Here is the Pudong render Kees posted in question:

I guess only two tower cranes ll take the skyscraper to completion. Its massive too, if you compare to the few men standing beside the crane frame.

may be this one (from www.ppa-ny.com) :



X3-2 Office Development

Shanghai, China
The 43-story Class A office building will provide 80,000 square meters of office space in a prime location in Shanghai's New Lujiazui Financial District. Rising to a height of 200 meters the tower plan rotates 45 transforming a square footprint into an eight-sided glass prism whose facets will shimmer the entire day with reflected light. The resulting floor plans take maximum advantage of the site and offer direct unobstructed views to Old Shanghai and to its renowned Bund located on the waterfront across the Huangpu River.

Information

-150,000 mē office development
-Major components include 50-story tower
-Construction start scheduled early 2004

Architect

Pei Partnership Architects
L.C. Pei, Partner-in-Charge

SWFC's base is 190 feet square, or 58m. At least, that's what I worked out from my model. If I remember correctly, Jin Mao's base is around 195 feet.


It looks right to me, how about you?
