Some shots from today, again photoshopped to clean up a little, nothing fancy.

Weather a lot better today yesterday was very hazy.

Thanks to lowai for showing us such great photos of the tower under construction! I wonder when the next crane jump on top will be taking place?

------------

Also, about the shots from the movie Looper - I noticed that some of the buildings in the second shot are not where they should be in the fourth shot in the above posting. Did anyone else notice that?

Haze/smog?

See http://www.aqicn.info/?map&lang=en for live updates.


Under a new national standard, Shanghai will rate local air quality based on six indicators, instead of three, starting November 16, officials from the Shanghai Environment Monitoring Center said yesterday.

no way, probably between 410m and 430m now, about the size of Jin Mao to the spire.

I am only now beginning to realize what impact will this tower have on the skyline. This is not just a simple tower, it is a state of the art engineering feat as well as a newborn icon of Shanghai which will shine forever and ever.

That apartment building right next to it must cost astronomically per square meter.
