I made a mistake and corrected it, the large facade is south side and not east side

Are you sure???

Ah, yes, but I thought about the large faces up the building and not the sides elevated from ground

Yep, clearing the hole and finishing lateral concrete columns, replacing damaged by fire cladding...

We didn't see so much progress the last weeks, I think the progress will be huge the next ones

We clearly see in this pic that the level 100 skybridge is almost cleared:



I think the hole will be totally cleared within 2 weeks or some.

After that, construction of the level 97 skybridge, maybe removing the cranes early 2008?...

Well, I reckon that the inner top width is ~60m and the height ~50?

Overall width of the building at the top is ~80m.

i still hate it how it dwarfs Jin Mao. But surely this one its one of my favs in the world. OFFTOPIC ----->Its unbelievable that the pentominium will be taller than this one. and it wont have A THAT BIG effect on the tallest block. Allthough buildings with this heights should have an enourmos effect on skylines.
