Where is that cheongsam tower being built? That would look cool in Lujiazui somewhere!! Enlarge it to 300m or so and it would be great!

Isn't Cheongsam Tower just a student project?

Everyone is entitled to their favourites but one thing this building does is beat burj kalifa (and everything else) by design.

It's funny to see how the SWFC will be dwarfed by this building, even though the SWFC is taller than anything ever made in the US or under construction in the US. China is so dominating in skyscraper construction, only Dubai is comparable to it. America really needs to start another skyscraper boom like in the 30s and 70s

Skyscraper boom is happening both in China and the US, its just that the buildings in the US are not as tall.

This whole complex of 3 buildings is absolutely genius. Jin Mao could've turned out really tacky but they made it look amazing. SWFC is just amazing, no word to describe it. And im sure this will turn out amazing too.
