I love the progress they've achieved so far or the SWFC. I can't wait for it to top out at 492 m. Its going to provide some of the most stunning views of Shanghai. BTW, isn't there supposed to be a hotel in the tower as well? Does anyone know which one?

Awesome progress, the farcade is rising really fast, and btw, IS IT OR IS IT NOT going to be the tallest building in the world upon completion, because it says in the title its only 492 metres which is actually shorter than taipei 101.

It won't have the title of World tallest building, but it will have the highest roof height of any building in the world which does not count Taipei 101's spire, making its roof be at 448m to the SWFC's 492m.

I'd love to see a close up of the slant and what it looks like at the moment, I don't think we've had one for a while.

I think it wouldn't be too difficult for them to erect a China Telecom (or Netcom whatever you call it) aerial on top of it to make it tallest in the world in absolute terms.
But then again, when the UAE building gets built, they will have to extend that aerial to some 309 meters to retain that title, and that's gonna make another record: the world's highest aerial on top of a scaper.

It doesn't look like a real tower. It's like a fantasy from a computer game!

yes it will have worlds highest roof for a little while. its ashame this wasnt built all those years ago when it originally started (1995?). it was going to be 460m and would of been worlds tallest on completion. but this will do.lol

I love the way the Jin Mao looks getting "lost" in the clouds. I can't wait to see SWFC do the same.
