Live far from a city in northern Norway.

But was in Shanghai half a year ago, though i didn't check out that site up close when i was there. Anyway, this is the current site as seen in Google Earth.



Also, we're working on a map of Shanghai with all the buildings (me, z0rg and staff), this is very much under construction, but you can check it out (google maps):
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...81789&t=k&z=13

We are trying to put all 150m+ buildings which is U/C, Approved or proposed in it.

Kick ass architecture, I just hope they allow more space along the road for retail.

wow, what a building! if this turns out as the renders above, i'm moving to shanghai (again)! why shanghai gets all the cool stuff where HK (excluding the ICC) is falling behind? well, not yet maybe. but i'm sure in the next ~ 5 to 10 years shanghai will take over HK as skyline #1.

true. china is going to take over the USA as the no.1 world super power in a couple of years, my estimation: ~ 10 years. good for you if you teach your son mandarin, look at us chinese, we speak at least one foreign language, in my case that would be english and german. but that's OT. i really hope this building will make its own way in the skyline!

Another beauty by KPF. Looks cleaner than the WFC. Too bad it won't be up by next year when I visit Shanghai.

I seriously want pudong to look like the first render... it has way too many random/ugly buildings in Lujiazui currently. I hate all those 1990s building with antennas sticking out...zzz looks SO ugly.

The same architect as the CCTV tower? I think this building is stealing too much landmark status from the Pearl tower and the supertalls.

You know any other proposals Staff. Or is it likely that this will be the final design?
I dont know if it's just me but I think this building is taking way too much attention from other buildings in Pudong such as SWFC and Pearl tower.

Maybe there are other proposals not taking too much attention
