Slightly off-topic:

Are there any plans of new supertall/megatall projects in that Pudong area ? I can see lot of empty spaces there still.

What are all those large blocks of ice for? I can only guess for mixing with the concrete in the summer heat. Does anyone know better?

What are they celebrating in those images above? The heat is certainly going to slow the pace of construction down a bit. Nice building. Truly, the Chinese have come of age in constructing skyscrapers.

Last time I check this building was like 200m high, now that is topped out and the facades are almost covered I'm really impressed, if Shanghai's skyline was already beautiful and with a nice shape, now it looks really futuristic, from an autentic XXI century city.

Congratulations, I hope to visit your "little town" in a couple of years
