Maybe they're trying to say that this tower will be a tower for people of all races? XD

Or the render is just designed by an American firm, who use western people standardly.
Like they have those figures in some database, but they just don't have Chinese people in there.
And this is just a detail, it's not about the people, but about the building so who cares if that's not totally right

I think there will be a lot of westerners in Shanghai Tower just like in SWFC. Firms that can afford to rent a floor in such buildings are most likely to be multinational.

I was granted a unique opportunity to visit the site of the Shanghai Tower. I was allowed access to the top floor of construction (18th floor). I took a lot of pictures and I will be uploading them shortly.

Your'e correct

Its the real situation that counts, just like ICC in Hong Kong, lots of foreigners in the renders, mainly occupied by Chinese anyways, which makes sense. Renders give a good indication about how the place will look like when built.

Another odd thing about that render: Look at the level they seem to be at. Now look at the Oriental Pearl! It looks 1600M tall! Does the perspective seem correct?

Nothing wrong with the render since Shanghai tower is a lot closer.

Yes, but in real life does it tower over those other buildings like that? I thought the CBD had grown so tall that the Pearl blends in with others.

Pearl tower still dominates the Pudong's skyline from the bund anyway.
But from some other angles, like this one, it's a whole different story.

Forget about the background, its as dodgy as the people in the renders. When was the oriental pearl tower to the 'RIGHT' of bank of china building? Between Shanghai tower and Oriental pearl, there should be Jin Mao and IFC and then the TV tower and then the huangpu river, not the other buildings that below to the other side of century park. Am i right?

The main thing about that render is the interior, the pearl tower and bank of china buildings are there merely to remind us that this building is in Shanghai, ie, they are iconic. Thats all
