^ the one without a full circle, it stops at the skybridge if that makes sense.


Whoever made that thing on sc4 really has too much time on their hands. however puts the sc3 version to shame

WoW, thanks 10025. It's hard to believe that what we see is gonna be much taller then the Jin Mao it's standing next to. The Jin Mao climbs high into the sky.

but i have a question....there are 2 or 3 empty areas near Jin Mao Tower, there are any project for that areas?
then, I found this approved building in Emporis http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=150142 , anyone can tell me the construction area of this tower? I think...probably is in Pudong....

To Sonic from Padova,
As is planned, one of the empty lots near Jinmao is reserved for yet another supertall, which is taller than Jinmao and shorter than SWFC.
The proposed North Bund Tower is on the west bank of Huangpu River; in other words, it's in Puxi.

To malec,
Yes, it is. But time has not been set for construction of this third supertall, not to mention what it will look like. Anyway, it IS on the schedule of the municipal government.

They are luxury residential buildings. To buy one square metre on the top floor, you have to pay 10,000 US dollars.
Some people think it is wrong to build residential buildings in Lujiazui, the core of Pudong, because they destroy an otherwise perfect skyline.

Thanks 10025, for the update photo's, it's going to be a few weeks before we see any standardized, slip forms installed, notice the corner columns, (the larger ones at a 45 degree angle,) covered with sheer pins, for concrete encasement. This formwork is specialized to the actual "second" floor, and once this area is complete, we will see how the load transfer is distributed to the foundation. And notice also the thousands of post tensioning cables, on the lobby level floor, (throughout the entire foundation area, no doubt) this is skyscraper construction at it's best hour, with the latest structural engineering technology, visable to us.

This tower will be intense, certainly the one to watch..!!! (along with BD.!)
