Cool picture. I'm not sure who to address this to but it would be nice if we can view more posts per page, like 200 posts per page versus 25.

200 post per page

If you get 200 post per page, is it to much loading in one time. And if they are many picture's , the loading can take 10 minutes time!

It might take a while for some people but it would be nice if the option was there.

There is a lot to do on the last level... so yes, topped out in one week, but no fully constructed.

One hell of a skyscraper. It should be worlds tallest in my opinion. Much more massive and higher roof than Taipei101s. They could put a small flagpole on top and that would do it

Skyscraper construction suspended after fire
By Gu Jia 2007-8-16

CONSTRUCTION on what will be the Chinese mainland's tallest building has been suspended since a small fire on Tuesday afternoon, but the skyscraper will still be completed on schedule as the main structure was undamaged.

An initial investigation found the source of the fire may be inside one of the six elevated wells inside the Shanghai World Financial Center in Pudong New Area, Youth Daily said today.

The fire may have been caused by sparks from a welder's torch and the sparks likely fell from the upper floors and ignited construction waste below.

Fires were found on the 26th, 52nd and 57th floors, firemen said.

Results of the investigation will be announced today or tomorrow, the report said.

About 1,000 workers were inside the building when the blaze started.

The fire was brought under control in a little more than an hour after 200 firefighters rushed to the site. No one was injured.

How firemen battle blaze in skyscraper
By Yang Lifei 2007-8-17

FIRE fighters put out flames at 360 meters above ground level - setting a new national record - on Tuesday when fire broke out at the unfinished Shanghai World Financial Center, the Shanghai Fire Control Bureau said yesterday.

There were six blazes in the building, which now stands at 466 meters high with 99 stories. Flames were discovered on the 83rd floor, with other fires scattered on the stairs between the second and third floor, the 18th, 26th, 50th and 52nd floors.

The bureau yesterday revealed details on how local fire fighters managed to extinguish the fires, caused by sparks from a welder's torch. There were no casualties.

The alert was first received at 4:34pm. Firemen from 10 brigades and 25 fire engines were dispatched to the scene. "About 3,000 construction workers were working in the building, and 500 were still trapped by fire and smoke when firemen arrived," said Zhou Meiliang, a bureau official. "Workers were guided to fire escapes or construction elevators. Luckily, none of them was injured during the evacuation."

Chu Bin, director of Tongshan Fire Brigade, was among the first to reach the scene. "Anxious workers rushed out of the building but no one could tell exactly which floor was on fire because the upper section was covered in smoke," he said. Chu dispatched a team of firemen to the 26th floor, a second team to search for flames above 26th floor and the third team to help workers evacuate.

Fire fighters from other brigades were sent to the 86th floor where smoke was billowing out. "However, firemen couldn't find flames in the floor and started to search downstairs. Finally they discovered a fire on the 83rd floor and used extinguishers to put out the flames," Zhou said.
