i wish it could add a few more floors in order to become the new WTB !

some after though about WFC..

if the building finally open for business in 2008~2009,the rest of Shanghai should forget about construction of office building,with large skyscraper like WFC,it twill take year to fill up the empty space.
consider emprire state building in New york,take more than 20 year just to fill up all empty space.

They spend more time celebrating things than working on the building's structure
Anyway, nice pictures.

when ESB opened its door, it was in the period of one of the worst depressions that America ever suffered.

China is now in high speed economic growth. Faster than ANY countries in this world ever seen. You be the judge on how quick the tower will be filled.

^ In percentage terms there are actually quite a few economies that are growing faaster than China. Some economies are on course to grow by 20% or more this year wheras China is growing at ~9% pa. I also think the tower will be filled quickly because it's so prestigious but there are nonetheless a lot of empty office buildings in Shanghai. You can see them when you walk around - no lights on inside.

It was nicknamed the "Empty State Building" at that time.

None of those 20%+ countries are normal though; it is achieved through recovery, not growth. I mean, both Iraq and Afghanistan achieved that number , along with other damaged economies...

Monkey is right though, there is plenty of vacant office space right now. Shanghai does not grow as fast as it once did; most of China's 9% growth figure comes from smaller cities and areas further inland.

That observation bridge at 97 F should be made as wide as the building to fully appreciate the scenary and to give it a wow factor when you stand at the edge. If built as shown in the render and you look down, all you see will be the roof !!

I've been away for a while and this is the first I have heard about the new bottle opener top, It's the most depressing news, this is honestly one of the ugliest buildings I have ever seen.

Disgraceful!

I disagree with you. Base is perfect. But top is ugly.

Certainly. Now I wonder what a trapezoid stood for in historical context.

The top matters more than the base IMO, It's what you see on the skyline.
