i had the feeling cladding won't start before it's nearly topped out, so this is good news

I'm not sure about the inner cladding, but as for the outside cladding I think that there has to be at least two trust belts fully completed before they can start installation. According to this video it seems like they will hang the cladding from one belt and extend it until it reach the trust belt below. I wonder if it really will look like like that. Because if so it will be a very interesting process to watch

Looks like safety netting to protect workers on the "porch".

Well it might be a working platform indeed, which can be lifted up (or down perhaps) to install the facade.

Highly doubt its a working platform, it would be too costly and complicated to raise such a structure vs. a medium sized crane to install the facade of the 'green' sky atrium which rises 10 or so stories.

They all are great. I hope for the "flower" or the "bamboo crown" though.

Looks like from the bottom to the 2nd sky lobby is mainly poured concrete with concrete super columns, whereas above that is mainly steel frame construction. Is this correct?

This is all the same. The "concrete" columns you see are the same steel columns just buried with concrete. The ones above the second sky lobby are going to be covered with concrete too. See the green rectangular nettings/scaffoldings just above second sky lobby? - this is where it's going on right now.

I live near Shanghai, and the two towers right now is pretty epic, since there is fog, you can hardly see the top. The three together feels like a centerpiece of a modern area. Can't wait!

Actually, i hardly see any fog in Shanghai these days. I have direct room view of the towers and almost always i can see the top perfectly.

Thanks. So might we keep an eye on facade substructure soon.
