Only if they keep the round hole at the top. With the square hole...it's just another building to me...that is MY opinion of course.

IMO, i feel like that would be better even if the rest of shanghai were like taipei or tokyo with midrises but lujiazui looked like that.

if that image comes true i think Hong Kong, Chicago and NY will have some really serious competition. Is it me or is the Japser Tower not in that image?

^What does that mean? Shanghai indeed have them already (though some still u/c), but scattered in Puxi and Pudong. That image means a present for Shanghai, a collection of certain recent buildings constructed in Shanghai. There will be more presents, cause the construction keeps going.

I think Shanghai is surpassing all of them (Chicago, NY, HK) either now or within a decade (very fast).
