I am assuming that the core is only for the elevators. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Refer to this post for a size comparison as of now.

We're already on the third floor.

Probably won't be until the end of the year, as you need some good space between new construction of floors and the fragile glass. That's purely speculation though.

Tell me about a few floors between the new floors and the fragile glass, here in the Third Worls there's a building called 600 Brickell and it topped out over a year ago but it's still not done. To this day they're still breaking windows on it while working on the interior. One is spiderwebbed right now and a bunch are plywooded over.

I remembered that when SWFC reached 30-40 floors(the core was around 40th fl.), there were about 10 floors with facade installed. Since Nordschleife mentioned ST would reach its 36th fl by the end of this year, I was wondering if we could see some facade before that. But they are different towers, and ST facade is much more complicated, so I guess it probably will take longer to install.

thanks for the pictures. I checked the reports in 2006, they started installing facade on SWFC a few days after the core reached 40th fl. I made a mistake and was thinking of a picture taken in June 2006--one month after the first piece of glass was installed.

Yeah, so we might have the chance to see the cladding this year.

Wow. Look how tiny the core is in the SWFC compared to Shanghai Tower.

Shanghai's changed alot since my 2000 visit. There was only Orieantal Paerl and part of the Jin Mao back then, now we see so many 100m to 300m for km and km's. Wonder if there are still street vendors out at night for shanghai noodles?
