Shanghai Tower reminds of ICC when it was in its earlier phases of construction. Probably see the same kind of turn around time. Overall, it looks like they're making great progress.

This Tower will look absolutely great when finished. Very Futuristic!

I hate how shanghai tower makes swfc look so small and i hate how swfc makes jinmao look so small hahahaha

Will the shanghai tower be that tall? I think when the tower is completed, it will resemble more of the planned cbd that the gov has. At the moment, besides oriental pearl, it doesn't look that resembling lol

very impresive, for the first time i visited shanghai in 2006, jinmao was the tallest and i paid 100 rmb to enjoy the view on top, then in 2010 i found swfc right behind jinmao, couldnt help myself again, i went to a travel agency then i enjoyed the view on 94th 97th and 100th floor, i think next time i will be on shanghai tower, just waiting.........
funny enough, when i was at shanghai peoples square i saw swfc and i thought it was near so i walked towards it, damn, i didnt know it was far away and i had to cross a river, LOL, but i enjoyed a boat ride too, with a spectacular view of skyscrapers, cant forget that experience

Well, I don't see any chance.
But anything could happen, who knows.

That's true. The only chance for Lu Jiazui to bulid a even taller building is to locate it in the central lawn.

I don't think a building taller than Shanghai Tower would be that great in Lujiazui - ST will already dwarf every single building around it without an even taller building; looking at that picture/render above you wouldn't guess that Jinmao was over 400m!

A couple more supertalls between 300-400 would be nice to give the skyline more variation - atm there are loads of 180-250m buildings then the big 3. There's probably no more plots left though!

There can be another tall tower in Shanghai, it is a good place for them, only it is when it will happen. Maybe a stalinist tower would look good + make the country's ideology look good too.

128 storeys - how is this counted ?

Could someone who knows this project well please explain:

How are the 128 storeys counted ?

I counted through the floors on the diagram, and get 120, maybe plus or minus 1 or 2.

I know that some Chinese buildings skip certain numbers that have 4's in them, but with that, I would come up with a different number.

Is it possible that by the time the whole structure is in place, that it may acquire additional floors above 128 ? This has happened with many well-known tall buildings recently. ( I can't quote names on here. )

Next question:

At this early stage, does anyone know what the elevator configuration will be ?

Thank you

I wonder what it feels like to be working on and designing and watching on of the tallest buildings in the world grow up. I hope one day I'll be doing it
