If anybody in the US is interested, they are covering Shanghai Tower right now, on the show "Super Skyscrapers" on the PBS channel.

It's actually a 4 part series, the first had 1WTC, the 2nd (haven't watched yet, 3rd was Shanghai's best and 4th I don't remember.)

And wht the hell does Little Universe's pics so crisp and clean. Damn I know I have a high def computer mon when I see his posts.. Awesome, and Ive probably said this like 30 times but Great Job LU. We need a Lowai update and a Kanto diagram.

But it's not the tallest in London... It's third. It is the current tallest within the City of London, however, but that contains about a square mile of land so it's rather small. Still a fantastic building though.

PBS' Super Skyscrapers finally aired the episode on Shanghai Tower.
You can view the episode here .

If you're not in the US, I've been told downloading theHola extension for Chrome will allow you to view it anyways.

Let me know if it works.

So far, the series has been nice. Episode 1 was 1WTC and Episode 2 was the Leadenhall Bldg. in London.

Enjoy!

This could be the centre crane that will dismantle the two cranes on the core.

Perhaps the cladding framing is finished?

The cranes will now decrease in size until completion.

Next would be construction of the exterior crown framing, then replace the centre crane with a smaller one on the top ridge of the crown, then the final crane a smallest one next to that on the crown.

The final crane will be small enough to disassemble by hand and lower in the elevator.

China Hand, has there been any uproar, with the whole trespassing incident, and have they closed anything, or have they said the progress will be delayed for any reason?
