Yes, guys I agree with the Jin Mao obs. Nobody would want to go. In fact between Oriental Pearl and SWFC, I don't see why anybody would want to visit Jin Mao obs even without Shanghai Center. I do hope however Shanghai Center has an observatory on top. Just imagine looking down on SWFC by over 100m.

Lotta fun, lotta fun.

In Sydney the 48th floor once-highest observation deck was converted to office space. If that won't work for Jin Mao they could probably lease the floor to the hotel operator for another high-class and high-level restaurant.

They give you a pearl by visiting the observatory deck, at least until 3 months ago

i'd still like to visit the jin mao although very soon it will be the tower to be ignored as an obs to shanghai but worth visiting purely for sheer design insider the tower.

I've got a feeling this tower might be 612 meters tall for, let's say, political reasons. (OHHH, politics! Not in this forum! )

I don't understand why anybody would visit the Jin Mao observation deck anyway, since there is a skybar on the floor below it which has no entrance fee and the drinks are cheaper than the tickets to the official observation deck.

Why not 1921 meters?

1921 is the year, that the Chinese communists party was founded

The Pearl Tower observation deck will always be the best one to visit. After all, it's the only one from which you won't be able to see the Pearl Tower...

News: 118F, 580m, SOM design

That's what I read from today's (2.15) Shanghai Business News (Chinese)
http://roll.jrj.com.cn/news/2008-02-...003288501.html

It says, the building construction will start in 2008. Govt official mentions it 'll be 118F, 580m. The building MAY use the design from SOM.
