Well, the core has topped, so until the rest of the structure catches up, it's technically impossible to go further up

Why would it? THe crane was removed because there was no more need for it. Slowly, one by one, two others would be removed too

Example: 1 ton of concrete is equivalent to one ton of C02. And then there's all the steel and glass, which in this building is double because someone liked the idea of a twin curtain wall. Shame beauty comes at such a price. But then the Chinese don't much care for their environment. And I dislike the Shard for the same reasons. Height and beauty are no longer enough for me at least.



Let me guess, you live in a cage and you hibernate in the winter, reducing the need for heat .... right?

Yes but since they finished the last trust belt weeks ago not much has changed. I just wonder why the last few floors don't catch up.

Waiting for the concrete to harden, I guess. As a rule of thumb, it takes concrete four weeks to reach its specified strength (as the specified strength is derived from how strong it is 28 days after pouring).

They would have to remove 2 of the other three (at least one has to remain) cranes, so it's logical to complete as much of the lower parts as possible, using all the remaining three cranes.

Some really nice pics here...many of the buildings are breathtakingly beautiful. The only downside though is the air pollution. On the other hand...photographers can take advantage of the beautiful colors air pollution gives you at sunset.

Taken by me yesterday, not the best weather in Shanghai but finally i can contribute something useful

This (Bund 27), alone with Bund 18, are the best vantage points to view Lujiazui imo.

A while back someone who said they liked Ping An Finance Center better than Shanghai Tower said that it looked too much like a burrito.

Wow good thing some of us Americans have thick skin. I for 1 can assure u that I'm American, and WTC isn't even in my top 5.. (Past, Present or Future.) You probably haven't checked the 1 WTC thread, from beginning or close to the beginning, (actually to see how many "Americans" were pissed about, the "Phantom" roof height, just recently, or even the unhappiness of the design, when 1st released, some "years" ago) so I assume you either hate America or have had a shitty experience with American's sometime during your life. looking at your join date, I'll just assume, you're a rookie, and don't know just how many people, American or not view this forum. Kinda surprised a Mod hasn't slashed your comments yet from the thread. I imagine it will now and I'll get a strike against me as well, for even responding to that CRAP.
