Cool. THis suddenly goes pretty quickly. It shouldn't take long before it tops out.

yes, on one of the pics you can see how big the steel-pieces are they lift up at the moment. Can't wait for the next megatall in the Supertall List

As this building climbs ever higher, it just becomes more beautiful.

It is a fantastic bit of design - organic in a way but still efficient and clean lined. Cant wait to see it topped out.

I always thought that some of the highest building in Shanghai couldn't be overpassed easily, but this one really has made it! Looks great. I wonder if any future project will overpass this one.

Wow.

That surely is a very beautiful place to stay at night.
My friend visited Shanghai a few days ago and he said that this building appears just so surrealistically high, you can't imagine.

That picture taken from an airplane shows, like nothing taken from the ground, how huge this building is!
