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!
I guess they can build another supertall in Puxi, somewhere around Jin'an or Xujiahui. They can somehow sorta achieve the Hong Kong ICC and the 2IFC effect :p

Agreed. Needs some variation on Puxi.

Hi all.

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
Hi Library - fancy meeting you here ...

Looks to me there is no ground level - the count starts at level 1 and doesn't skip any. The other plans I have say 120 levels. The 128 includes the parapet and will not be the official CTBUH count IMO. It's like the count of 205 for the BK, or 163 for India Tower - just an equivalent number if there were levels right to the top - which there aren't.

Elevator info - thanks to Helghast for the find.

Yeah bring on the Xujiahui Tower and redesign it to be 500+. I live right next to the construction site so thats why, hahaha.

Oh and BTW, I almost forgot! Last Saturday (23rd April) I took this night shot over Shanghai Tower. Enjoy!

Really? so many girls? that's not very usual in the construction world, I don't see that proportion of girls in this forum XD.

I don't think that's the main team as Gensler was the architecture firm. This might be interior workers, designing specific sections or perhaps the entire interior.

I think like people have said before it is the cladding that is really going to shape this tower not the floor plate :_)
