Hey, Wheelock Tower looks much better now with most of the cladding on! And it might even improve with the glass parapet on top.

Btw. assuming 4 oversized floors at the base, I count 56 structural floors, with the started 57th upmost. And the top is also missing, so the T/O-labelling has come to early here IMO. There should be at least 20m to come, and I guess that Tower 66 is still the tallest in the neighborhood.

Furthermore, compared with the render on post #1, I see more differences than just the darker color: there are only 14 levels each between the 3 indications of the cladding now, instead of 15. And this render shows around 61 floors (maybe the upmost is fake and already part of the parapet). But I hope the given 298m still apply to the final height of the recent SWT, bringing it close to "supertalldom".

Excellent! Two more metres and it would be a supertall.

It looks so similar to the SWFC.

That angle looks just like the SWFC, just that it stops 200m too short. The glass spine is exactly like that of SWFC's, just the cladding is slightly different.

the 'spine' is looking very good now. great tower! Shanghai should develop the area around it more, this tower would looks great with a few nice, taller towers around it.

It really doesn't look like as tall as nearly 300m. Seems at most 250m to me.

It's because the towers in the surroundings are quite tall as well.
