This is a great picture, it shows clearly why people thought they already started on the hole. But instead it was still the Exhibition room that needs more space and doesn't need to support the higher structure. It's now going to be the most exciting part of the construction, I'm looking forward to it!

1 more floor to skybridge, level 96 is already bottom/floor of inside hole, open air area under the observatory bridge. Next increase in height will be aperture columns starting up.

And yes, still 435 m *only*

I like them in clusters too. But two skyscraper doesn't make much of a cluster

But get what you mean. Hope they get some "friends" in the future.

I think the level 97 observation bridge will be constructed afterwards... the lateral columns of the aperture will be built first.

Is it possible to use one crane to move the other to the external crane basis, and than to use that crane to move the first crane? It would be quicker than putting up new cranes...

Those external cranes may be smaller than the 2 big tower cranes?

They look like 440D Favs... I think they'll just move them.. they'll be swaying a bit.. new crane sections on outside would be used for them.. right size

One of the best looking towers under construction. Shanghai seems very polluted. When that's finished, can u even see the top on a bad day?
