Looks like they are working on the interior glass skin.

I know that this tower isn´t finished yet, but i am not sure if i should like the outer facade. It could create the effect of an unoccupied building, once finished.

You mean it will be too transparent? I actually love that effect. Here Old Wtc just after they were finished.

It will be the tallest tower in CHINA until Ping An's spire passes it eventually. It will be the third tallest structure of any kind on Earth when it tops out.

$1000 a month for a construction worker in China sounds very unrealistic to me..
Where in China? It's quite a big country.

It may be just me but despite seeing new photos of ST every day, every time I see it I just can't believe how amazing this building really is.

That's why it went viral in China as people are shocked at how much a construction worker can earn, the leaked pay stub is from Shenzhen. I talked to someone who is a contractor in China and it turns out that kind of pay is not unheard of in large Eastern China cities. Construction labor is increasingly harder to find and keep, as they prefer working closer to home in constructions sites in interior China. At Shanghai a skilled construction worker such as an experienced welder or crane driver sometimes can earn close to $2000 with overtime.

I have read some articles about salaries rising in China recently but I would have never believed they are growing that fast. I don't even think I believe now since a lot of information is fabricated in china, but if this is indeed true and construction workers will earn real money from now on, I guess we can say bye bye to the idea of worlds next tallest in china, unless they start hiring Pakistanis like Arabs do.
