Has it taken over SWFC? at 480, not counting cranes?I know the cladding is starting on 3rd truss correct? And when will it be considered a MEGATALL 1800ft or 2000,, I thought it was 1800, and super was 1200? Is that correct?I'm starting to get confused with this 1 although it is my favorite,,, I just have a tough time translating meters to feet... (Us Damn Americans!!!!)
The cutoff for supertall is 300m (984 ft), and the cutoff for megatall is 600m (1968 ft).

The cladding makes me think of armadillo skin. Very cool.

I imagine they will begin work on the podium soon, no? I think I heard Strabala mention that it would be opened some time before the tower is completed.

I guess the poster is referring to the Tokyo Sky Tree, which is different from this Canton Tower in Guangzhou, China.

Shanghai needs more supertalls to fill up the skyline, and get rid of those apartment blocks behind these skyscrapers.
