Great thing about construction in China for a funded project is it's a blisteringly steady pace!

You can see the cranes behind


I was sitting in my office behind these buildings when you were in Shanghai. The world is so small

I really don't like that side of Lujiazui... The skyline looks better from the other place like Bar Rouge or Vue Bar imo

the buildings are just too tall to be near the water front. if they were half or three quarters their current height, more of jinmao and SWFC etc would be seen, makes it a lot more dense that way

Given that you can almost get a 180' view of Lujiazui, and the skyline looks good from most of the angles, i think the planners have reasonably done a good job.
