On topic: From the video, I believe it stated that the bottom part of the building will be in operation before the whole tower is completed.
My dad is from Canton and speaks Cantonese as his first language, and because of that he speaks Mandarin just as fast.

It was interesting to see how the core form rises. I knew it worked like that, but not all of the nitty gritty details like that.

A total of 12 stages.

We are at Stage 4 now.
At Stage 5: the core will reach the 36th story, the Super columns will be at 27th story, and the installation of outer glass facade will begin.

Not sure if this has been posted before. This is is an animated walk-thru video from the underground subway station all the way to the top observatory level. A view from the J Hotel room window is also included.

Amazing video! This building is so complex to construct, especially the crown with the removal and installation of all the different cranes! Despite the Chinese being slow I could understand only maybe 50%
Maybe it's because of all the technical jargon...

^Wow that third video is great ^.^

The beginning reminded me almost of an alien invasion movie lol

What were the lights going up the V-notch near the end of the video?

And does anyone know the music used?

Some one thousand construction workers of Shanghai Center Tower remain at their posts despite the canicule in Shanghai.
