I think the top of the built structure will catch up Jin Mao very soon... The last installed steel pillars seem to top at ~415m.

It's already much, much bigger than Jin Mao... including the cranes

It looks like the John Hancock Center with the two cranes as antennas

SkymyHusband,

You really got skills taking those images. Did you took any photography course or the talent is already inside of you? I can't wait to see more images from you.

Thankfully he does provide excellent updates and photos. I would be contributing, but I do not have a great deal of free time, and I would most likely end up posting things that someone has already posted.

Thanks Sky.
