I'd never have spotted that in an hour, but it is a good laugh though.
I noticed it quite early and this was not the only one!!! In front on the right-middle you can see several modernist inclining buildings,...

Hehe. Well, air conditions have nothing to do with greenery, that's a modern superstition created by green lobbies. You need something like 5000 trees to offset one single car. They add beauty to the cityscape though

There's a lot of buildings in that render that haven't had updates in their own posts for a while but which have grown heaps. Can we persuade any shanghai residents to make a pudong trip with their cameras?
... and wot's the box going up opposite the superbrand mall?

wow that render look so surreal. But I think the top part of the tower may be a bit short in height.

Don't you mean the building in front of the Oriental Tower.

It blocks the Pearl Tower.
