The synchrony between the outer glass skin going up and the support structure going down is unbelievable!

Fifth super truss structure going fast too.

Wow just a little while before the core surpasses Jin Mao, probably less than 2 months. Shanghai will have a new second tallest building.

Is the crane height higher than Jin Mao spire? Looks like easily with those last pics by little universe, but that could just be the angle.

No this is really how it is, also from other angles the cranes are already much higher. From a couple of angles you cannot even see the Jin Mao anymore, quite bizar. Nice pics!

Awesome pix. There are many skyscraper cities in China but it's hard to match the sheer class and beauty of Shanghai and also, Hong Kong

Amazing building but the ceiling and flooring look second-rate to be honest.
