Then I guess it's a matter of my lack of language skills By truss I meant the skygarden levels triangular structure outside the circle.

It looks like the core needs to rise one more level then they can attach the new brackets and jump the cranes.

You're right, but maybe they have to install the attachment for the next truss section ( chance the scaffolding ).
That's why it takes a little bit longer as an regular core level.

The ironic thing about these pictures is that they make Jin Mao and SWFC look like normal towers surrounding the 'main'/'centre piece' tower/landmark. That's how awesome buildings in shanghai really are

This photo actually shows SWFC's real height, in a lot of photos SWFC feels a lot shorter than its actual height.

Yeh SWFC does seem so huge in real life, probably because it is pretty much 500m of building/glass - there are no spires and at least from straight ahead (or behind) the building doesn't really appear to narrow as it gets higher.

This picture really shows the height of it I think

I can't believe that ST will be over 100m taller than SWFC!

Notice how in the above two pictures Jin Mao isn't in them (or at least that much of them). Maybe having Jin Mao right next to it is what makes the SWFC appear "short".

But on topic with ST, it seems like a day or two more before the cranes jump
