Surely that has to be the best most imaginative shot ever. Really looks like the heavens are staring down through the SWFC hole.

you can really tell how clean the new cladding looks compared to the old. SWFC will need a thorough washing when its completed.

woops, I see this has already been discussed.

The bigger one (boom) has been put down few days ago.
The smaller one is still working.

that's a neverending problem in china. with all the pollution, buildings become black with soot and pollution in no time. A taxi driver once explained that the new opera building in beijing requires a vast amount of water in order to wash the windows, and I can only imagine that a landmark tower like SWFC would require a large amount of water.

perhaps they should consider reusing rainwater (wouldn't apply in arid Beijing) for cleaning the surface of office towers.

The tower has a great advance and it looks very nice in the pics. It looks very imponent over the skyline of Shanghai.
