Hi Sock.

The new columns up today are levels 33 and 34. The floor of level 35 is at 163.85. So with the column splice we are at approx 165.5 meters.

Levels 35 and 36 are them third belt truss levels.
Great progress.


Ray.

I was there last October, the energy of the place was cold and sad. The tall buildings need some friends on the ground. The center of the biggest city in China is surprisingly empty.

In Chinese cities (unlike American cities) the CBDs aren't the city center. Shanghai's center is around People Square in Puxi.
But of course I would like to see more street-level interaction in Lujiazui, too.

Yeah and in Beijing, its the tiananmen area. Pretty strange how we are so used to CBD's being the central area in most cities

It's mainly to do with the size of cities. If a city is small (say, 1-2 million people) there is no need to spread things out. It can have its single compact downtown/CBD/center which can accommodate all institutions and objects without generating any side effects such as traffic jams or overcrowded public transport. There aren't that many big cities in the US, hence CBD typically means the main urban center. NYC, Chicago and perhaps LA are rather exceptions and settled their urban fabric long ago. They could benefit from multi-centered development but it's too late and the public wouldn't allow it while the government won't try to break the ice and go against the public opinion. Chinese cities, on the other hand, grew and keep on growing much later and they are much bigger, hence having a single 'main' center/CBD/downtown is not a sustainable solution. There are multiple centers, cbds etc. which spread out the flows of people and traffic. Chinese are simply implementing the most efficient way of planning there current;y is. Also, seemingly there is much less of a burden from the side of the population which would typically oppose any large scale developments in the Western countries so compromising sustainable and efficient urban development which results in chronic traffic and other transport problems.
