Yesterday I heard in the news that there was a huge fire inside the SWFC, the flames seemed to spread very fast. Does this have any consequences for the further construction workings and the development of this awesome building now??

By the way: The newscaster meant that the SWFC should have been the largest building on earth, the day it's completed - ridiculously!

That's hilarious -- isn't the Pentagon still the largest building? Or maybe the Abraj Al Bait in Mekkah will become so.

That is a shame. At least Shanghai is getting something taller than SWFC in the future.

Regardless if the swfc isn't as tall as taipei 101 there's no doubt in peoples minds which design of the two is superior.

You just need to scroll a few pages back... it's all explained

Work resumed, now under construction: columns up to level 100. Temporary structure inside the hole with 3 levels now.
