ok, forget about appearance or service quality. Even judging by the length and connections, New York is not the NO.1. At least shanghai here has a more extensive system, and London is probably ahead of New York as well.

BTW, Berlin or Washington metro is far from being the best subway system if we talk about appearance.

If so, then you should go around town and take some photos for us. I'd love to see what you come up with, even if it's just your cell phone camera. Even my LG Lotus Elite takes pretty good quality outdoor photos.

That would also prove beyond reasonable doubt that you're telling us the truth. If I lived in any big city, I would be posting construction photos here.

not really. planned buildings around EXPO park are at most 200m+.

For subway fans, there is a thread named 'best subway' in the urban hall of fame subforum, lots of discussion and pictures:

in the meantime let's stick to the topic.

The area right beside the EXPO park will be turned into Pujiang Yaohua CBD, and according to news reports, the tallest building to be built will not exceed 275m. They emphasized that the new area would not follow Lujiazui in terms of height. I think Shanghai Tower will be the tallest in Shanghai for a long long time.

one report:

The EXPO area is too far away from city center, its outside of the inner ring as well. So i would imagine the government to saturate areas inside inner ring before the expand outwards.

Hi all.

We can see the core form has jumped a level in cityrains shots posted by Nord.

The columns for the 6 level podium on the left side of the shots look to be up to level 7. Looking at the renders, the curved roof of the podium does seem to be that high even if there are only 6 levels.

Many drawings show the podium to be 5 levels but the Gensler pdf says it will be 6 - I guess they would know.


Ray.

Is there any solid statement about exactly how much public space there is actually supossed to be? All I've heard is to the effect of "a lot." As in more than just an observation deck and a few shops and restaurants. Is there like an actual square footage? Either way I'm guessing most of it is the same old PR bull to get support. A promise for public space is the developer's parallel to a political promise of "lowering taxes"

A high profile foreigner who can't even spell the names of high profile Shanghai landmarks. Nangpu Bridge? Lujiazhui?

What I've heard, it is slated to feature a giant shopping mall much more prominent than the one in SWFC.

I'm not very good at pinyin. When I read/write Chinese, it's usually in characters.
