I am looking at the tower right now and it seems like they haven't made much progress lately. I think they are waiting for the cladding to catch up to the top before they build the crown.

They have installed some steel at the top of the core lately. I am not surprised at all with the speed. Towers always slows down before the crown since repetitive construction is over. And when supercomplex double layer facade is involved then things get even more tricky and you need even more preparations. I believe they are on track it's just that there is a lot happening that we can't see from where we sit

how many inhabitants has Shanghai right at the Moment?
I Think the new metro-Region Shenzen and Hong-Kong (just 20 min with the same Metro!) is a Little bit bigger....incredible this development in China...this are the new mega-cities of the future...not USA, not Dubais...the future speaks China!

that last pic gives a good comparison between the big 3 and how their height compares.
