im watching these two towers yesterday, my cam is not sophisticated enough to get the whole view. I went up 87th floor of jinmao, it housed the tallest bar in shanghai "cloud 9". cant get a clear view of mori coz its dark and and glass of jinmao's too refective.

For those who can't wait to see what's the hole will be:



Bad scaling, sorry, it will be a bit higher.

SWFC crane story:

Thanks Slugbelch, SSP

(There is a mistake in the article, hole begins at level 96 and not 91!)

I think they are going to build the steel structure all the way to the top initially without the hole. My guess is the hole will be made by removing steel girders from the hole area after the building is topped out. Perhaps that's why we haven't seen the hole yet?

yes, that copy was written by Discovery so they naturally made it more sexy...

but my understanding and i'm sure others have mentioned it earlier in this (massive) thread that it will be the highest observation deck and I think it will be the highest building without employing a spire.

by the way in the european version of the show Gene Kohn mentions how he thought it would be a great building for a James Bond Film. Bond could fly through the trapazoid opening at the top. I love Bond and I think he is right.

Please read this thread throughout. And look at the pictures.
There is no need to build a "plain" structure, and than remove the interior to build an aperture. They just need to build the two lateral columns and then the top "bridge" forming the 2 last levels 100 and 101. That's why the tower cranes inside the core are moved to one side.

All the steel construction already built is definitive, look at the pics and appreciate all the work achieved on it.


I guess that when the cranes will be OK, the construction of the columns will be fast. Can't wait to see how the very top bridge will be built.

lol, read the thread . the increasing of the height from 492m to 510m was not approved. it will be exactly 491.9m tall, but on every skyscraperpage you'll read 492m.
