The Jin Mao looks rather small on those pictures. And I have to keep telling myself it's pretty damn tall still.

Yes, now 3 levels of steel beams / columns are constructed above the core level.

What does that put our height to? Kanto diagram time. Haven't heard from Kanto in some days now.

And forum great info.


What an Awsome view of Jin Mao! Also, Jin Mao is definition of what a damn spire should be, I have no problem with that being counted toward height, that is definitley part of the bldg, 1Wtc, I'm not so sure about.

I'd say it's in the neighborhood of 593-595 m high now with this new steel at the top.


Observation: they are not using the little cranes on top of a truss belt level for this final facade installation on the last zone they are working on. All the other zones had the little cranes on rails on the roofs of the mechanical levels, helping to work on the cladding below.
