Last but not least, this is the view from Oriental Pearl, looking towards PuDong:

I hope this won't be taken as spamming because it's a closely related matter but ST's smaller "brother" SWFC needs YOUR vote at the Supertalls World Cup. There is NO way that Chrysler building (IMO, a rather ugly structure far inferior to SWFC) could win over it! Let's not let it happen: http://xl.skyscrapercity.com/?page=o...erday=20110608

Very sadly i think people are overweighing its "historical significance". Because the lack of a diagram of actual size comparison, people do not understand that the difference in size is just as significant as the difference in history. Lastly i think people should be more prospective looking, art-deco is not a reason for winning.

True... and even if you want the greatest Art Deco, you won't look for it in NYC or America in General. It's all in Europe and it's not high-rise. I really must have missed something but I have never seen WHY on earth those art-deco skyscrapers in NYC or Chicago should be considered anything beautiful or great. I actually find them quite limited and uninteresting once you discount the "historical significance" created by cheesy Hollywood movies and unsophisticated bits of the popular American culture. SWFC is clearly the best participant in that competition (I mean the entire competition, not just the current one vs. Chrysler Building).

They already have one... it's called the 3 gorges dam

not exactly a triumph, but than again humility was never the communist party's greatest strength.

Shanghai Tower represents the strong mercantile culture of the Chinese
and the Yangtze delta specifically.

At what level of the core will the next skylobby steel appear? I think it will be interesting to see the distance between them, because you will be able (someday) to see all the way up to the next level. I know that's a lot of empty space, but what great space it will be!

I am not really impressed by the progress. I was expecting some 24/7 hard work, but I can barely see any progress week after week. Might be an impression, though.
