This looks is Observatory floor, not part of 8th trust belt. Observatory is 3 floors.
1st. floor 118 is top of 8th. belt, plus two more platforms. I think that is second observatory floor, above 8th. belt. Or 119 fl.

I think so too. All other truss belts are 2 floors, this is 1 floor higher.

How far along

How far along do you think the building will be the end of March 2014? I'm headed to Shanghai around March 27th. Hope the weather is decent, I heard it's like spring-ish temperature.

British Stand-up Comedian (or better known as the London Mayor) Boris Johnson is in Shanghai today.

Maybe this is part of 8th. trust belt. Is not new platform above it.

That guy in the photo above seems to comb his hair like Donald Trump but I digress.
But seriously, I've been wondering exactly how they're going to position the cranes for the construction of the crown. It would seem that they can't stay where they are because they're in the way of the remaining floors above that last truss belt so I'm wondering if they're going to somehow secure one or two cranes to the very top of the core. It's going to be interesting to see how they position them in order to top this building out. Does anyone know? Thanks!
