Sorry for the shitty quality. My camera, or lense, or both appear to be dying.

Has the concrete core stopped?

If so how high (which storey)does the steel structure begin?

Any estimates on when SWFC will overtake Jin Mao?

The concrete core already has reached its final height and they are working on the steel section quite some time. The level where the concrete core stopped was i think at level 80-82 (correct me if i am wrong) and they are now at level 85-86.

I think it will overtake it in June-July. May seems a bit too short to make that kind off progression.

Cheers

Concrete core is up to level 78 (included, topped at the last mechanical floor), steel beam core is rising now at level 85 (on progress).

I think construction will slow down again after level 90 or some, because an other structural reconfiguration will be needed for mass dampers location (one on each corner).

And after all this, the top structure with the square hole... a lot of time to wait.

Jin Mao will be overtaken at approx. level 94 (slightly before reaching "the hole").

I never liked the design of the Jin Mao, but the SWFC seems to accent it nicely. The former's rough exterior serves as an interesting counterpoint to the smooth chisel shape of the latter.

It will begin at levels 95/96, and levels around the hole (96-99) are a lot higher than levels beneath.

Interesting to see how it will be managed to put the last levels over the hole (100-101), 65-70 m. straight without support

Really appreciate XiaoBai's photos where the two supertalls stand out from the crowd, like the concept very much!

One of the most beautiful and exciting scraper in the world!! I'm so glad they finally stopped building plastic-looking flashy-colored buildings! Look how its cladding reflects the horizon, the roads...it melts in the sky!!!!
