Will those diagonal square tubes in the supercolumns be filled with concrete or the hollow remains as a sort of passage with ladders into them?

Nice, seems we will see the other mega columns soon rising out of the ground. I guess that the diagonal tubes won't be filled with concrete. They are simply there to increase the rigidity of the tower structure and for loading transfer.

I think the tower could rise faster than now...

Much work around going on...

It has an elegant simplicity to it. I see elements from so many iconic towers. Very nice!

In a few weeks we'll need a different camera angle to see what's going no with the project.

Be glad there are people who take pics regularly from such a high point. ( I believe the Chamber of Commerce Tower )
btw I see they have taken down one bamboo stairs.

Yes, but i guess the core has to rise at least 2 more times until the cranes can jump

Maybe, I think that in the 4th pic you can see holes in the concrete (left side) where the crane support will be bolted to the core.

Yes, but these holes are probably still for the lower crane support. You can see the tubes which will be installed there on the left site.

The main tower is rising so fast! Every time I come back here there is progress. Also those pieces of steel are massive! It's amazing to think how a single structure like Ping-An can retain so much weight.

I noticed this morning that the boom for the missing 4th crane is already in place. Hope we can see soon some more crane parts arriving.

Is that worker taking photos... or site surveying from the piece of steel? He certainly picked a neat spot.
