It's China's National Day from Oct. 1-3 that's why construction is slow.

I think it'll look better without all that protective coating peeling off everywhere.

That cladding looks great, would be better if the grey was more of a gold colour like in the renders, but hey it still looks great.....

Hi all.

We can see the main tower 'hole' is down to the floor of B3. They aren't pouring the floors of the podium lower levels as they continue with the top down method - just the concrete beams. I guess they will pour them at the same time as they work their way back up from level B5 within the 'holes'.

I still find it very interesting they are using the top down method only for the podium and not for the lower levels under the main structures.


Ray.

I just doesn't look like a "serious" hole. The Shanghai Tower site just looks so much bigger and "professional." And this is supposed to be a taller building.

- a B5 is more than sufficient I believe is the same as Shanghai Tower and plus ST will have the taller roof , but this tower will have an antenna to surpass the difference
