I don't believe the design ever called for an open deck observation deck, even now seeing that the current design for the 3 floored observation deck has deviated from even the newest renderings of the reconfigured crown. But the 3 floor ob. deck will be the highest one in the world when complete.

Also very nice closeup pictures of the crown, you can see a small mobile crane has been set up atop the core. If calculations are correct the top of the crown should be level with the cabin of the current crane.

It's CRAZY how I never see any workers actually putting up the bamboo, or anyone working on it! You would think to see many workers, especially with such great close up pictures!

Today, taken at about 4 pm on my iPhone. Pics from my camera will be later after my return to Russia .



20 .07. 2014.

Off topic: it Toys'R'us here is a model set with Shanghai city core layout, over 1100 pieces. The set is very interesting as it gives you a plentiful info on the history of the city. You build it through its historic layers!

Yeah, I bought the New York one, but I couldn't get the puzzle finished (I've never done a puzzle in my life before that) and I lost the instructions book. Oops. Why does everything happen to me?!?
