5.9m thick mat! That has to be some kind of a new record.

Hi all.

Hi Munwon.

Shanghai Tower's raft is 6 meters thick - the source is Gensler and the figure could be a rounded number. I don't have the exact dimensions so this could very well be the thickest ever.

Update

Hey Everyone, Has there been any movement in the site for more construction equipment? It's the first week of August and the Laudin Group was supposed to be in full swing by now I thought.

Nothing new, they're still digging, they said that water is the problem of this delay, so I guess they're still working on the problem.

Thanks for the detailed info!
Thanks for the awesome photos, renders and diagrams!

I have the plaza to floor 7.

Floors came to 163 at the 'heiipad/deck/tennis court' and 180 where the windows stop in the main core. If counting the glass up the right side of the render as possible floors, 197. Perhaps if I missed a few and counting the very top of the glass cladding on the right, 200 at most.

Don't know the size of the floorplan above where the glass core ends so do not know if that is maintenance or possibly a penthouse with the right hand cladding as the windows for a multi-storey PH.

:cheers

Sadly, I have to admit even for a closed off site, a development this big should have some kind of pictures leaking
