Shanghai World Financial Centre vs. Union Square Phase 7

both are great towers, tall, glass, both in beautiful cities and both to be completed by 2007! but which one do 'you' think is better?

IMO, SWFC has a nice shape, but is taller because of the observation area. thus making the situation much like Jin Mao and 2IFC.

cheers, apache

Both superb, but SWFC is more innovative and striking in my opinion.

one thing i don't like about SWFC are the sides (not the front facade with the circle at the top)... it looks quite doggy! ><

USP7 get my vote.

SWFC looks like a giant bottle opener.

I must admit that the design for SWFC is to me.. a little bit more dynamic and unique. However, i feel that US7 will be HUGE for HK. It will be an amazing sight to see TWO 400m+ buildings across the harbour from each other. Coupled with HK's already jaw dropping skyline and the gorgeous natural setting..

SWFC for sure.

US7 is huge, but little more.

I like Union Square 7 better. I like "flat top" buildings the best although SWFC kinda does have a flat top as well. I just like the way US 7 looks better.

I prefer SWFC for its more daring design. In my opinion not the prettiest, but it deserves its acclaim for uniqueness.
