The other stuff was just a smokescreen to throw people off as to my real identity.

No, seriously, tell me it's a joke, alright?

I'm sorry but how is Shanghai's air quality relevant to the construction of this tower? Answer: it is not.

Please take your environmental/political agendas elsewhere.

However seeing that you live so close to the Shanghai Tower please go and take pictures for us and contribute positively to this forum!

I'd say so, it looks they are constructing the core box at the moment

You're either lying at worst or severely over-exaggerating at best. I go to work near Lancun Road subway station, and I can see SWFC clearly almost every day (unless it's foggy or raining), and that's at least 5km away from Lancun Road. The air pollution in Shanghai is nowhere near as bad as you make it out to be, and has dramatically improved in recent years (I've lived here since 2007, and I first visited in 2005).

Which part, exactly? I can guarantee if you're a westerner/laowai and have lived in Shanghai for more than two years you probably have heard my name. But that's not important.


What's important is that despite the gleaming beauty of this tower, Shanghai is still heavily polluted. It's an issue that's deeply relevant to the construction of this tower because it's symbolic of the hasty development that is often responsible for the hirrific air quality. China is the single worst environmental steward on the planet. I find poetic irony in the building of a multi-billion dollar tower that will likely be shrouded in mist/haze/smog most of the time.

Regardless, I will be taking pictures of this tower on clear days (to disprove the naysayers who think I don't live here) and on polluted days (to dispel the myth that Shanghai isn't a very polluted place).

Is there any significant difference in the air quality of Lujiazui 1,5 m above sidewalks (nose level) and air quality 400+ m above sidewalk level?

Precisely how does Shanghai Tower affect the air quality around it? Will it have a chimney?

How do people get into Shanghai Tower when it opens to live and work in? By car (that pollutes and needs parking lots or houses), bus (that likewise pollutes but needs just bus stop), on foot, by bicycle (does not pollute but needs parking), by trolley (no pollution), tram (ditto) or metro (ditto)?

I think he actually meant "angel view", as in looking down from the sky.

Agreed, a person who identify him/herself as a "high profile personality" is either mentally immature or delusional, should be banned promptly.

Damn when did this become street level. It could't have been that long since, I last visited this thread.

Thanks for Cityrain photos posting!

From the last photo it is clear that ZS crane with white cab has not diesel. It has electrical power supply. It is interesting why they decided to use one electrically powered crane between three ones with diesel-hydraulic supply? I suppose with comparison purpose...

The design director of the project said that they planed to let the core reach 50th floor by the end of this year.
