Just out of curiosity but why did the urban planners in Shanghai decide to make Pudong so pedestrian-unfriendly? The buildings are so far apart from one another that it really makes it inconvenient for it to really function as a downtown area.

Anyways, on the other hand, nice photos! I really love the updates and can't wait for this project to be over!

The place is not quite pedestrian-unfriendly, since people rarely need to go from one building to another. If you're thinking about people solely walking to work, that rarely occurs elsewhere in the city anyway. Just because development is dense in one place does not mean people happen to find jobs next to their apartment blocks. If one has to take the bus or underground, then all districts are roughly equal. The street grid in most of Shanghai is surprisingly sparce; Pudong is no more so in that regard. Every avenue has bus lines on it, the city has over 1000 bus lines, and downtown will soon have a second underground line.

Damn, Shanghai knows how to get shit done!!!


Once upon a time, 8 months ago...



Boom!



I'm guessing it is about 20% done, and the floors reach about 90-110 meters.

Great updates as usual. This is not a request, just an idea; but would one be able to photograph it from the Jin Mao? Mabye get an idea of its base.

I think the (free, as opposed to the obs deck) Grand Hyatt coffee bar faces the wrong way. Maybe find somebody that works or stays in Jin Mao that faces the other direction.
