No, it seems they move the two tower cranes on the same side of the building, and no crane on the opposite side.

Great pics, I've never seen the detailing at the top of Jin Mao so well. This building has an extraordinarily timeless design, it doesn't look "contemporary" to the same extent as most scrapers going up right now, but nor will it look dated in 20 years. Kind of like BoC building in HK.

I think it's better to post the picture in the page so I don't have to click all these little links to see the picture. I have a large screen and lots of RAM so it works out much better posted this way.

dwalden- i think the guy who mentioned SWFC will be WTB on completion maybe ment roof height? It will be 44m clear of taipeis 101 roof, so it really a great feat.

just awesome pix

It just amazes me that this building is almost done. Perhaps another year or so. There is a huge amount of progress from what this building looked like a year ago. It really flew up in the sky.

Well good. As long as it's great for you.


FYI - I have a 24" widescreen monitor running at 1920x1200 on a very powerful machine with 4 GB of RAM hooked up to a very fast net connection. I'd still prefer a link for something of that size and I'm sure most people agree with me.

Anyone?
Ask the Discovery Channel, it was their statement, but it's probably the height to the roof.

It's just that more people might watch the show when it's about the highest building in the world then when it's just about a very high building. So I wouldn't read to much into it.
