When people think of Shanghai, they always think of Lujiazui in Pudong, and think that's everything of Shanghai's skyline. Anyone who ever visit Shanghai and go around the city will know how wrong that idea is. Lujiazui is mostly just a pompous and artificial showing-off in my eyes, and it's also so tiny! It has so little to do with the real Shanghai, both in terms of culture, landscape and architecture. Shanghai has so much more to offer than that ridiculous-looking Lujiazui skyline.
i totally agree with you. Lujiazui is like Dubai, just a place for ppl to show off how much money they have in the form of artificial buildings. Puxi is soooo much denser and better than Lujiazui. Puxi side of Shanghai is a legit functional city that grew naturally. Aside from being economically more vibrant, having better infrastructure, having a greater population, being commercially more vibrant, etc., Puxi's skyline is about a million times bigger than Pudong. To be honest, i really hate pudong

Jing An Si area is one of the business, entertainment and shopping centers of Shanghai, so inevitably you will see lots of highrise buildings over there.
Hehe, of course I mean Jing An Si!
I'm actually opting for an appartment there (or somewhere in Xu Jia Hui).

I think it needs to be taller because it looks a little fat. Or it just maybe me wanting to see another tower that will rival Jin Mao and the SWFC in height.

KPF became famous initially for its award winning post modern designs, but they do an incredible job with creating unique geometric structures - Plaza 66, JR Central Towers, SWFC, Santo Plaza in Miami, to name a few. Wheelock Square is one of them.
