Oh well, at the moment, construction of the steel structure is not finished, and I don't know when the dampers will be installed?

Oh, thanks.. it confirms that core is now at level 91, good progress

The "big" mechanical level is divided in 2 floors, maybe 3?

Wow, the night shots were just amazing!
--------------------------------

FYI on China's efforts towards clean energy:

Construction of China's first million kilowatt-class windmill begins

In Hebei Province, the Zhangbei Shanjinghe 200-million-kilowatt class national concession wind power project recently got underway. This is the first million-kilowatt class wind power base project in China. Some 78.5% of the equipment for the project is made locally. The project will provide green, clean energy to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

A total of 1.6 billion yuan has been invested in the project. The windmill can generate 440 million kilowatts per hour. Compared with thermal power generators of the same capacity, it can save 166,000 tons of standard coal and cut the emission of sulfur dioxide by 7,454 tons and carbon dioxide by 395,000 tons annually.

I heard some crazy statistic that China needs to built a power station every week for 10yrs to cope with its current and future energy demands. Im not sure if this is entirely true but if it is, thats amazing.

Yes, 95, level 96 is the skybridge obdeck. But next floors 91-94 will be very high ones.

Yes, on level 100, on top of the building, more than 60m wide. Should be incredible

Here's a model for future floor progress:



Hope that's correct.

Edit: Sorry, where I put #100 is actually #101, Floor 100 obdeck is just underneath, where the model shows some lights.

i dont like the facade on this building, its too dull, i like who it looks on the model, the kinda seethrough ness of it with light grey tint and blue lights, that looks better than an all blue facade.
