This will be the tallest skyscraper in my opinion. Not like that ugly super-thin skyscraper called Burj Khalifa. 50% of Khalifa is a super duper thin. Shenanigans!

Hey Nordschleife...
Why are the majority of your uploaded pictures titled "r.jsp.jpg"?

I always upload some pics to a Chinese forum called gaoloumi, and then these pics were titled like that. Why? I don't know...

No it`s not. Reason being, thin you can fold, but thick you can`t stretch.

LOL, at 632 meters Burj Khalifa is more or less as "thin" as Shanghai Tower would be.

Rather more thin I would say: LINK.

Not to mention the fact that while burj looks the same at the base it is in fact three wings profile, while the st is full triangle so its way more of the building here.

In person the Shanghai Tower should have a bit more staggering of effect because of it's size. It's like the CN Tower compared to the Willis Tower. Willis Tower seems much bigger in person because of it's thicker proportions. A tapered design certainly looks even smaller the higher it goes, which I always find kind of underwhelming.

If thatis the case Mecca Clock Tower would be the most staggering building when completed because of how wide the base is.
