Hmm, may have to do a little sleuthing to find it

SOM tend to come up with great designs, so I expect this will be no different.

The SOM tower is great but honestly, this skyline is ugly (It will be better with the yellow dog )

I agree, it certainly does seem to fit the height criteria.

This couldn't be funnier. SOM was the only design we already knew to have been rejected. They even removed it from SOM's website.

well perhaps the article " http://roll.jrj.com.cn/news/2008-02-...003288501.html " is false!

or maybe " http://news.hexun.com/2008-01-17/102926695.html " is false!

big-dog, what do you think??

big-dog, what do you think??
I read the Jan 17 news again, the reporter says the SOM design is abandoned because "it's removed from SOM web site", "it's not likely to pass the first round poll" etc, nothing from any authorities.

The latest news is not 100% sure either but it mentions the news is coming from Shanghai State Property Supervision Committee.

I feel the second one is more reliable though I might be wrong.

Round it up to 600 meters and I will vote for it. 600 sounds much taller than 580, even if the actual difference is little.

Well, the outcome is supposed to be released in the coming weeks. We'll see soon.
