The tower looks amazing. They've started the hole in the tower.

I've never been so excited about a hole except for when I'm about to have sex with a woman. Great profile shot of the beginnings of the hole. It looks like those skinny beams are the real base of the hole, am I right?

Nope. The skinny beams are the columns of the skybridge i think. Someone corret me if i am wrong.

If you mind the horizontal ones, no, it's the skybridge "skeleton". On each side, the vertical beams are the megacolumns rebar, rising now at level 98.



Don't forget the skybridge is inside the hole...

Excellent pic, ssfan, thanks . Very few pics on flickr those days

Just think, by the time we see another of Cul's diagrams, this thing will be nearly topped out. By then, we should certainly see some major shape to the skybridge, and the two cores should be nearly topped out. We might even see work on the upper skybridge!

Construction of the horizontal top part will be tricky I think
Think it's 80+m wide

It would be funny if they felt that the hole was too difficult and time consuming to make and instead just filled the hole in with the rest of the building.

Not so difficult or time consuming, compared with CCTV building...


Can't wait to see that under construction...

Judging by this SSP Diagram, the top outside is about 75m, and the top inside is just over 50m. I know the diagram can't be counted on to be accurate, but for a rough idea...

Well, the building footprint is a 57.95m side square... so the top diagonal will be 57.95 x 1.414 = 81.94m, a bit less because of the corners cut...

Anyway, I don't think they'll use 75+m steel beams... It will be like constructing a classical bridge, but 480m high...
