Shanghai is really one of the cities proving that skyscrapers can be/look friendly for people and needn't be inhumane

The way this building meets and engages with the street is an embarrassment. The tower is elegant but the base is just awful! No elegance, no style merit, no practical offering to the street, just very, very poor.

It's fine having stunning views from afar (and to afar) but if you don't get it right at street level it's a just one big failure! Shame

Wow what a skyline ! amazing to think that in my short 38 years of life Shanghai was just a little village, to a mega metropolis!

I think you're confusing Shanghai with Shenzhen.
In the early 1980s Shanghai already had a population of 13 million...hardly a little village.

What's with all these pictures with the building lit up? I live here and I have never seen the top lit up.

Hahaha, and thats a building only 30 meters lower than the PTT... Looks like even our tallest tower will be a midget amongst that cluster, dominated by the twisty Shanghai Tower!

Hey Eroha, firstly I really appreciate all the efforts you put into the thread, and onto what i would like to say, i have no personal distaste and nothing against you, but every time i visit ST thread, I get bored, bored to death that every next photo you post is so predictable and always not anything different, or is it?
And it would be really sweet when you stop commentating apart from topics, and yes, could you stop bold-ing the texts, huh?
Note: Btw, my volume is at its normal, so i hope you would not come out shouting at me, or anything
Thanks man if you heard me out!
