Shanghai Cathedral Tower

Ping An Insurance Co., China's second-largest insurer, plans to spend US$242 million to building a skyscraper in Pudong financial district to house its asset management division. The Shenzhen-based insurer will fund a building that is 150 meters tall on a 27,600 - square - meter site next to the Bank of China Tower. Shanghai Lujiazui Finance & Trade Zone Development Co., a real estate developer, said it had sold the Pudong site to Ping An for 447.1 million RMB

Wow, that's beautiful. It's really classy looking and will be head and shoulders above the other Shanghai skyscrapers.

It also is surrounded by a time warp that takes you back to the 1930s. Impressive engineering there.

picture 1 and 3 are a little different, picture 1 roof and facade is more Gothic look, more elegant, more attractive. That's really an amazing building to Shanghai. Please stick to first rendering!

Out of place but very beautiful. I hope they would use those the soft tinted green windows not the totally green ones!

I don't think that this design will fit in at Pudong.
