Nope, observation deck is the part under construction at the top, not the bracing underneath. So we stay at level 100

Perspective. From certain angles, your eye underestimates how much closer Jin Mao is.

Nope... look closer.. steel frame is exactly at the august 18th line of my diag...
What is under construction on top is the skybridge, level 100.

Look at the columns: no need to follow the curved line after the skybridge, this curved line is now topped out, at level 101 floor.
We are mistaken by the low height of temporary structure at its last level: that is not the skybridge!






Thus still at 478-480m.

Happy 3-days-late SSC anniversary, Skymyhusband! Just wanted to say I really appreciate all of the time you spend explaining and making diagrams in this thread.

But what are you going to do when SWFC's topped out!? Your last year's work will be void!
