Amazing speed of construction in China. Like it! Looks like topping out of the concrete structure is in May 2013?

Damn, I'm so outdated and China is so fast on building skyscrapers, basically anything. It's looking pretty big already!

Great updates, thanks.

How do you know for sure? So that means it's now taller than SWFC!!! Just wondering how you know, not questioning you, just hope you're "RIGHT ON" about this... Next 1,, look out Taipei 101's stick!!!!!

As you can see here, you are slightly looking down when you see SWFC from the top of the Shanghai Tower. And SWFC is 492m, so the core of Shanghai Tower got to be 500m or more right now.

Yeah, there is a good 10m from the top of the crane to the roof.

Once the Shanghai Tower surpasses SWFC, it will be definitely reported in the news (just like when both SWFC and ST surpassed Jinmao and OPT), so dont you guys worry.
