Hi, fury.
The levels behind the forms are level 20, 21, 22, that's right.
But the columns on top are just over the floor of level 24.

It might cause some confusion for the reason that the height of level 19(trading floor) and 20(equipment floor) and 22(sky garden/lobby floor) are 5.2m, 5.5m and 5.5m, instead of the regular 4.5m.

I can't wait to see it towering over Jin Mao and the WFC. It already is one of the most notable places in the world.

Hi Nord.

You may be right - only 2 levels behind the forms. Looking closer the 2 belt truss levels (6 and 7) are about the same height as the form and the 2 levels of the next belt truss are the ones behind the form (20 and 21). To clear up any confusion, I don't count the 'fence' on the top of the form when I guess at the number of levels behind the form. Reason being because before any new columns are put up, the levels behind the form are below said 'fence'.

That would make the double level columns on top, those of levels 22 and 23 with the splice just above the floor of level 24.

Thanks for pointing that out.


Ray.

I had missed this thread for a long time... the progress is clearly visible. I think this tower is the icing on the cake for this trio of towers (Oriental Pearl,. World Financial Center and Jin Mao) and will make the Shangai's skyline to look even more spectacular.

I actually have my doubt as to whether they will reach that far by the end of the year. Very nice diagram nonetheless!

It actually looks really simple. It looks like an overexposed picture, too.
