I'm not american but i live in america. 1WTC is nothing to brag about, and it really isn't a worthy replacement for the Twin Towers.

One of the crane is dismantled... now only 2 cranes are remaining on the core





This I guess is taken from the 5th truss belt.

Is it a megatall structure if you count the top of the cranes?

Cranes don't count as part of the building. It will be a megatall in its own right once the crown is built.

I must say, Shanghai Tower has really grown on me. It's already showing up everywhere from movies to videogames, and it seems like Shanghai is the city of choice if you want your movie to have a futuristic vibe.

Shanghai has a lot of futuristic looking buildings, and not only in the Pudong cluster.
Shanghai Tower is easily my favourite building in the world. There is really nothing quite like it with the curving and twisting facade.

At least it seems to be some good progress down at the podium.

Pudong's so great. Many buildings at Pudong have perfect architectures. That's amazing city.
