LOL! I love these people spamming and insulting cities. Like their city is way better. I wonder what they can come up with their insults. You should do that if I were you. You know? Support your ignorance / arrogance capability?

FYI. Shanghai is a huge city. That image totally fits the profile with 18 million people. And it's not over yet. They are going to do more. It's not enough. Pudong is going to be so big with those projects.

So please. Stop the China bashing. It makes fool out of you. Even United States Government got a great respect to this country. More like fear and respect. Remember what you post because you may have to take that in 20 years.

god, this pic again... it's so old. people always need to prove how big and great their city is. just don't feed the troll! we all know (well most of us apparently) that shanghai is an amazing and modern city. it's growing every year at a fast rate, with all the positive and negative side effects. just let it go and if you have the need to push shanghai down or up, we have several threads for that.

shanghai is far away from having "brilliant" public transportation, compared to HK they have a lot to catch up. i wonder if you have ever been to shanghai and wanted to visit a place outside the main city core - good luck with that. fortunately shanghai is massively extending its subway system, so that in a couple of years we will have a complete different situation.

yes highrises are smart, supertalls aren't. they are what they are: expensive prestige objects,i.e. new landmarks.

no, if NYC would have the money we would see dozens of new skyscrapers but no supertalls popping out, due to NIMBY politics.

Actually, it is from late 2008-- so it is not very old at all. In terms of development it can seem a bit old though, considering that Shanghai has added hundreds of towers since it was taken.

Nevertheless, it is a great picture if you want to demonstrate the sheer massiveness of the city-- seeing as ordinary skyline photos can not nearly encompass the ocean of skyscrapers that is Shanghai.

I know it is alittle bit off topic but.. There was a picture showing Maglev, a highway and a container ship in same scene. Can anyone post it here again or give a link to it? It was one of the best pictures I've seen from Shanghai.

Fantastic progress. I see they are starting the old structure dismantling. Looks like all those old short walled structures will be disappearing as the tower nears ground level.

Everything about this project is on such an unprecedented huge scale-- it certainly calls for a wow.

They might serve the same purpose, maybe something proprietary/more advanced?

Air and photo quality really. At street level it can be pretty pleasant and varied. Arial photographs can be quite misleading at times.

Great update. You can already see the megacolumns positions. Now it is waiting for the first core rebar to arive before they will poor the concrete for the raft.

A posibility is that the silver like pipes are for cooling the concrete inside the raft. Because of the height of the raft temperatures inside can go up to like 70/80 C. So sometimes they will use watercooling inside.
