What's with some of the Brits coming onto the page and talking politics? There's a place to talk about whether or not China's economy is staged to a degree and whether there are ghost cities (I think both are true)...but it's not here.

On topic: This tower is really, really cool. When finished, Shanghai's central skyline will remind me of the SimCity boxes, which often had three super tall buildings clustered together in the center of the city.

I suppose, but I don't know what there's to be jealous about. London is arguably the best city on the planet. There's really no need to get worked up about Shanghai haha

If you ever see a British newspaper or news site talking about China, I would 100% recommend not to read it. I can understand why they come here to talk politic and give opinions.

Anyway, Ping'an International Finance Centre is using the same massive cranes being used on Shanghai Tower. Both projects having the same magnitude. Can't wait for it to start taking shape like Shanghai Tower.

Same could be said about (local) Hong Kong newspapers. Noone bashes China more than Cantonsese people do. And I'm one of them lol.

Nice progress btw, the tower is already visible from various viewpoints.

I'm surprised there's not much information about the giant power generator to be built on top of the tower.

If it's true that it would be some kind of giant wind turbine within a building as I understand, then more credit should be given to Shanghai Tower. If I remember correctly, there's another super tall in China having built-in wind turbines to self generate power. Just can't think of the name at the moment.

China races to construct world's second tallest skyscraper

SHANGHAI, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Work crews have completed the foundation for the world's second tallest building one month ahead of schedule and are now rushing to construct the ground structure of the 632-meter Shanghai Tower, second only to the 828-meter-tall Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Located in China's financial hub of Shanghai, the building is expected to grow by 400 meters next year, with an average of seven days spent on the construction of each floor, said Kong Qingwei, board chairman of the development firm Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Co. Ltd.

Kong said Wednesday that it took three years to complete the foundation, and he estimated it will take another three to finish the ground structure.

Once completed, the Shanghai Tower will be the tallest structure in China as well as a new Shanghai landmark alongside the 420.5-meter Jin Mao Tower and the 492-meter Shanghai World Financial Center. The three skyscrapers in Shanghai's Lujiazui Financial Zone will be connected by subways.

Kong said the Shanghai Tower will be a "vertical city" as it will house hotels, offices, malls and other facilities and will be capable of holding more than 50,000 people.

It's interesting to see how small the cranes look now, yet the same model crane on the ping an thread is absolutely massive.

One of my favorite super supertalls going up. Can't believe this is nearly as tall as the Tokyo Sky Tree!
