you are correct, the towers nearing completion are being put into low gears.

Its because the infrastructure around the banking cluster are still being blocked up from all the construction that's going on in the surrounding area. And they won't be cleared up until the buildings are finished. (look at the road to the riverside of the cluster).

If they finished a tower now, that building will most likely be islanded inside all the construction site without proper road/hydro/electrical access.

It makes perfect financial sense for all of the towers in that cluster will be completed at around the same time. Which is why some of the buildings seem like they've stopped building and others (the development tower) are being fired up the sky.

Jasper is a true beauty. From the render, I think its going to be one of the most elegant skyscraper in Shanghai when it is finish.

Yeah, I guess they are finishing those 5 towers withing 9 months. 4 of them are really beautiful, what a pity that Merryland Building is so freaking awful.

Btw, they are planning another 5 180-200m next to Jasper Tower, hope they will become a reality soon!
