Ignore him, clearly his counselor introduced this forum to him as an occupational therapy.. He makes 5 posts a day and hasn't contributed squat to the forum.

Lol, it's so funny follow this construction.

I usually check the projects that interest me every 2 weeks or similar here on the world development side of the forum. This one goes up so fast that it would really deserve to be checked every other day... and we are not talking about simple box tower here either.

Puts the project nicely on scale on that last picture.

I see you are obsessed about this buddy If there is anybody to ask this it's precisely the lowai. He is personally shooting from his apartment, maybe he can spot the moment.

So what do you say lowai? You would need to be extra alert in the coming days since cranes are about to jump in any moment and I believe the jumping process should be rather fast.

Sorry guys have my day job to do, I would like to see it myself, I have seen the supports being put and and taken down near when they jump but never the move.

Anyway, I have a few more shots, photoshopped this time to see if the resolution can be better. Any comments welcome.

From yesterday shopped this time

This is by far the best skyscraper being built worldwide. It obliterates all the competitors.

Greetings from America, I'm in a good mood tonight.

I totally agree. That glass facade is soooo good.

The Shanghai Tower will be really beautiful but it will not beat the Jin Mao.

the construction of the glass seems to slow down since it reached the first ring. maybe they work on the inner cladding before going further up?
