If that's an illustration will become a reality Shanghai Tower bypass the previous record two times US Bank Tower 310 m height.


At the moment US Bank Tower tallest building in the world with a rooftop helicopter area.






U.S. Bank Tower (Los Angeles)

Actually, I think the helipad was scrapped. They all are. That's partially why LA still has the record.

That is not 99% smog.

The pictures with the smog have not 99% smog but less. And it also have fog. Please remain in the truth.

And if the wealth of china goes on, the smog will past. So it was in Germany, in England and so on.

There is a helipad on the IFC in Guangzhou. If it is in use, it will be much higher than the US Bank tower in LA.

A walled-in helipad like that would be extremely dangerous. It was likely scrapped the moment they studied the question properly, regardless of feasibility.

With all the better looking skyscrapers there, the guy in the second photo is taking picture of the Oriental Peal Tower... I guess it's still the icon of Shanghai.
