You can see a little bit of the ST next to the girl's shoulder.

Guess you haven't seen the blond chicks with 24 sticks of crayons on their face huh. Or how about those white emo chicks with 50 piercings on their body? Should I generalize?

Urgh, for some reason these pictures make it seem like construction has hardly moved forward. At any rate, I count 9 or 10 floors difference between the two photos.

hardly any progress?? i was thinking more of epic progress, making 10 floors of that size is amazingly fast by the end of the year the tower should be nearly 50 floors at this rate

Ten floors in two months is indeed very good for a building this size.

Holy mother of god. I didn't check this thread in two months, and it's already a beast. This perimeter walls are massive.

Well they had to work on the truss belt, which is a pain in the ass I'm sure ;P
But this last truss belt was constructed much faster then the first one. They have been making great progress.

Ok maybe I'm underestimating how fast that progress really is in relative terms, but one thing's for sure: if they continue at the pace of 10 floors/2 months, they won't have built 50 floors by Christmas. I assume that construction is marginally slower when going higher; in addition the weather will be less favourable in the coming months, which could also modestly slow construction, so I don't see them managing more than 10 more by the 1st of January. But we can have a wager. I'd be just as happy if I lose the bet :P

I was looking at shanghai on google earth and somebody has put this up while it's under construction, complete with cranes.

What is the current height of the core? It looks to be more then half the height of Jin Mao, but that can't be right, can it?
