It will be a great battle between Shanghai Tower & Pentominium! Who is going to top-out first?... Any thoughts?

Yeah, the Pentominium should definitly be completed first. It is already ahead of the Shanghai Tower, and of course the Shanghai Tower has farther to go!

There was a two level jump on the core today. Now the 21st and 22nd levels are reveled as well.

Hi Dennis.

Great poll.
The speed of Chinese projects is quite a sight.
I do agree with the guys above though because of the smaller structure and shorter height.
I wonder if the ST will be taller than 516 when this project tops out though ?

Ok I'll go with you Fury. But I won't be surprised if ST is first! The speed is incredible in China, and I hope Pentominium can keep its current speed too.

Yeah I think Pentominium will top out before ST, but be shorter for top out. The floor plates are a little more complicated it seems, and ST has such a pace to it.

But Shanghai Tower is build by the Chinese



Pentominium is being build by Indians and Pakistani



For people taking offense I am just joking

^ Indians and Pakistanis can be as workaholic as anyone! The two richest men in Asia are Indians, and according to this article, Indian households in America are on average wealthier than their East Asian and white counterparts. I doubt they got there by lounging on sacks of rice.

I think it is racism, for Chinese, Pakistani or Indian people to be compared or reflected as such. I wonder why.

Exactly, doesnt mind the nationality , if the management (project manager,project engineer etc..) good this is not an issue.

Chinese, Pakistani or Indian people really hard workers , I can say the same about Koreans,Bangladeshi, Nepali etc..
