Wow, now that's what I call a beautiful super-tall!

And it's the first time I see cranes rising like that, i.e. at all four sides of the core rather than at the center... What's the difference with the "usual" mode of construction then, just to ask?

Yes st will have observatory. In fact tallest in the world in both open and closed category at a height of 546m. Almost 100m taller than burj kahlifa observatory.

Here's the render showing the observation deck:

Probably the tallest building that will remain with huge floor plates throughout its entire length, unlike Burj Khalifa, the top quarter if it being a glorified spire.

Incomprehensible and unnecessarily violent movie. Off topic to refer to it here...

Those are supposed to be sky bridges between the towers.

very good movie, i also realized that there was no shanghai tower although the skyline was only visible for a few shots it was clearly visible and i had to smirk that they didn't quite think that one thru, but amazing movie nontheless, would have liked to see Shanghai skyline in 2070 aswell, since the movie was switching back and forth between the 30 year intervals

Burj Khalifa is WEAK compared to the ST,, the top 1/4 is unusable, they were just going for mesmerizing height, they got it but ST will be much finer, and usable. And as for the poster, I still don't see ST,, I see SWFC which is a 1/4 shorter.. Bu in the post it's taller with all kindsof crazy stuff going on... Why do boats look the same?

I was being sarcastic with you when I said,,I thought the Shanghai Tower would finish be 4 1WTC, but after the30ft flooding mess it is going through?? I still, and I would love to bet you, That we could be on the observation deck of ST Before 1WTC!!! Wanna take that bet,, I see 1WTC's GOING NOWHERE SOON,,It might be set back a year, from the 6 it is already,, Shanghai Tower,, this S.O.B. is FLYING!!!! I would bet anything it's done be4 1WTC, and even go a step further 4WTC,, is slow as mollases in January,,, Nothing in NY finishes be4 deadlines,, that's why I like my odds with ST... I'll make a Gentlemen's bet with you,, which is ready to move in 1st this or 1 WTC.. I guarantee this...

Of course your opinion is clearly skewed due to you being Chinese.
