Are you talking about the age of my country? Our history may not be that old but our history is very rich. We've done a lot for the world at large don't you think. I was just saying I'm older then these buildings. And I'm 25 call one of the past is calling me old lol.

Well, either way, this is at least a year and half away before it starts to rise.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think they do gaping holes in Shanghai due to the silly puddy they have for soil in Pudong district, they drive pilings for foundations instead.

Well they dug a bloody big hole for the bottle-opener. I believe they then drove piles from the bottom of that. The hole for the twin towers going up was pretty big as well but they covered it up with a concrete grid at ground level. They did that for the Jasper and Dev towers too.

Yea sure

I remember from an article that there once were debates if the Shanghai Tower is suitable for construction in the soft muddy ground below. But well, the project is still approved. Hope it doesn't REALLY sink.

Urban legends invented by green lobbies.

Shanghai is settling, all cities under fast urbanisation process do. Some sensationalists forecasted back in the 20-30s that NY would be an underwater city within the end of the 20th century either

The vast area behind SWFC is still mostly low-rise, I think they can redevelop them and add more supertalls !

Guys...it's called symbolism. Not that hard to understand. Jin Mao was designed to reflect the past, SWFC the present (or recent), and this one the future. Doesn't matter if the material matches those used in the past. I don't think a 1000ft+ tower will stand using materials that were used to make a Pagoda. Don't interpret the symbolism so literally.

I take what they'd said for what it means. Jin Mao design may have been inspired by China past but its features are more of the present then must buildings built to day.
