Looks like the first skybridge @level 97 will be installed before columns go higher:

I wasn't aware there was going to be a skybridge... is it connecting to the Tapei 101 building or something?

The other tower is Jin Mao tower, not TaiPei 101 (TaiPei101 is located in... TaiPei...).

There will be a skybridge inside the hole, at the bottom part. Just check the renderings...

I'm very glad it's close to Jin Mao. Tall skyscrapers standing all alone like Taipei 101 make it look very inefficient. I also love seeing skyscrapers in clusters.

Those are absolutely beautiful shots.

I think they need to fill in those "green" areas with more skyscrapers or other types of buildings.

Yea, that one. It's in such a prime location, right on the waterfront. I hope they do it justice.

SWFC is great skyscraper and I like desing. It is monolithic and massive. Great example how skyscrapers should like. In my opinion it should be considered as world tallest finished building. It doesn't have cheating spire like Taipei 101, Petronas TT, One Bryant Park (spire is disgusting) and other modern skyscrapers that have roof height of 250m and 100m spire.
Excellent job China.
