I have no idea what floor it is, but i have heard that there is a sample floor, somewhere between floor 5-10 lol.

I dont think the ceiling nor the floor is finished, just give them a little more time.

Sorry to disappoint you lol, but what the sock said. Also the pictures were not taken by me, they were from weibo, you can find the original link from the bottom left corner of the pictures.

Jinmao is sadly completely overshadowed by ST, I remembered the first time I saw it 12 years ago and was amazed by its size.

Compered to other buildings, Jin Mao looks so averagely sized! Amazing how tall the buildings are in that city! Even the SWFC, the tallest building in the world before Khalifa, looks moderately sized now! It shows how photographs cannot compare with seeing these building in reality.

In my city, I am awed by the tallest building which is 80-something meters.

That's a complicated looking piece of structure being hoisted up there, looks like 8 different connection points that have to line up. I hope it fits.

Same here, our cathedral at a puny 95 meters. Going to major cities always puts things in perspective

I come from the city that is on the banner today, we don't really have tall skyscrapers, our tallest is 89 meters, and there is one planned that is 107 meters, so I cannot imagine how tall this looks! But I really love the looks of it, great project once again, Shanghai!

Floor is probably not finished yet, I'm not so sure about the ceiling. It is very low anyway.
I expected the ceiling height to be bigger.
