Off topic: seeing that last photo reminds me of crossing that elevated 3rd ring road as a pedestrian, it's horrible. Are there any plans for that, like pedestrian bridges? After completion of these towers there will be more and more people walking between those buildings, there should come a solution.

I was reading an article about Beijing the other day. In 10 years it will have the busiest Airport in the world and largest subway system by far. Truly an amazing city!

I think you might want to revise the second part of that statement concerning the size of its subway system.

Shanghai and Beijing are neck in neck in terms of size of their subway systems.

I expect it to stay that way.

Looking at the Kerry Center next to it, which is 140m to the spire, I'd say the core passed the 100m already.

Just wonder if the CCTV tower is in use and if the Mandarin Oriental, which was burned in 09, has been rebuilt.

This is going to look great when complete. An awesome complementary tower to the existing WTC supertall
