I was looking forward to seeing the Four Seasons up there, hopefully J-Hotel is just as nice?

This seems to be a problem across most Asian cities. I'm in Bangkok at the moment where everything has to be viewed through a haze of grey.

Wrapped in smog: Something in the air?

But by then Shanghai was grappling with its own bout of abnormal pollution. Tens of thousands of Chinese are reckoned to die each year because of foul air.










Smog casts a pall over Shanghai's global ambitions.


Shanghai suffers the worst smog pollution ever.


Аnyone interested unpleasant statistics could offer to meet the full information here.

The situation in Shanghai is critical at the moment, but that´s nothing, take a look at air pollution in Beijing...

I didn't know the entire facade would be lit, I thought only the crown would be. Awesome!

Amazing pictures! I think the ST deserves an award for looking most like the architectural renders when it completed... or topped out.

I think that in 2014-2015 the Shanghai Tower will take first place in for its innovative aesthetic and functional design The Emporis Skyscraper Award 2014-2015.

The Emporis Skyscraper Award is the world's most renowned prize for high-rise architecture and has been awarded on an international basis every year since 2000. The primary criteria in awarding the prize are excellence in aesthetic and functional design. Every year, a jury of experts selects the winner. Buildings must have a minimum height of 100 meters and have been completed during the previous calendar year.
