I remember the SWFC had concrete covered on either side of the building all the way up to the top.

Yeah, just noticed that too. And its way too large than it should be. The second thought was that the center square is the core, but then it is too small... wird

Now I get it. I thought you posted the model of the current skygarden level while it is one of the much higher levels (around 6 skygarden level). The higher the tower goes core is changing its shape and size.

I find it interesting that the mechanical stuff is sandwiched into the floor of the skygarden levels between the trusses!

Sky Garden is technically above the larger mechanical floors.

Has this been posted before? I think it illustrates the height/size ratio of shanghai tower as to the two supertall next to it pretty well.

The render was originally posted to illustrate the question you have just asked. My guess is there will definitely be some towers planned to be built there in order to complete the original Lujiazui masterplan (a circle of skyscrapers surround the 3 supertalls), cant be sure if they are going to be a twin tower thou =/
