I'm not saying anywere that walls wille go up. I'm just saying that walls can be underground part of the tower. I have only 59 posts on account but i read a lot about construction procedures, I can tell you

Yeah, but these walls are above ground and the cavity extends below street level. The tower's construction will be a central cement core with curtain walls on the outside. My guess is that the whole thing will disappear before too long.

I am fairly surprised it hasn't been demolished before now. Regardless of what it was before or why it's still there, it's not part of the new tower.

Hi all.

This is one of the best designs out there. Very cutting edge.

This one is going to be interesting to watch grow.

The artists usually buy stock people (imagery), and they might not have had asian people. I don't think there's any deeper message to it.

Yeah, and on the wrong sinde

You can see Shanghai Stock Exchange building on the same side

This picture reminds me of "Mission Impossible 3" when Tom jumped from the top of Bocom Financial Tower, and landed near "Tomorow Square"

It is obvious that Pearl Tower was added on the original photo while rendering Shangahi Center.

It has been more than two weeks without any update pics.. I'm curious how it progresses, if they're still speeding like in the beginning things must have changed by now! This will be an interesting one to follow in 2009.
