yeah, the other 2 chinese commercial is not bad too, the one that divided into 5 screen (not sure for what purpose), & the one that has the-end-of-the-world-dramatic-apocalypse-something soundtrack, lol china love rendering videos with dramatic music

BTW, could the Mod please delete all these pointless discussion about the so-called bubbles in Chinese economy? They are so irrelevant and distracting. We come to this thread to enjoy witnessing the exciting progress of ST construction, not the debate on Chinese economy.

What he said. Let's keep this thread on topic and pursue other discussions elsewhere. Thanx!

Amazing tower!

Even though this tower is not exactly my 'type' it's still pretty amazing!

Shot a few weeks ago from my trip to China:

Just a quick question. It appears as though the construction of the steel beams and the new floors has just about reached the bottom of the cranes and their supports. Since the core has topped out and those cranes can't keep rising how are they going to keep lifting the materials for the remaining floors? It seems like they'd either have to reconfigure a new crane system at the top of the structure or somehow find a way to work around those four sets of supports that are attached to the core but if they did that I don't see how they could construct the floors or pour the concrete on top of them without having four big holes that they'd have to complete later after the cranes were removed. I hope that question makes sense. Thanks.

I do believe there is still one more crane jump to go. Not very sure though.

It's way too low to be from the crown.
