Not sure, depends on how they actually attach the cladding I guess. Just have to wait and see.

Does anyone have any recent pictures looking down on Shanghai Tower from the public observation deck of Jin Mao tower, at 340 m?

Where, on these pictures, are:
height 300 m
height 304,8 m (1000 feet)
height 316 m halfway to top)?

I know it's convenient for people to ask the question rather than search the forums for it. But try it sometime. Man, that is like the millionth time someone has asked. It's in the "Skyscrapers" section, I forget its name though. I'm sure someone will dutifully answer it for you.

The building under construction next to Shanghai Tower is Oriental Financial Center.

I'm pretty sure interior cladding's going on first.

If I remember right someone mentioned that actually the exterior will go first. I know the intuition suggest the opposite, but this is how they will apparently do id.

Why be awkward? in the effort/time it took you to write that response you could've just answered his question. but back to the tower.

well I actually It makes sense when they start doing the outside first. because when the outside is done it is much safer and convenient to finish up the interiors.

Although you would wonder how they will easily transport inner glass for all the floors when the exterior cladding is in place But maybe they will transport all the panels (ext and int) first, or they can always transport it with elevators.
