Those sticking out will be cut and brought at the same level as the other ones. Judging by the pic you posted, I think they may have started doing so already.

Ehm, this comparison is actually wrong. The only thing that the contemporary and the ancient Egypt have in common is... the name. The contemporary country/state of Egypt has absolutely nothing to do with the ancient Egyptian civilization. China, on the other hand, is the oldest continuous civilization ('country' is certainly not enough to describe it) in the world and has a history of over 3000 (some would put the figure at 5000) years which has never been interrupted or exterminated.

Sorry for offtopic, btw

By then, all the constructions of streets and avenues should be completed long before Shanghai Tower. Anyway, this is a nice picture. The weather is lovely.
