Modern steel has been designed to rust only a small amount inward. The rest of the steel remains unrusted.

1st time i,ve seen pics of this building. And what a building!!

I like the rectangular opening and the fact that there are no spires. Makes a nice change.

When is the completion date?

(Nice Picture Qazaq!)

It is a really good design, but in my opinion it don't fits well into the skyline of shanghai.And it is too much hidden by surrounding buildings.I hope the local construction agency will forbid to build near around the SWFC to enhance and keep the view on it.On renders the SWTC already disturb the view on it.

Pudong is already sparesly build as it is. Other places like Manhattan the area is packed with buildings that overshadow each other and the streets below them. The thing i love about Pudong is that, for me, its the greenest financial area with wide streets. There is some land around WTC that has been built and i think it should be. It fits perfectly to the Shanghai skyline which is starting to look like Chicago's with two spike heights at each end.

Thats exaclty what I dont like about Pudong. Density is way too low.

It is better environmentally if the building density is too low. If buildings are too close to each other, wind flow to the city is reduced which will cause hotter temperature and cause less sunlight to shine. I agree with WhiteMagick, Pudong is the greenest financial area. The city planners are really wise people, they seek to make the city green as the city modernise. Just take a look at the number of parks in the city and the amount of money invested into them. Widely sparsed building is better IMHO also because you can see a clearer picture of each building better thus appreciatin them more. Cities with buildings built closely to each other are so typical, Shanghai is unique in a sense. It feels greener. Besides there is still a lot of empty lands in Pudong, building more skyscrapers sparsely will enhance a city image as a financial center without comprosing its greenery in my opinion

I totally agree. You got exactly my point. Look at 9/11. When the twins went down they damaged all the building around them and one really got badly damaged.(don't remember its name)

Why? Cause they were built too close to each other. Imagine what would have happened in one of the twins first tilted and them fell. Half of manhattan would have been flatted.

Pudong is a real urban jungle of concrete, steel, glass, grass and trees. All major cities are now regretting the lack of green space cause it causes serious pollution and smog problems reducing the quality of life in the city.
Shanghai will all its green space will have en edge.

With that other tower/aerial like building nearby made of all those circular objects the towers previous design with it's circular hole would have been so much nicer. The square / trapezoid hole looks harsh, ugly. It's stupid and started over something serious but irrelevant - Japan not telling their kids in history class the details of WWII. Therefore cant have any circular symoblism.
Just recently announced - the new Chinese square wheeled car! Bit bumpy, but at least it doesnt resemble the Japanese emblem of the rising sun.

Yes, kind of kindergarten behaviour.

You can definately make out the taper on the right side in this pic. The first and second pics show the corner starting to flatten out for the taper. Great shots! You can follow the start of the taper up to figure out how much higher the building will go.
