Don't forget that there will be a second lair of facade that will make the tower look much bigger than it does now

I could see it, however I'm not aware of the current height!


For those who couldn't see could we give Cul a height update?

Hi Cul.

Hard to judge what's behind the forms but I think it is above level 51. 244 meters is the floor of level 52 so the column splice is probably a couple meters below that.

What did you do to that photo to make it look like it came from the other side of the Cultural Revolution?

This is new, right?

Mitsubishi unveils super fast bullet-shaped elevator for the Shanghai Tower



Mitsubishi recently unveiled the mock-up design of its new elevator technology to be used for the currently-in-construction Shanghai Tower in China. Taking on an aerodynamic bullet-shaped form, the elevator can travel at a record-breaking speed of 40.2 mph or roughly 59' per second! In comparison, Burj Khalifa's elevators, can only reach speeds up to 26mph.

Mitsubishi's bullet-like elevator uses a rope made of high-intensity steel strands wrapped in plastic for maximum speed and safety. Aside from being fast, it's also rather green — its motors have the capacity to regenerate electricity, thereby reducing consumption by 30%. Inside the car, various mechanisms minimize vibrations and control air pressure so your ears don't pop while you're traveling upward at that kind of speed.

BTW, read the usual-crappy-idiotic comments at the bottom

It has already been mentioned numerous times that cladding will start at the end of May or beginning of June.

If they are crap comments, why should I waste my effort reading what a few little fascist inbreds who havent travelled the world beyond thier own borders think, they probably spend all day on youtube watching military videos. I also thought Taipei 101 had the same type of lifts going at that speed
