Assemble a freaking huge crane 600 meters up in the sky, next remove two equally gigantic cranes... then we talk.

Some great shots there. I can't believe how tiny those short buildings look against the towers.

I know I blab a lot about awesome photos,, Mostly, because I'm 40 and the computer generation,has passed me by, so I like congratulating you guys when posting good pics.but I take them to work and show people.. But seriously, between Little U and Forum on this page. All I can say is wow! Your photos, dedication, and contributions to this forum, are remarkable. You guys are just Phenomenal,, and I'll even throw a "shout out" to ajosh, (great photos, just not as crisp as the 2 prior,, but good angles..) I took in page 934 to work today, and more and more people are becoming interested, if anything, I'm turning more people on to these forums and skyscrapers,, and you guys are the ones to thank! Great job guys!

I work with roughly, 1000 people, most have no Idea,, this construction is going on in our world,, hell 80% didn't know NYC had a New WTC 1,, and they're Americans..

If more people become aware and cognisive,, maybe USA will get a skyscraper over 2000 ft by 2020???

There must be lots of people working behind the cladding getting the lower levels ready. I wonder how many are employed at present on ST?

Nice. But I wish they would light up the SWFC in red more often, it looks beautiful that way!

I'm not really a fan of the Shanghai World Financial Center, but I LOVE how it's lit at night. It's like the Bank of America Tower, but it's more colorful.

And as for the Shanghai Tower, it's looking great. Although the eighth section and the base of the crown looks a little awkward against the facade of the building. But that'll be fixed soon when the eighth section of the building of the building is clad and the crown is under construction. (I have no idea how they're going to do that, but whatever they'll do, it'll be so fun!)
