What can I say. Shanghai is busy to get their next project started even after the completion of the SWFC.

It's impressive to see a city just complete it's tallest skyscraper and then immediately start another even taller. That's pretty risky, but that's China for ya.

I've read some articles that say SWFC is pretty empty at the moment. Somewhere between just 20-40% occupied. The owners are pretty secretive about it. They had a lot of leases signed during construction, but many have cancelled (the now bankrupt Lehman Brothers being one em).

Look how big the hole is in comparison to the JinMao towe. JinMao will look so tiny when Shanghai Tower is completed.

Yes. I bet you can't get a good view of neither JinMao nor SWFC on the observation deck of this tower. That is quite a shame.

really? i thought it's more than 50% occupied! nevertheless, it will be fully occupied, when the (world)economy catches up again!

I agree with chinarulez that SWFC will be fully occupied once the world economy picks up. But I guess it isn't surprising that the SWFC is half empty because of the economic downturn.

General rule of thumb is the higher the floor, the rent will be slightly higher. But with the economic downturn many property owners have thrown that out. Their happy to sign any tenants, and usually at discounts. It's a buyers market right now.

It's totally unrelated to the Shanghai Tower, but does anyone know what those metal pipes are on the side of the Jin Mao Tower? I've wondered for so long and can't find information on it anywhere. They look so futuristic...yet I can't imagine the purpose.

They're just that...metal pipes. They have no structural purpose; they're for aesthetics only. I believe they've been spiked up now since that spiderman dude tried to climb up the building using em.

I thought it is obvious that these pipes are for the kitchens? No?

Ah yeah, that's what I mean. I don't mean the thin pilasters on the main tower, but the gigantic pipes on the side of the lowrise portion. They look like smokestacks for a kitchen or something like you're describing.
