Is it going to be fatter than the Jin Mao? From the construction photos, it looks a bit skinny IMO.

^ It will probably be fatter viewed on the three quarters angle but thinner if viewed straight on to one side of the square base.

Yeah it reminds me of Freedom Tower's bunker-like podium.

It's going to be a dark and window-less place....

SWFC is 5-10 feet wider than Jin Mao.

Part of the buidling will have a special podium with glass so at the base of the tower it has no added value to put windows there. As you can see in the picture below the rest will be made out of a stone decorwall or something.



probably for security but i'm not sure about that.

Good pictures, thanks

It's nice to see Pudong from the other side with the rest of the skyline in the background.
