Jeez, this was in the ground the last time I looked at this thread - Shanghai is turning into an immense skyline, I love the curve of the river too - makes it very dramatic!

Sweet update Lowai, any idea what that is their hoisting? Will this be the final crane jump?

Yes, it is a great update. That yellow thing is the crane support for the central crane in the close-up picture of the top. If you look closely, you can see that the top support is not finished, but the piece going up will connect to what's there to allow the crane to jump again. This will be the last jump, then later two cranes opposite each other will dismantle the other two cranes, and then build the crown. This was shown in a video that someone linked to in this thread just a few days ago.

A recap on how Shanghai tower took its shape.
I thought it'd be a great help to the new-comers or to those who recently picked up this as a gorgeous tower, so they wouldn't have to scour for similar things through every single page on the thread.

great job NYCrulz! the construction of Ping an is very similar, though it seems to me Ping an is faster.

Edit : Oh Yeah! As Ping An's growing, it's starting to appear pretty much the way Shanghai tower did!

Fast 7's city is Tokyo, but if they'll continue the fast and furious saga this city could be the right one for the next sequel

Seeing Obama should cause the same reaction. Just as bad, or worse.

I'm confused. I don't recall seeing a picture of Nobama and plus my laptop screen hasn't been punched I went through 3 laptops last month because a picture of Nobama appeared on the screen....Not good
