Is that final crane on top going to come down as well?

(on the top corners of the tower is where concrete is, how are they cladding on top of the concrete?, looks like there's space between the concrete and the glass making tower more henge.)

I adore Shanghai, perhaps better than any other city of the world, but I didn't like this building at all. It destroyed the skyline that used to be harmonious.

Nice cladding of the base, a bit minimalist but I like it the whole building being minimalist too.

It is the thing that makes the tower so beautiful.
