Okay I understand your meanings.But I don't want to have cities which copy skylines or have the intention to look like an other skyline!!!In my opinion the SWFC looks great and because of that they should keep the view on it clear!!But it don't fits well into the skyline or the location isn't the right one.

Shanghai...

I mean the building is nice and everything and Shanghai is on fire but instead of building tall buildings they should build little ones beside so that you can see a Huge skyline...I mean I simply just don't like all tall buildings and no short buildings beside it...

The SWFC would look tall in every city in the world.

She certainly is growing up fast. I'm suprised they are cladding the lower floors already, are they intending to use the lower floors before the building is complete?

Just a small OFFTOPIC...
Did anyone noticed how famous Shanghai gets in Hollywood?

I'm sure u've heard of the amazing scenes in MI3 but apparently there's another one! UltraViolet.

Nice!


I'm sure the SWFC will get a lot of attantion in the future action films.

Unfortunately only skyscraper fans (such as us) and people actually from Shanghai will recognize the city from those movies. Others will just assume it is some CGI magic that creates this city. Shanghai is going for this hyper-modern look, which to me looks almost space aged, especially Pudong with the Pearl Oriental.
