Hey, guys, I don't know how many of you must have watched this, but mine is the first time. I have never felt so much love for Shanghai while watching this video. There's a true feel of slipping past 2014, watching this video. Check it out!

I think the low-rise scene beautifully blends in the realm of high-rises, esp at night...

I was wrong.

Above 117 are 5 more floors of concrete '+ shape' core, then the steel goes up around that.

Then 3 floors of one line segment of core within the steel, then only steel.

Lots more concrete to pour!

SHANG HAI seems to push it further and further.
I’d say, in my dictionary : [SHANGHAI = SURREAL]

Is there any chance to come to the top of Shanghai tower to take pictures? I mean to officially ask the developer for it.

It would be very cool to go up there, judging by the pics above...

someone's got to eventually do a james bond type film where a helicopter goes through that big hole, even if it's only done by special effects.

Huge fight on top of ST, Bond escapes via zip line to the top of SWFC, more fighting, a helicopter passes through the bottle opener, Bond jumps on, and then crashes into Jin Mao tower where Bond is thrown off and into a conference meeting of confused Chinese.

He gets up, dusts off, turns to the hot Chinese babe and says:

"The name is Bond. James Bond."
