How so, may I ask? Shanghai has nothing to prove. Shanghai Tower will be amazing when it's complete, and (no offense to anyone) far more innovative and interesting then the PAIFC. Besides, PAIFC reaches it's height with a spire. Shanghai Tower, although it's floors (IIRC) don't reach as high as PAIFC's, it's crown looks much more natural and a part of the building then the spire.

It seems there is not enough room for the hotel construction site.

Naive. To be number 1 in China means nothing, unless it's world's tallest. Shanghai centre is way prettier than old styled Ping'an tower。

Agreed; Ping'An is rather retarded looking, and obsolete in style (by about 70 years) before it's even built. It is desperately in need of a redesign.

it may even not stay the tallest of china for long considering there is a maybe 700m+ in tianjin, in Qingdao a proposal, there is also this 666m concept for several chinese cities.

edit: now looking up we can also add zhuhai and if its only 648m the baietan tower in guangzhou. so this building won't have the title chinas tallest for long at all

Pictures taken today.

Has the cladding testing changed of color? I can't find the previous pictures, but what I've seen today seems that the color is indeed not gold anymore.
Does anybody remember where is the post that was showing the first pictures of the cladding testing ?

Then there are new structures that I don't understand what is their purpose. Anybody has some ideas?
See the structure at the right hand side of the cladding testing?

These are new pictures of the outside of the North West corner of the main construction site, between the construction site and the Coco Park North East corner.
It's getting deep!

Earlier I was saying that I was surprised with the positioning of the barracks on the hotel construction site as it seemed that it was in the way of the hotel.

When you compare the original map:



With the actual construction site:



And that you put them on top of each other (with some distortion). You could see that the hotel is right on top of most of the barracks:

But in fact, by browsing the thread I have noticed this rendering picture showing a different design than on the original map. And this rendering seems coherent with the actual hotel construction site.

Maybe they won't build the hotel until they have finished the mall and the main tower? Once they've finished these two they might move the barracks and then start building. At the moment it doesn't look like much is happening on the site anyway.
