Compared to the last pics from the Yin Mao tower the surrounding area of the hole is totally cleared and ready for a new siteplan for constructing the first basementlevels.

Looks great!

I can't help but notice the sharp increase in the number of cars parked beside the SWFC, which leads me to think: why haven't they planned for an underground parking? Or is there one annexed to SWFC, and the open-air one is just auxiliary? Isn't it a waste of land in any case? Most importantly, what about the parking lot for Shanghai Tower? Where is it located? Obviously there cannot be a surface one, since there's so little room beside the tower.

I'm pretty sure the parking lots surrounding the SWFC are temporary.

There is a huge underground carpark in SWFC, with those machines that moves your car around and dividing one underground level into two tiers.

Since it's been too sensitive?

There is an ongoing attack on SSC by an army of clone bots. They are apparently in a test phase (still very lacking in english). This one survived for sixty posts anyway. Why haven't the mods compiled an IP list yet? They are annoying as hell. Especially the smileys capping up their absurd lines.

I thought this is pretty cool, the model of shanghai tower looks amazing.

Marshall Strabala in Shanghai, uniquebuildings於2010 年5月5日上載

Architect Marshall Strabala views a model of his Shanghai Tower (left foreground), with Shanghai's skyline behind him. Slated for completion in 2014, the Shanghai Tower, will be located in the city's Pudong District, adjacent to the two tallest buildings seen in the left background.

That model looks so beautiful. Imagine one day, helicopter footage of this 600m+ mammoth, with a shiny glass facade reflecting the evening sun.
