2014 is pushing it. They'll have to bust it late that year to get it done. I think, if there is an observatory, that it will open in early 2015.

I just use the one I saw Skyscraperpage (YOUTUBE] link here [/YOUTUBE - I didn't put [brackets] around both sides so you could see it, but you'll have to do that when you post.).

But you don't use the whole link, just the last part, with the letters and numbers (FVgyOZJKgvo in the case of your link).

Thanks, guys. I think I will plan to go to Shanghai in 2015 just be safe because I want to see this beautiful tower once it is completed and open to the public.

Great shots lowai, looks like the outter skeleton support has reached the second truss belt before the cladding did.
