And if that was so clear then why is it the whole world got confused about that? It's not like they hoisted a decorated "The Last Beam" in the light of flashes, right? Oh wait...
Well, it's a milestone in the construction of ST, and a significant one, so I think it's perfectly fine to celebrate it. It's like people celebrating high school graduation even though they know their education isn't complete yet. I'm sure when the the crown is finished there will be a grander ceremony to mark the occasion, after all the core topping out wasn't really widely reported in Chinese media, just a quick news flash across the evening news. Vast majority of people in Shanghai have no idea what had happened.

Amazing! I really like how it is turning out so far. Is there any new supertall(s) plans around that tower in the near future?

It's 570 m now, so 62 more meters to go.

Well they said that these 3 supertalls will serve “as a stunning representation of our past (Jin Mao Tower), our present (SWFC) and China’s boundless future (Shanghai Tower)”

So we won't probably see another super tall in that complex, which I hoped it would come true. Imagine a 690 m or 700+ m tower next to ST. That would blow your mind
