Yeah, and i believe they could do this easily... They will easily have the highest public observation deck at such a height that no one will be able to beat it within this decade except Al Burj


i was thinking for lvl 156... The top of concrete section... Maybe a VIP obs deck?

Look @ that facade in the 2nd pic! Just great.

"Skymyhusband" & "Shanghai World Financial Center" are synonymous in my opinion.

You've been part of history making Sky

It would be awesome to jump top of World Financial Center between the two towers!
Roland Simpson was killed during that jump in 2004 ... crazy sport.

Going to be a challenge to base jump this baby due to the outwards taper.




Unless you jump off the straight edge sides.

Finishing level 100 to secure future construction of level 101.

I said it won't be so fast Building the columns was fast because there was not so much to do, we have now a full 80m+ upper structure to build.

Good progress on the podium & cladding.
