Wow...
I have a feeling that Shanghai is going to have the greatest skyline in East Asia in the future.
btw, I really like the architectural design of this tower.

Edit: No doubt it looks fabulous from the sky, but the extended first a few floors are just sooooooo uninspiring.

GE updated shanghai lujiazui to 04/2009 showing shanghai center's construction site. Hence Jerryang made a comparison between shanghai center's hole and swtfc's.

Huge difference..really 632m vs 492m

its a photoshop where jerryang replaced the image of the completed SWFC with the image of its hole, so that we can see the size comparison between the two buildings' holes.

Thanks for the explanation, and I do hope this is the case...

Ideally, the rest of the block the SWFC occupies should be filled with carefully designed pedestrian friendly low-rise high-end retail, to give Lujiazui a bit more life especially evenings and weekends.
