hahaha, you're right about that. I think I can see Batman chilling on the ledge of the building to the left, looking down at the ants that be, wondering who will piss him off next...

PS: I love Nanjing. Lived there for some time and absolutely fell in love with the atmosphere of the city. Though when the city is blanketed by the darkness of the night, especially around the bar district called 1912, it does have a kind of postmodern yet semi-Gothic/semi-Chinese and indeed 'devilish' Oriental Gotham feel to it...

After this one Nanjing needs more 200M-300Ms to complement its skyline.

Is it rare for skyscraper to have similar pace of progress of cladding and structure going up at the same time? This one is just like Burj dubai when most of the structure is complete its naked then it starts cladding from the bottom. I haven't seen lot of skyscrapers who have similar pace of cladding/structure at the same time like trump tower in Chi town.

Nanjing has an AWESOME skyline. I always thought it a cultural city rather than economic. Doesnt the proximity to Shanghai hamper its progress cause two financial centers rarely exist that close?
