Wow that lighting is fabulous! I hope it sticks with that every night like the SWFC does.

Shanghai is gorgeous! Shame on the butthurt jealous trolls who bash this magnificent city and skyline

Shanghai is a good example of what humans can achieve in a short time period. Hard labour bears fruit

Guys, Riley1066 didn't express his opinion in the most constructive way possible, but I don't think it's fair to immediately shame that opinion, nor is it intellectually honest to dismiss it as jealousy.

Aesthetics are subjective. The Shanghai skyline is not for everyone. Its most prominent towers differ vastly in style, and the Big Three + Oriental Pearl are also vastly different in proportion from the rest of the city. If you think of a city like New York or Chicago as "classically" beautiful, Shanghai is like experimental art. Being brash, experimental and adventurous is admirable, but it sometimes produces mixed results, or pieces of art that not everyone will appreciate or understand.

I happen to love Shanghai for this very reason, but I'll be the first to admit, I had to shift my ideas about what a city or a skyline "ought" to look like in order to fully appreciate it. And I think in the end, I like it for different reasons entirely than I like, say, New York. This is exactly why I think it's silly to try and do any kind of rank ordering of skylines by their respective "greatness," unless it's the ranking of a particular individual.

Beautiful building. Always said 1WTC should have been 2000FT to the roof + spire, but they're having trouble finding tenants as is so...

Not to worry; ESB also had trouble finding tenants for the longest time, and in the end it did just fine. 1WTC should have been designed to be 2001 feet tall as a reminder of how we came back from what happened in the year 2001.
Anyhow let get back to SWFC, one of the most beautiful Skyscrapers in the world.
