It's height actually looks a little conservative relative to the other two in that render. How tall is the IFC?

The IFC towers are 250/260m. Or do you mean the WFC?

Oh whoops. Um, of course I meant the WFC. What is the IFC? Is there even a such thing? And I found it, the WFC is almost 500 meters which is taller than I thought and explains the render, which I guess is accurate, then.

Is it a render?
Or was it just recently constructed and is real?

The picture looks way too hazy and real to be a render.

I have to agree that the pedestrian circle is a brilliant way to deal with the problems of pedestrians versus vehicles. This entire area near the Shanghai Tower has become a showplace of modern China. I visited Shanghai in 1987 and stayed in a rundown hotel that had the rustling sound of what must have been rats in the walls. I would love to go back and see it now.

If the bridge had retail it would be a lot better.

That's because these days US has too many regulations on construction site, look back and you will be amazed of how fast Empire States Building and other 1920s and 1930s skyscrapers were built.

Yup, completely real. And it has REALLY improved the environment in this part of Lujiazui. The traffic used to be atrocious at that intersection between Century Avenue and the Lujiazui Ring Road, but now with the separation between vehicles and people, the traffic flows much more slowly as do the large crowds of visitors.

The elevated pedestrian walkway will also soon connect to the main park in Lujiazui, Lujiazui Central Green, which is across Century Avenue from Jin Mao/SWFC and used to be very difficult to get to due to the heavy traffic and wide streets.

Has traffic gotten a lot worse in Shanghai recently, and is the walking and bicycling people associate with China decreasing?

This building actually has slightly less floor area than the Shanghai World Financial Center, both are over 4 million sq ft. That's not including the over 1 million sq ft the Shanghai Tower supossedly has in basement floor area. Does anyone know how much underground area the WFC has? It's a statistic that is rarely listed but it seems substantial, I think. Judging by the foundation hole, which looks just like the Chicago Spire hole, the basement of the ST has distinct floors, which I'm assuming is a unique feature as over a million sq feet sounds like a lot of basement.
