Honestly, what's the point of building another monster this tall when occupancy rates are low?

I guess theres going to be a new home for cockroaches and mice soon

Reminds me of Seoul IBC but not as nice. Still cool though. Base is very weird.

The sticky out base kinda reminds me of the building from I, Robot.

Its a cultural tower not an office space tower. Occupancy rates in Shanghai are at 85% which is mediocre at worse.

This is all i was able to find at the moment, its hard to search in Chinese pages when i don't speak Chinese! I just hope i didn't mix this building up with a building which has been known a while!
Hmm.... I don't like this design all that much. What is the location exactly? I hope they don't build it in Luijiazui as I want SWFC to dominate at least that part of Shanghai.

From the rendering, it is not located in Lujiazui, but along somewhere by Huangpu River.

Indeed, the rendering isn't quite realistic, does look too simple & cartoonish, but it might turn out nice if they really build it.

About SWFC dominating Lujiazui, I think it was a huge mistake building it right next to Jin Mao. It really kills it, they don't match. They're both cool towers, but Jin Mao has much more class.
