Nice pictures.

In my opinion Shaghai needs more "boxy" buildings like the ones in New York.

I think boxy buildings are the last thing Shanghai needs good on them for doing something different.

I don't necessarily think they need boxy buildings since that would make it look like everywhere else. Keep it the way it is and fill up all those spaces with nice towers. The only thing I have a problem with though is the oriental pearl.

It better to define this area as LUjiazui, instead of Pudong. Pudong is quite a large area with millions residents.

I think the "race" between Burj Dubai, SWFC, and US7 is something of a joke. Even if the towers in Hong Kong or Shanghai do top out at 484m and 492m, before Burj Dubai's frame has reached that height, will they really be able to claim any kind of record? Surely the tower has to be complete before it can be titled the world's tallest - and by that time Burj Dubai's frame will have soared well above 500m. I suppose that they could hold the title as the world's tallest complete building until the Burj is itself complete but surely that doesn't seem to warrant the feverish excitement on this thread? In any case won't Taipei 101's spire mean that they are only contending for highest roof height? Taipei 101's spire is 508m and is "official" according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. Having said that I've never been quite sure why the definitions of these self-appointed "officials" are so widely respected in the first place....?

Only 5 additionnal floors, or even a 16cm increase of every floor height would be enough to make this building taller than Taipei 101 ;-)

5 additional floors will make building completely different in form with completely different aerodynamical functionality and completely different weight...

I'm just guessing that they've been lying on the final height from the beginning... It's hard to believe they will stop 16m short of Taiwan's Taipei 101, really. Now I could be wrong of course :-)

No... I think you're right by saying that the SWFC when completed will still be shorter than Taiwan's Taipei 101...

However, if you don't count Taipei 101's spire, then the SWFC will be taller and that's how (if completed before the Burj Dubai) it will be the world's tallest building.
