It won't be long now.

I would think they're close to being done with the transfer/mechanical floors right there where it turns to red steel.

Shanghai's skyline is gorgeous. It would soon put many historically skyline famous cities to shame.

Shanghai now moves to my top 5 visit list.

Yes, Shanghai is indeed an excellent city. And has a breath taking skyline.
This project is one of my favorites of late.
