The core is at the height of the seventh truss more or less... It should still have one more to go.

not sure if i'm right. The Crown will be arround 80m tall when i remember correctly. And i guess the core will top out just below it. That would mean it'll top out at arround 550m. So another 100m to go for the Core.

True, missed that part.
orange boy's post shows where the top of the core is very clearly (can't wait until the tower gets to that stage!)

It is the 100m tall shanghai financial information building. It is also being regarded as one of the ugliest building in Shanghai by netizens from gaoloumi

The cladding has been going up very slowly lately. I wonder if there's some sort of difficulty holding up the progress.
