I wonder how the workers climbed to the top since I don't see ladders over there.

Look at the other skyscrapers they are so small. Even the top of SWFC is under the foot!

Big question now - is there to be a helipad in that flat circular place in the middle?

Bittersweet time for me. I've been looking forward to this thing topping out forever, yet now I know the days of following its construction are nearing an end.

Congratulations to Shanghai for building such a Jewel in the Skyscraper crown. This building is an iconic landmark and now the world will marvel at Chinese boldness in designing and building some of the best looking skyscrapers that would look amazing in any city around the world. This has to be in the top 5 best looking Skyscrapers in the world next to its neighbour the SWFC
