When people imagine Shanghai, Pudong area appears in their mind. However, Puxi area is very impressive too imo. Puxi needs a few supertalls as well

Now that was cool, I like that top out ceremony, NY should have had a similar deal with 1WTC, instead of keeping everyone guessing for so long.. Lets crown this baby.....The page is on 800, I got my 100th like today, all kinds of milestones......

I'm not an expert but I would assume it's for being mixed into the liquid concrete, to help keep it cooler as the concrete sets. Concrete actually generates a lot of heat as it sets (there's chemical reactions involved), and they use ice to keep it from overheating. High temperatures slow the setting process quite a bit if I remember correctly.

Is that the core finished? I can't believe how quick this has gone up. Someone else said it but I think Shanghai will also become my favourite skyline in the world once this is complete.

Thanks, that was my thought also. Though I would have thought adding all of that water to the mix would weaken it, I guess they must take all of that into account at the mixing plant.

lol, Patience grasshopper. I think we still have several dozen floors worth of structural steel before the crown's structure begins to be put together.

The floors will have to catch up with the core first before contruction of the crown will start.
