This design is definitely by far my favourite. It would be such a waste of a fantastic design if this one is not built.

That SOM design is a great one but I like that tower picture above better because it really symbolizes a Chinese or Oriental architecture (like a dragon or a phoenix bird rising to the top). They should change the color to red to symbolize China itself.

What would this building be for? 1/2 of Pudong's towers are empty. Is this another spec building?

Of all China's 24 companies in Fortune 500, only two are in Shanghai. 18 are in Beijing and most of them are state-owned. Surprisingly, only two are in Hong Kong. If Beijing can just transfer maybe 4 or 5 of their companies to Shanghai. Another reason is Pudong still has lots of spaces and rich people prefers to live in Suburan area.

Doesn't really matter, because sooner or later everything will be occupied to the max.

First they have this rule about restricting height up to a max of 500m, now what is this crap?


If building can be that high SWFC could have secure the WTB for a year at least before BD is completed

Any update about final design and specs yet?

Whichever will it be, this new tower will definitely dwarf Jin Mao and SWFC!
