Thanks for the pic Harry Chao I've never got to see the future site of the 400m or did they raise it to 450?,, now will that be taller than Kinkey, according to feet and the quick math, isn't Kinkeyabout 1100 ft and this will be 1250 or so? (2nd tower)

And just as important, buidling another tower crane.
Looking at the 3rd pic I'd also say that they prepare to jump the crane left of the core.

Can't see the above posted pictures, but crane #3 made the first jump!
They also started to fill the mega columns on the north side with concrete. The fourth crane is still on ground level.

Shenzhen will have 9 supertalls by 2016, making it the leading Chinese city with most number of supertalls, followed by Guangzhou with 8. Way to go Shenzhen

Yes, I think only the right part of the formwork on that side needs to jump a little bit more. Then there is enough space to attach the crane to the core.
