As Lujiazui is mostly a business district, they do this to minimise congestion. Many Pudong residents cross the river for social venues. Shanghai is plenty crowded in mixed-use areas.

I've just uploaded the buildable model for SWFC. It's a bit narrower than Jin Mao, but it dominates it vertically.

I'm aware the model has a vastly simplified base but making an accurate base really isn't worth the effort/

From everything I've read, that's the final hole.

The third crane is up but nothing much has changed on the structure. Hasn't got any higher anyway. I assume they will build some sort of climbing rig to rise with the core. ANyone have any idea how high they will build it before this happens, or is it already there, hidden under the scaffolding?
