Hey every body! I made a new video on the Shanghai tower, tell me if any of the facts are incorrect and I'll modify it.

Should have a classic butchered English translation like "Double Happiness Super China Dragon Fortune Tower" or something like that.

I love how Jin mao almost completely covers SWFC in the pic above.

ST really starting to make an impact. I assume the tower will look bulky once the external cladding is started.

It is coming on magnificently, and the cranes have done their jump again. (I wonder how they do it - maybe with jacks.)

The way I see it, they must do the inner and outer cladding together, for each level. The yellow platform is under the first 'outer ring', so it cannot go back up.
