In my opinion most of the towers going up in China are either tacky or lame, but this tower is excellent. Will be the keystone of a trully excellent cluster of buildings when completed.

This has to be my new favorite building in the world. I love this tower! So much originality and stunning beauty!

It's not form work, they took that off ages ago. It must be scaffold towers for steel fixers. That's why there seems to be netting on whatever they're lifting? Steel columns and beams installation must be a few weeks away.

Also it's odd the third crane is still there. In the previous animation the third crane was taken down already. It can't be for facade installation as it's a swing stage installation.

After looking at this again, could be form support structure being taken down and not up as someone suggested. You can see stairs and working deck planks if you zoom in on that photo.

I think the third crane will be around until they finish that last truss belt structure. Then before they start work on the last remaining floors before the crown, they will dismantle the 3rd crane.

Quite slow at the moment. I hope they'll speed up again with the crown soon
