I really hope they dont increase the hight. couple of meter more will be ok but world tallest or smt like that will ruin the perfect skyline. I hate Taipei 101 effect.

what are you people talking the bulk of a building has nothing to do with being the tallest building in the world. This is a amazing building who care if its the tallest.

back to topic:

632m is the perfect height.

Jin Mao - 421m
SWFC - 492m

492-421=71; 492+2x71=634 ~ 632m

The Aesthetics of the Shanghai Tower

Shanghai Tower

Definitely, the best designed supertall anywhere.

Too bad it wouldn't hold the record as China's tallest structure ever. Damn you, Ping-An!

Yep, ST is just beautiful. A breathtaking design. It would be awesome if ST was around the 700m mark, but for where it's situated it's probably at the right height.

This tower is just perfect for the Shanghai skyline imo.
