It would be good to see close-up of the top section. This would need a helicopter or crane shot.

Now I can just envision the Shanghai Tower when it is completed... the glass is the BEST IN THE WORLD!!! I don't know how good the cladding of the buildings in the future will look, but they will NEVER BEAT THE SHANGHAI TOWER!!!

My understanding is, those first shots of the steel framework will be where the observation deck will be?

Kind of funny to think that when I joined this forum, this was an empty plot, and SWFC was still under construction.
