The fact that when this building is finished it will be the 2nd tallest building in the world and that this is one of the most interesting buildings (if not the most) going up in the world today!

No it isn't? Tallest above ground I guess.

If this does end up being the tallest U/C worldwide, then that justifies a sticky. Being "the most interesting" is subjective and not appropriate criteria for being stickied.

I think this thread deserves to be stickied, given the fact that shanghai is growing in popularity these days in forums. And being the tallest building in shanghai in one of the most rapid changing CBDs in china.....

I think this thread should be sticky. The Shanghai tower has quite a distinctive design.
(Just my opinion )

Then you'd have to sticky the 1WTC thread, and the India Tower thread, and the Skytree thread, etc...
It just doesn't make sense to sticky a thread unless it's a new WTB, in my opinion.

I guess there should just be a separate thread for Chinese supertalls, there are too many of them anyways hahahaha, lol nah, I don't think it should be stickied, however I would have liked it to be. I guess constant updates and constant discussions relating to the tower or not, like this discussion is sure to keep it at the top anyways

Well IMO, i don't think a stickied thread should be a WTB, as long as the thread has generated a certain popularity to it and there are constant updates on the construction, i don't see why it shouldn't be.

The indian tower, 1wtc are not the WTB as well, they're great and unique in their own way and i don't mind if these threads are stickied. Anyway this is just my opinion, stickied or not depends on the majority of the forumers here.....

Almost all buildings in this area look amazing. Just look at that 'small' box behind Shanghai tower, it looks so elegant, and its just a box. That is how high quality most of the buildings in the area are!!!!!!!
