I don't think it's for the cladding yet. Or maybe will be used later to install glass, but now they have to finish the steels structure first. It's not completed yet because it couldn't have been until the orange platforms got removed. I think they will first finish the structure and then start with the glass. So We still have to wait some more.

I keep hoping I'll see pics of glass installation every time I check in. Looks like next time may be my lucky day.

Great pics.

I have two questions.

Is there any info on the hotel of the top of the tower. All I know after reading Wiki is that is going to be Jin Jiang Hotel chain. But I don't know how reputable the source is.

This is qouted on Wiki:
Quote:
The Shanghai Tower is planned for completion in 2014,[1] but will be partially opened to the public from 2012.[27]
What does they mean with "partially opened"?
The source is a pay site(!).

They are at 1:30, 4:30, 7:30, 10:30 in the above diagram.
If this diagram is correct, they end at the fifth belt truss.

Probably the mall will be opened before the the tower is fully completed. It was the same case with the mall in Shenzhen's Kingkey 100.

I can't recall more anticipation for a tower's cladding since 1WTC.

That makes sense. Clearly the tower wont be even near to take visitors this year.
