Yesterday it was a giant hole on the ground, and today it's a fifteen-story circular structure. The most challenging structural engineering building ever. Hope that the truss won't hang out too much when completed.

It's quite mindblowing what they're doing here, and great to watch. Thanks to all the photographers and nordshleife for posting the pics.

Hi all.

Those of us that are following this project closely know what level the core is up to. For the rest, they had put level markers on the green netting for a while but not right on the concrete core. Now they are no longer putting up the netting because they are using the jump form. They have begun to put markers on the podium levels and will continue this practise as the steel work is done for each level, I think.
The crane supports are a good indication of the level number of the core. They were/are placed at levels 4, 8, 13, and now 18. The next belt truss levels are 20, 21 and the next radial truss level is 21. We shall see is those change the levels the supports end up on, or if they stay with the pattern of 5 levels (ie: 23, 28, 33, etc.).

So right now the top support is at level 18 and we can add 2 to get an idea what level they are at behind the jumpform (untill they put up new columns that stick up above the form) - so the core is 20 levels high.

Just some thoughts for those interested in knowing what level the core is up to.


Ray.

Its always nice to have a comparison before and after, you will find SWFC is totally blocked from this angle

On the other hand, ST will be blocked by SWFC or Jin Mao from another angle. That's the only negative side of building three supertalls next to each other. Well, at least this is also something that makes these giants so truly unique in the world.

Nice picture updates.

easily the best render i have ever seen of ST the tower at present looks like it has a long way to go before it looks like the render but anyway at this pace it could take at least 4-6 years to be complete

Depends how you see it really. If the picture was taken from century park, ie Jin Mao and SWFC being at the front, you will see ST in the middle, ie in between the two towers. Its only from certain angles do they really cover each other

This picture really shows the height of it I think

- nightshot picture -

I can't believe that ST will be over 100m taller than SWFC!
i think i just jizzed in my pants.
