Wow I bet that's a pretty intense job... trying to move those huge cranes at the top of a 101 floor skyscraper...

I'm envious.

German School Shanghai webcam:



abc was quite right in his explanation ( http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=1588 ), the two tower cranes will be moved on one side of the building (the one facing Jin Mao).

The tower looks very nice. I hope they start to build the hole in the tower soon.

I have a question here. On another thread, we discussed about who is world's tallest buildings. Someone said that Freedom Tower is world's tallest office building. I am not sure if that person is right because I think Shanghai World Fiancial Center will be world's tallest office tower. Am I correct? Please correct me. Thanks!
