Nice looking bar, I hope they get it right unlike the one on top of Kingkey in Shenzhen. Also got to make sure you don't trip and fall through the glass or roll those chairs into the glass to fall 1900 feet down.

I wasn't dissing yourm photos at all,, there great actually,, Just about 10 pgs previous me and another forum member bet on which would finish first,, Ping An or golden finance,, I just was commenting that Ping An was rising faster,, so I wanted to change my bet,, not a real bet,, just messing around with which one was gonna top out first.. Didn't mean to drag you into it,, I was just commenting how it's not keeping pace with PingAn,, misunderstanding sorry.. Great photos BTW

For a long time Goldin Finance 117 was making incredible progress while Ping An was just a hole in the ground. This tower is still moving ahead with incredible speed, second fastest of any tower I've seen (Wuhu Riverside Plaza being the fastest imo). However, I do think Ping An will finish first since it is now moving at a fast pace now and is shorter in roof height than GF 117. I'm guessing Ping An finishes in 2016 and GF 117 finishes in 2017.

GF117 is scheduled to reach 8 floors by the end of the year, while Ping An is scheduled to reach 10 floors. However this construction site is absolutely massive and they are truly working as fast as possible, it's just that the first floors are huge. After the base is complete it should shoot up.

Not sure, it's possible there's a higher one in Burj Khalifa.

I wouldn't think so given the Burj Khalifa will be quite thin around the 600m mark already and no room for a swimming pool and the highest occupied floors are corporate suites

Edit: Just researched Burj Khalifa, apparently it currently has the second highest swimming pool in the world in the sky lobby at the 76th floor. World's highest is on 118th floor of Ritz Carlton hotel International Commerce Centre in Hong Kong.
