Across the vicinity of SWFC site, is a new Pudong area named as Lu Jia Zui Financial District of Shanghai. Among the development is a 48 storey A class office block in early construction. The tower is named as Jasper Tower.

Jesus Christ !!!!!!!!!!!! SWFC looks so great, as someone said, weather cannot hide this enormous construction, but............on the contrary, it gives the tower a great appeal !!!!!!!!

The inside core shot is not a perspective us "forumers" normally would get to see... it shows just how big the inside of that core is..

It's really growing now. What floor is it on btw? Can't wait to see Culwulla's diagram to see how it compares to the burj and others.

For quick reference, the core size is approximately at 55 x 55ft, shown in yellow lines. Enough to fit in 2 long buses in a row.
