If only they got rid of the park and built 3 more 2000 footers. That would put Shanghai in its own league of skylines!

No! every great city should have nice downtown park. You look at NY's Central Park, San Fransico's Golden Gate Park and even our Vancouver has its own Stanley Park right in the heart of the city. The green space would add a touch of freshness in the big concrete jungles. Imo, the Lujiazui Park should be 10 times bigger than what it is now.

Shanghai has a lot of parks. There is for example the park around People's Square, which is pretty much downtown.
There aren't many people who are "using" the Lujiazui Park. It's more like a decoration for the shiny office towers...that's it's only purpose right now.

guys, please DONOT re quote photos from previous pages, it'd be enough by mentioning the post # that you're refering to. The bandwidth is just too expensive for re quoting photos that we've already seen.

I was merely mentioning the skyline and only skyline I know nothing about Penang but from the perspective it really looks like Hong Kong beta version with many features (skyscraper holes in skyline) missing
