No, I'm sure they'll manage with only two elevators U can't even imagine how crowded those elevators would be when thousands of people would try to get to the tower and off daily. (There are only two lifts in under 100-meter-high residential building in Helsinki, so my guess is that there's at least 10 elevators in that one. I've never been to a real skyscraper, so I wouldn't know.)

Megacolumns rising one level higher.

Temporary bracing is not finished. It will probably reach level 100 or even 101.

In jinmao, there are many lifts, every lift occupies on its own levels of floors, you need to ride two different elevators in order to go to the top floor. You need to wait no more than 2 minutes for a lift, so its pretty fast. In the lift your ear will hurt like in an airplane. Very good experience

You have to transit by a skylobby in very tall buildings.

I do not recall if Sears has a Skylobby but I know that the original WTC had 2.

It's good that Shanghai doesn't have the sickening smog and cancerous water of Beijing. I love this buildin!
