No, they are still sticking with San Francisco. But I won't be surprised if the Chinese are the first to develop warp drive

Well, this is now my favorite skyscraper

Hong Kong ICC is now my 2nd favorite skyscraper.

And that video was amazing. By the way, the music is from the movie soundtrack "Band of Brothers", released by Sony Music Entertainment, performed by London Metropolitan Orchestra.

I left out that and Pingan Center Shenzhen, because both design and height are not final yet. Rest of them are final (except maybe they will extend even more Pentominium's Spire to surpass Shanghai Center )

Sited in the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone of Pudong, Shanghai Tower completes a trio of buildings that form China’s first super-tall district. While the adjacent Jin Mao Tower pays homage to China’s past, and the Shanghai World Financial Center signifies China’s recent economic success, Shanghai Tower represents the boundless possibilities of China’s future, the building’s shape a metaphor for the country’s connection with the world, space and time.

“This tower is symbolic of a nation whose future is filled with limitless opportunities,” said Qingwei Kong, president of the Shanghai Tower Construction & Development Co., Ltd.



That video is extremely STUNNING!!!!





What a design!

Would be splendid! I think the next tower if it will come... 750m?

Well, it will be nice if they had a fourth tower, but i don't think 4 is a nice number in the Chinese language though.

then they should have 9 towers, I think 9 is the best number in China because 9 is the fullest one digit number, meaning prosperity or something...

8 is also a good number in China (and chinese). It sounds like "Rich" when pronounced. Hence, Taipei 101 has used this number in its design.
