Nice pics, thanks for sharing 10025.

Btw, those pics from the observation view looks to be from a video, would be nice if that video exist somewhere where its able to be downloaded!

With an architecture like that, who damn cares if it will ever be a WTB.
I would like to think that, by 2010, all the towering projects approved for Shanghai will be really built.

^ From the air, ya. Am sure it's different in that hole, I think this one is deeper from the looks of it.

Thx for your replies.
1. Below is a perspective from across the Huangpu River. It explains why the proposed Sun Hung Kai twin towers look taller than Jinmao.

2. Below is the observation bridge in the big hole high in the sky. Just imagine you're on it……

That's what I love about this building and Union Square 7 in Hong Kong.

Now, I wanna see more pictures of the hole. It would be cool if they decided to make the building taller than originally planned as well.

That's cool, so I'm guessing this thing's gonna be "open air" obersvation? What's the height of the observation deck? I honestly think this will be one of the best observation decks in the world due to the size. Wouldn't you be looking down at the Pearl of Orient's deck?

Yes there was supposed to be a ferris wheel encased behind the glass of the hole. It was going to have big cars similar to London's big ferris wheel. I remember seeing it on some TV show. Whether or not it is still planned to be in there I don't know.
