How about trading our ugly Freedom Tower for this one? Please?
This one would be so much better than Freedom Tower, if not built in Shanghai it should have replaced Freedome Tower!

What exactly is a cultural tower? That building looks like something from starwars and it sure isn't Chinese, SH is still part of China, right?

I have actually no idea what they really mean by a cultural tower. But i guess they will use it to more hotel usage, museums, shopping centres, cinemas and congress halls as cultural usage.

im guessing "cutlural tower" means somthing along the lines of empire state building becoming the signal for new york and america at the time. and now the burj in dubai is a symbol for the new dubai. and now, if it it gets built, the chinese government believes that it will be a symbol of the new china.

i dont know if any of what i said is true, just my take on the idea... i love this building by the way

That was clear in 2003^.

Also my chinese forumers can you tell me when we will see the super super tall going up next to SWFC. It's going to be 600m or so from the models ive seen.

I remember a date like 2014 or so??

A briiliant tower with a unusual shape.How it was said here before, i think this tower would be the right tower for the new WTC in N.Y and why they didn't build two of them in New York "twin towers".This would look great in New Yorks skyline....
