See the tiny little dots of light on SWFC? Those windows are about as tall as a grown adult. A human being standing on top of Shanghai Tower in that picture, even in silhouette against the sky, would be no bigger than a pixel or two tall. These buildings are humongously big.

It's becoming harder and harder to convey the size of these towers in photos. Okay, we see them dwarf nearby buildings, but the only size comparison we can make from the photos is "This tower is X times bigger than that tower". It's hard to relate the size of the skyscrapers to anything else than other skyscrapers nearby. Those might be huge on their own, but it's hard to tell, since they're dwarfed and all.

Even though Shanghai Tower grows bigger by the day, there are few shots of it that give me that "wow" impression - the building is so huge it's hard to make a picture that puts its size into context. They must be truly epic to behold in person, though, when you can relate more closely to the scope of things around the tower, and measure them up against it.

No, it isn't topped out yet. The complete crown is still missing.

Shanghai has really been developing recently since my visit there six years ago.

Looks like some diagonal cross sections over the concrete core at the very top.

Those are the cranes used for the installation of the outer facade structure.
