Nice progress but not very fast. What will be behind the transparent glass in the first pic? A restaurant maybe?

The derrick crane will then be dismantled and taken down by the elevators.

The R370 can lift heavy loads.... the heaviest part of the M900D would weigh around 20-tonne..
Thank you very much.

The news says Shanghai shut down most of the lights to save power for snowstorm victim areas. I guess above pic reflects the power saving strategy.

Haha, I love how the sign says Mirae Ass instead of Mirae Asset.
I guess we can stop calling this building the Hopson Tower, and instead call it the Mirae Asset Tower.
