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 think there could be one final crane jump, and then two of the four cranes will be disassembled and hoisted down by the remaining two cranes. Then they will install a smaller crane in the center of the core which will disassemble those two cranes. Then finally a much smaller portable crane on the crown formwork which will disassemble that single crane. This last crane will be disassembled manually and parts brought down via elevators.

There's a real estate bubble in China, of course. Just like in many other growing emerging markets. They should check it, keeping under control with long term measures.

Ironically Bernanke created a new (dangerous) bubble in the Us stock market and even the Us housing market doesn't look pretty healthy (again).

Ps

Today I'm in Davos (Switzerland).
Probably i could see some Chinese consumerism signs.

The glass and the spiral of this building are really good. It's much better than I thought.

i agree i have to admit i was a bit sceptical about the design when it wasn't that far advanced a few years ago and was worried it would be too crazy and too all over the place in the end, but the double cladding and the line spiraling up do the exact opposite of being crazy, they bring a certain scale to the building.
