Is that the top of the podium circled in the first picture?

I will be in Shanghai till the 3rd of October. Is there any chance for me to see the cladding coming up before I leave SH?

facade is the outside of a building, yes. Curtain wall is what the glass windows/walls are called

I can't believe how fast this is progressing. The next crane jump must be just round the corner.

Yes a crane jump does indeed seem very close. I love how we can always tell when they're about to jump. It's very suspenseful

I dont get it, there is that huge center concrete core, do all supertalls have this? Seems like it takes up a huge amount of space.

Of course all supertalls have a core. Typically the taller the building the bigger the core because it needs more elevators and communication space.

^Not entirely true, my friend. There are a few supertalls with no core (like One57). A well designed concrete tower can be strong enough with only thick walls and a well designed structure that can take all the gravity load equally. As for the elevators, skylobbies should resolve that space problem.

@eycel, take a look to this typical floorplan.

Structural strenght and stability as well .

I read some pages back in this thread supercolums would reach the core at an specific height... what height?

I am wondering, how are you able to figure out that a crane jump is very close? And, what exactly is a crane jump?

I too can't wait to see how the cladding turns out based on the renderings I've seen. But, unfortunately, I also know that architectural renderings tend to be shot through rose tinted glasses. Guess we'll find out soon...

My bad. Yeah, I now figured this out. However typiclly such high towers would have a core.
