little over 4. Yeah, it must be counting the ST's nearly 2 million below ground floor area.

Wait, SWFC only has four, so they're almost tied until you add the giant basement floors of the ST, which I guess should count, since they will probably be more occupable than normal basement floors, presumably, as below grade levels are usually not counted as floor space.

ST has a lot of empty space. Think about all the area that is open between each sky lobby.

Yea, ST is 6 million total, 2 below and 4 above grade. I think SWFC has .5 or less below and 3.6 above or something like that. Most of the SWFC basement is used for parking, only two floors contain retail spaces, and those that do have very little total area dedicated to shop space. I remember reading somewhere that the first 4 floors of the building (B2,B1,2,3) contain 16,000sq m of space.
