Hi Sock.

Just above the floor of level 2.
I haven't seen a section drawing that includes height numbers for each level yet, only one with heights of the top of each zone.

It's a bit strange to see that guy sitting there with ordinary training shoes on when he's wearing all of the other safety gear, high vis overalls, helmet, safety harness etc.

Steel is coming up fast. Can't wait to see how far they're until the end of this year

Correct Sock!!! ST is just an Massive design, I like Ping An, I just wish they would give the big dog the respect and stop a centimeter short of ST's roof, with Ping An's spire.. The observation deck on the 2 will be the telltale evidence which 1 Should be Taller, hell, throw in Burj for that matter.

Thanks for the update Kanye. As I thought the ramp was temporary, as you can see they just started demolishing it.

I personally only look at roof height when doing height calculations because throwing a spire or antenna at the top just gives the building fake height. So Ping An will be 1929 feet to the roof which is shorter than ST and Goldin Finance 117 so it will be 5th tallest in the world when completed.

I was about to ask about this. The tower across the street is almost like the "forgotten" supertall.

There appears to be no progress whatsoever across the street.

Hopefully that portion of the project will still be completed, as I think the hotel complements the office tower beautifully and is really what makes this project.

Maybe they're planning to finisch both towers (hotel and office tower) at the same time. The hotel tower won't need as long as the 600m+ office tower to finisch, so they can still wait a little bit with it. ;-)
