I'm interested in the height limit of Shanghai!!!

no limit at all like in the Middle East? But there was some warning about skyscrapers making the pudong ground sink below sea level and some stage in the future they'll surely make some limit to the height of the skyscrapers in shanghai, especially pudong.

So the name shanghai tower on those board hasn't been printed on for long.

Imagine how these workers in the ground must feel that they'll be building something to rise 140 metres higher than the SWFC.

When you see the model like this, Shanghai looks a lot like Tokyo, with all of the highrises spreading out in every direction, but with a nice supertall cluster in Pudong!

OMG how long were you looking at that pic skyline ffm?
